If you have been involved in an accident and someone else was to blame, Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a personal injury claim in Edinburgh.
If you are involved in a road accident then you are much more likely to know who was to blame for what happened. If the accident involved your car and another car, then you will know who was to blame simply because it either was or was not you, and if it wasn’t, it was clearly the other driver.
If you are a passenger then you may have seen who was to blame, and in a larger accident with lots of cars involved, you may have seen which car made the first mistake. In these cases it may be useful for you to come forward with this information to help with insurance and the police investigation.
Some ways to help an injury claim in Edinburgh
Here are some ways to do this.
- Write everything down. At the scene of a road accident, one of the worst things you can do is to start placing blame on others. What you can do instead is make notes about what happened as you saw it. Making notes means that you won’t forget anything later.
- Don’t place blame. Don’t get out of your car and start blaming the person that you felt was to blame, as this is a very sensitive situation and you can find yourself in the middle of an argument or even a physical fight if you go on the offensive with the other driver.
- Let your insurer know. You should contact your insurer soon after any accident so that they know that a claim is likely to be made. You should also give them your account of what happened so that they have an idea of how the investigation is likely to go and to help them to approach your case in this way.
- Find proof. Any proof that you have that someone else was at fault will come in very useful for an injury claim in Edinburgh, and you should gather this as soon as you can.
