There are lots of reasons you might need to make a personal injury claim. It could be because of an accident at work, or it could be for a slip, trip, or fall. However, one of the most common reasons for a personal injury claim in Babergh is being involved in a road traffic accident.
The moments after a road traffic accident can be traumatic, but it’s often when you need to pay attention to critical details to avoid blame being incorrectly attributed to you. If you’re making a personal injury claim for a road traffic accident, then there are some things you should try to record.
Thankfully the police and medical services often record many of the details you will need if they are required to attend. An additional thing that can help your personal injury claim in Babergh is pictures of the incident that show the vehicles positions. These days nearly everybody has a phone with a camera, so this can be used to take pictures of the scene. If you are not comfortable using your phones camera, or your phone doesn’t have a camera, then it is a good idea to keep a disposable camera in the glove box or boot.
If the emergency services aren’t required to attend then ensure you record the other party’s personal details, including the cars make, model, and registration.
One of the most common injuries from a road traffic accident is whiplash, which can take several days to fully materialise, so even if you think it is a relatively small accident, it is still essential to record all the details in case an injury materialises later.
