If you’re a driver and you’ve recently been involved in an accident, you may have been deemed not at fault for what happened. If this is the case, you may be entitled to claim compensation for any injuries you sustained as a result.
In these cases, compensation is usually paid by the insurance company of the other driver involved in the crash. However, it sometimes happens that accidents are undervalued by insurers which could see you get less than you deserve. Some drivers aren’t even insured at all! This is where a personal injury specialist like Accident Advice Helpline comes in. We’re the guys to find you an injury lawyer Bridgwater with the expertise to handle your claim.
So you’ve been involved in an accident. What do you do now?
If you’re unlucky enough to be involved in an accident, you should first check if you or anyone who may be around you is injured; call an ambulance and the police. It’s also helpful to take the contact details of the other driver, plus the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses who may have seen what happened. Should the driver attempt to leave the scene without passing on the required information, call the police.
If by any chance the person who was driving the other car is not the owner, you should also take down the details of the person who is. Make a note of the make, model number and registration too.
It’s also a good idea to note any adverse road or weather conditions that may have contributed to the accident, and take photos that will support your claims. Also photograph any damage that has been caused to your vehicle, and any injuries you sustained if possible.
