When to get the police involved after an accident, and how to find injury claim specialists in Forest Heath
If you have had an accident then the first thing you must do is ensure that you get the medical attention you need right away. In the case of a serious accident, you risk serious injury or complications if you don’t see a doctor as quickly as possible, which is why you must look into medical help as your first priority.
However, you should also look into getting the police involved as quickly as possible if you feel that a crime has been committed, or that you will need a police report to help you to make a compensation or insurance claim later on.
- If something illegal has happened. If you feel that your accident was caused by someone behaving illegally, you should call the police so that they can investigate. If you don’t call the police then there is always a chance that someone else will and you could end up taking some of the blame for what happened if you aren’t able to prove what happened.
- If the accident was serious. In the case of any very serious accident you need to think about contacting the police so that there will be an official record of what happened. This will help you to make insurance and compensation claims, and speed up the process of tying up loose ends.
- If you aren’t sure whether a crime has been committed. It is always better to get the police involved so that they can work it out for themselves than it is to decide for yourself whether or not you think that a crime has been committed. It could still happen that later on the police will decide that there has been a crime and there will be less evidence to prove your innocence later on.
