Injury lawyers in Edzell
Were you injured in a road traffic accident that was caused by someone else? Road traffic accidents happen every day in the UK and can result from carelessness, negligence or dangerous driving. Pedestrians, passengers and cyclists can be injured as well as car drivers.
Although car accidents have fallen in the UK due to improved road maintenance and public awareness campaigns, accidents regularly happen on the roads. Even if you’re a careful road user, you can’t always mitigate for other people.
Accidents can be caused by careless driving, tiredness, using a mobile device, speeding, drunk driving, and a whole host of other reasons.
What to do if you were in an accident
The first thing you need to do is look after your health. If the injury was serious, get to a local hospital or call an ambulance. If the accident wasn’t serious enough to go to the hospital you then need to decide if you’re going to involve the police. If you do, you’ll get a crime report number which you should keep.
If possible, swap insurance details with the driver of the other vehicle. Gathering evidence is important if you want to make a claim – injury lawyers in Edzell will look at the balance of evidence you have to prove the other person’s culpability, and that could determine how much compensation you receive.
Most people have camera-equipped smartphones these days, so take a picture of the scene. If it’s possible, get witness statements or contact details from other people who were involved or passing by.
