What to do if you’ve been hurt in a car accident in Scarborough
One of the first things to do after a car accident has occurred is to ensure that you get medical attention as soon as possible. This may mean that an ambulance has to come to the scene of the accident if you have suffered serious injuries, or anyone else has.
There are other things to take care of at the scene, such as informing the police (this will need to be done if there is injury to anyone, or if there is an obstruction to traffic) and exchanging contact and insurance details with the other party or parties involved in the accident.
While at the scene, try to get contact information for any witnesses to the accident. Perhaps passers-by stopped at the scene, or maybe local residents saw what happened. Their accounts will be useful for the insurance claim, and for the compensation claim, should you decide to make one.
Take photos of the damage to your vehicle, too. Your photos will also record the driving conditions around the time of the accident.
Who is eligible to claim after a car accident?
If your car accident was another person’s fault, and it led to your getting injured, then you could make a claim. Just make sure you begin the process as soon as possible, because there’s a time limit for bringing proceedings. This is just three years after the date on which you got injured.
Injuries must be medically confirmed, so if you weren’t attended to by an ambulance or taken to hospital, make sure you see your GP at the earliest opportunity.
To make a claim, you can call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to an advisor as soon as possible. They will take your details and tell you whether you qualify, and if you do qualify, they will give you an estimate of what you could receive if you win your case.
