7 things you should do after an accident
Following an accident that was someone else’s fault, you might be considering making a claim for personal injury compensation. If so, any injury solicitor in Glamis will need information from you that they can use to help build a case. Here are the seven things you should do immediately following your accident:
Get medical care – it’s important that you assess the extent of your injuries. If they’re severe, you should consider calling an ambulance or going to the local accident and emergency department to receive medical treatment. Even if your injuries are minor, you should treat them in the appropriate way, and make sure to get an appointment with your GP as soon as you can. Their medical report will help in your case.
Swap insurance details – if you were in a road traffic accident, ensure that you swap personal details with the other driver(s), including insurance details. This will be useful later on.
Call the police – if that accident was serious or involved an element of crime, you should contact the police. They will attend the scene and investigate, and give you a crime report reference number. You should hold onto this, and give it to your injury solicitor in Glamis later.
Gather evidence – take photos of the scene with your smartphone, gather witness statements or contact details; anything that will help you to piece together events at a later date, and prove that you weren’t responsible.
Write down what happened – one good way of ensuring that your memory of the event stays fresh is to write down what happened. Do this as soon as possible after the accident, and try to be as comprehensive as possible. Once you start writing, you may be surprised at just how much information you recall.
Recover – this is the most important. If you need to take time off work, receive ongoing treatment, take medication and the like, make sure that you look after yourself, and give yourself plenty of time to recover.
