Being involved in a road accident can be terrifying and result in serious injury and even death. All road users have a duty to drive with care and respect for others on the road; but sadly there are many road users who are so wrapped up in their journey, and where they need to get to, that they forget to be aware of what is going on around them. If you have fallen victim to such a driver then you have every right to make a claim for compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

What should you do following a road accident?
The first and most important thing is to get help. If you or anyone else involved need urgent medical attention then call for an ambulance straight away. Even if you do not need to go to a hospital you should see your own G.P as soon as possible; many injuries take some time to display themselves.
If you do not need to call the police to the scene you must report it to your local police station within twenty four hours. This is a legal requirement and failure to do so greatly jeopardise any claim you may make in the future .
Obtain the insurance details of the other party involved and call your insurance company straight away with details of the accident.
If there are witnesses to the accident then take their contact details as these may be needed later by your expert injury lawyers in Chulmleigh.
