    Your checklist of things that need to be done after an accident

    After an accident, it can seem like you have a never-ending list of things that need to be taken care. This can really take its toll on you, and leave you feeling stressed out and anxious. The best approach here is to get to grips with what exactly you need to do. In this article, we explain some of the things that need your attention during this time, and share information on working with an injury lawyer in Babergh.

    Contact your insurance provider

    So many people don’t realise that even if the accident wasn’t their fault, they still need to contact their insurance provider. The advisors will be able to tell you about how the incident might have an impact on your policy, and anything that they recommend you do in terms of repairs for your vehicle. It’s important that you get this ticked off your list as quickly as possible.

    Contact an injury lawyer in Babergh

    If the accident that you were involved in happened in the past three years, and it wasn’t your fault, you might be able to make a claim for compensation. This can help you to cover the expenses that often come as a result of an accident, like medicines and prescriptions, and travel to hospital and GP appointments. To make a claim, you’ll need to contact an injury lawyer to represent you. It is also important that you have been seen by a medical professional.  Their findings are necessary to validate your injuries.

    Stay calm and focused

    There’s a tendency to get stressed out, though this should be avoided at all costs. There is plenty of help available out there, so make sure that you seek it out and use it if you feel like you need a little extra support. Your GP is often a great place to start, and they will be able to point you in the direction of any more specialist assistance that you may need whilst you recover from your accident. Accident Advice Helpline can help, and for more information, you can call 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. If you’d prefer you can complete the 30-second test on the website.

    Follow this advice after an accident, and it can be a lot easier to manage than you first think. Just take each day as it comes!
