In a Road Accident Injury Claim in South Brent . . .
You will need to speak to the other driver in order to get their insurance and personal details. You need the other driver’s details in order to make a claim against them, and it can also be useful to have their insurance information for your claim. Any accident also needs to be reported to the police within 24 hours, even if they have not been present at the scene.
In a Council Injury Claim in South Brent . . .
Council compensation claims are usually down to breaches in duties of care to people who live in your borough, as set out by the council, such as broken or cracked pavements, or ill-maintained public areas. Because of this, it is always worthwhile making a complaint to the council first. You can also let them know that you will be seeking compensation, as they may have it in their power to award you compensation there and then.
In a Criminal Injury Claim in South Brent . . .
If you have been injured during the course of any criminal activity then you must inform the police before you contact Accident Advice Helpline. You will not be able to claim any compensation if there is not an official police record of the attack or incident, as this proves that it happened, and can also be your way to get compensation from the attacker directly. Otherwise it is unlikely that you will be able to get their information.
In a Trip or Slip Claim . . .
You should always write to the person or business at fault to complain about the incident and leave an official record with them of what has happened. In an accident claim it can be very useful for the company you are claiming against to have a record of your complaint and the incident. It also helps if you write to the company with your complaint as soon as the incident happens, so that they can investigate of their own accord.
