Steps to take after a road traffic accident
If you have had a serious road traffic accident then the first couple of days will be a blur, dealing with any injuries you have sustained, speaking to the police and coming to terms with what happened. After the first few days have passed, though, it is time to start thinking about the practical issues involved with having an accident. You will want to get your life back to normal as soon as you can, so that you can start to move forward. When you need a law firm in Troedyrhiw to help you claim compensation, Accident Advice Helpline will be glad to assist you.
Contact your insurer: One of the first things you should do after an accident is to contact your insurer and let them know that you have had an accident, what the damage is and who the accident was the fault of.
You will need to contact your insurer anyway to let them know if an accident was your fault, as the other driver may be making a claim on your insurance. Speaking to your insurer quickly will also help you to get your car fixed right away.
Speak to your doctor: Even if your injuries have been dealt with, speaking to your doctor will help you to get the medical care you need in the weeks and months that follow your injury. This ensures that you can always get repeat prescriptions and that you are put forward for counselling if you both feel that this would be beneficial to your healing process.
Speak to your employer: You will want to let your employer know as soon as possible what has happened and how long it may take for you to come back to work. It is important that your employer has this information so that they can put back-up plans into place and start processing your sick leave and sick pay.
