Have you had a road traffic accident? If so, you could claim compensation through solicitors in Caldecott if you suffered injury and the accident was someone else’s fault.
When you have a road traffic accident
Road traffic accidents can happen in the city, in the country, in your own street – pretty much anywhere, really. Where the accident is caused by the other driver, and you are injured as a result of the accident, you can make a claim for compensation through solicitors in Caldecott.
Many car accidents are witnessed by someone, or perhaps several people, so you should gather these witnesses’ contact details at the scene of the accident.
But it is even more important to obtain the other driver’s details – name, address, and insurer!
You should also take photographs of the damage to your car, any damage to property, and the road conditions that you experienced at the time. Later on, photograph your injuries.
Finally, get an ambulance if needed, and if there is any injury to any party or property damage, the police must be called!
Making your claim
You will probably want to wait until you have been checked out by a doctor and got back home before you call solicitors in Caldecott to make a claim. This is very wise; after all, you don’t want to cause yourself any unnecessary stress, and when you have been in an accident, even focusing on one task at a time can be difficult.
Just make sure you don’t leave it too long before you call, because there is a three-year deadline for making a claim (unless you were a minor at the time of the accident, in which case, the deadline is extended).
