Injury solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch give their top tips on what to do after an accident
One of the most important things to remember is to remain calm and not panic. You could aggravate an injury if you panic. Also, if you are calm you are more likely to handle the situation with care and will be thinking logically. Being angry and abusive will not help. You need to think clearly. Do not make accusations (or indeed, admit liability) and get upset — let injury solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch take care of things for you.
Get the details
Remember to keep a note of all the details relating to the accident. Take the details of the negligent party, any witnesses and the circumstances in which the accident occurred. Most people these days have a camera phone; if you have one, take some photographs of the accident and your injuries. Injury solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch will need this information if you decide to claim compensation.
Seek medical help
If you are seriously injured, have difficulty breathing or had been unconscious at any stage, then it is imperative that an ambulance is called straight away. Even if you feel you are not seriously injured, injuries such as internal bleeding may not show obvious symptoms. It is important you visit you GP or an accident and emergency department for assistance.
After your accident, keep a record of all expenses relating to your injuries. This can be loss of earnings, taxi receipts, receipts for medication and medical treatment. This additional expenditure by you may be taken into account by injury solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch when considering how much compensation you are entitled to receive.
