If you live in a big city like Glasgow car crash accidents can seem like a relatively everyday occurrence. With the amount of traffic that is now seen in every big city, especially at rush hour times the probability of accidents and crashes is very high, but fortunately these accidents are often quite minor. On some occasions however, in cities like Glasgow, car crash incidents can be more serious and may result in serious injuries for some or all parties involved.
If you are involved in a Glasgow car crash, or any car crash across the country, that wasn’t your fault but that still caused you injury then you could be owed compensation. The law states that anyone who is injured in an accident or incident that wasn’t their fault deserves the option of seeking compensation in order to help deal with the physical, emotional and financial results of their injury.
What to do if you were in a Glasgow car crash
If you are involved in a Glasgow car crash that wasn’t your fault then there are a number of things that you can do to help you be able to launch a compensation claim for any injuries which you may have suffered. Firstly, if you are able, or if there is someone with you who is not injured, try to get some photographs of the accident scene as evidence; this is especially important if the scene clearly demonstrates that someone else was at fault.
Secondly, throughout the aftermath of the accident you should keep records of what happens including any discussions with police or doctors and ambulance staff. It is important to remember however, that your health is the most important thing and that if getting your injuries treated prevents you from taking photographs etc. that doesn’t mean that you will not have a case for a compensation claim.
