Perhaps it comes as no surprise then that accidents can occur and the innocent victims of accidents start to think about an Islington road traffic accident claim.
Starting an Islington road traffic accident claim
Accidents happen frequently on the busy roads of Islington, as they do in all built-up areas. They can involve cause nasty injuries to people who were not at fault for the accident at all. Some accidents can cause very serious injuries indeed. If a pedestrian is hit by a car or by a larger vehicle such as a bus then it is hardly surprising that they suffer serious injuries such as fractures and lacerations. If the driver of another vehicle was to blame then it is only fair that the injured person should receive some compensation. This is the purpose of an Islington road traffic accident claim.
However, if you were injured in an accident in Islington, the onus is on you to prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident, and to do this most people require some expert legal help. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have a highly skilled team of personal injury lawyers and we will set out to prove that your accident was the fault of another person.
After an accident involving motor vehicles, and when someone has been injured, the police must be called to the scene of the accident, as they are obliged to undertake an investigation into the causes of the accident. When they are satisfied that the investigation is at an end, they will write an accident report which you will need if you intend to pursue a claim for road traffic accident compensation.
Medical treatment and your claim
You should seek immediate medical treatment for your injuries, and, in order to make a successful personal injury claim, you will need your medical report. This will detail the extent of your injuries and it is on this that any compensation awarded for your pain, distress and suffering will be based. You may also be asked to attend one medical assessment appointment with a local doctor and we arrange all of that for you.
