    Injury from a car accident

    Suffering an injury from a car accident

    We live in a world dominated by the use of cars, by getting everywhere using roads. Whether you are a driver being driven, or a road user on another form of transport, the fact is that cars are everywhere. This means the possibility of sustaining an injury from a car accident is high. We are fortunate to be living in time in which manufacturers have highly evolved mechanisms, which can assist us when the worst happens, but a car accident can still be a very serious business.

    If you have had your life impacted in any way as a result of someone else’s negligence which led to an injury from a car accident, then you should make a claim for compensation. Take our really quick 30-second test to see if you can claim, then give us a call today.

    Making a claim for compensation for an injury from a car accident

    Evidence is what is going to help you to make a compensation claim. Whatever your situation, it is imperative that you are able to prove that the other party caused your car accident through their negligence. Top tips:

    • Keep a pen and paper on you in case you need to suddenly take someone’s details;
    • Make a note on your phone. We advise sending this as an email to yourself to be sure;
    • It is a legal requirement for whoever is involved in a car crash to exchange their details;
    • Take photos. The scene might be very different a few months later, so it is essential that you try and record the scene as it was at the time of your car accident;
    • Write a detailed description of what happened. Often after a traumatic event we want to forget, but this can hamper the compensation claim down the line;
    • Make a note of any car registration plates, the address of the road and the time of the accident; and
    • See a doctor as soon as you can. Any medical evidence will be very useful in bringing a compensation claim that is successful.

    Remember, you have the right not to be impacted by someone else’s negligent actions. Making a claim for compensation is part of you standing up for your right not to damaged. You might well need extensive support from medical professionals after your injury from a car accident, and it is important that you have the financial support to get your life back on the road.
