Have you had a road accident that caused you to get injured? Was it someone else’s fault? If so, you could claim compensation through experienced compensation solicitors in Christchurch and receive a payout.
What to do if you have a road accident
The scene of a road accident is characterised by confusion, worry and stress. But it is important to do a few things to make sure that, if you decide to go ahead with a compensation claim through experienced compensation solicitors in Christchurch, your case will proceed properly.
Of course, these things help with the usual insurance claim, too. They include:
- Calling the police if there is any injury or property damage
- Taking the name, address and insurance details of the other driver
- Collecting witnesses’ contact details
- Photographing the damage to your car and any street furniture, and the road conditions
What to do when you get home
When you have been checked out at A&E, if needed, you can take photographs of your injuries in the privacy of your own home.
You can also get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline and begin your claim!
