You might want to make an injury claim in Knaresborough for compensation if you have been involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault.

What should I do if need to make a road traffic injury claim in Knaresborough?

Even though a personal injury claim can be processed up to three years after being made as the victim of an accident that was not your fault, there are certain steps you can take to make the claims process easier.

Straight after the incident you may be feeling shaken up and be in pain from any medical injuries, but if you can manage to do any of the following (or ask someone else to) then this could help you when you come to make your injury claim in Knaresborough:

  • Call the police straight away, even if the crash was fairly minor. The police can help identify who was at fault in the accident and act as an independent witness;
  • If you have a camera or a camera phone with you, take photographs to show what has happened and the damage incurred. You may need to use this as evidence when you come to make your injury claim in Knaresborough;
  • If there were any other independent witnesses who saw what happened when the accident took place, ask them for their details. You might require them to make a statement to back up your case if the other driver disputes their negligence; and
  • Avoid discussion with the other driver with regards to fault or blame. Never admit liability or apologise to the other driver.

Obtain medical assistance for your injuries as soon as you are able to do so. It is important that a true picture of your injuries is recorded directly after the incident. After the incident, you should also:

  • Keep records of all the different organisations, such as the police, insurance companies and claims companies that you have spoken to in the days following your accident; and
  • Keep receipts if you have had to pay out for costs associated with the accident. For example, you may have had to pay out for travel expenses if you could not use your car, or you may have had to pay for a cleaner if you were physically unable undertake to do tasks such as this.
