Road accidents are some of the more common sources of personal injury claims, as well as being some of the most complex. This blog will help you find out more about making a claim for a road accident and finding an injury attorney in Swinton who can help you out.
Accident on the road
We live in one of the more crowded countries in Europe and our roads are packed with an ever increasing level of traffic, so it’s no wonder that there are thousands of different accidents taking place on our roads every day. Many of these are unavoidable and cause relatively little damage, but occasionally they can leave someone with lasting injuries.
Under UK law, all drivers are required to carry third party insurance which covers any damage or injury caused to anyone while out on the roads. This will be what you’re claiming against – not the driver themselves, but their insurance company.
Making your case
The other thing to remember is that disputes about what happened are common. Few of us are willing to admit blame at the best of times, but when money is involved this ceases to be a question of honour and becomes an issue of pure hard currency.
The courts will decide whose story they believe based on what evidence they can find to back it up. For this reason, you’ll be best served if you can provide any pictures of the scene and/or witness statements from people who saw the accident take place.
Take notes of witnesses’ contact numbers and any names or numbers of police who attended the scene. You won’t need to contact them, but pass these details onto your lawyer, who will do this for you.
Once you have all that information, it’s a good idea to package it all up and come and speak to us at Accident Advice Helpline. We have a team of people on standby 24 hours a day, seven days a week ready to take your call.
They will help you look into your case and make a judgement about whether or not it’s worth pressing forward. In coming to this judgement, they will be influenced to no small degree by any of this information that you can bring to back up your claim. So, the more information you have, the more valuable and accurate our advice will be.
