Been in A Car Accident? An Injury Solicitor Marlborough Could Help!
It can be easy to assume that it won’t happen to you, however as much as we don’t want to think about it – car accidents can happen to anyone at anytime. Of course there are safety measures you can take to make sure that you are not injured – driving safely, sticking to the speed limit, wearing a seat belt etc. However, it is also a good idea to know what you would do should the worst happen.
One thing that is handy to know is that after an accident, if you contact an injury solicitor in Marlborough, then they can sometimes help you claim compensation for the accident you have been involved in.
During An Accident
If you have been involved in an accident then the first thing you need to understand is that you have a legal obligation to stop. You should make sure everyone is OK and swap details with anyone that you may need to swap details with.
If anyone needs medical assistance then of course you’ll need to contact 999 and get someone out to you. Try and check vehicles and make sure that everyone is OK – although you should do all of this without putting yourself at risk!
If anyone is in shock or unsure what to do then get them to sit out of the way of traffic. Where possible, get them to have a blanket or jacket around them, because they will be in shock but unable to feel that they are getting cold. Reassure them that everything will be alright and that help is on its way.
Once all this is done and the time is right, take steps to swap contact details with people. It is a good idea at this stage to get the contact details of anyone who witnessed the accident – in case you need to call upon this at a later date.
If you can, then take photos of the accident scene and any damage that has been caused to your vehicle, in case you need this another time too.
