    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Polesworth


    The roads are dangerous places, and accidents are unfortunately very common. If you happen to be unlucky enough to encounter a road traffic accident in Polesworth, you must fulfil a range of legal obligations.

    Your legal obligations following a road traffic accident in Polesworth

    In the event of a road traffic accident, your primary concern should be identifying the injured and protecting everyone’s health and safety. You should therefore:

    • Stop and check for causalities
      While your main concern may be the passengers in your own motor vehicle, you should take the time to check on the other parties involved. If you encounter an injured individual, you may find it necessary to call for emergency assistance.
    • Warn other motorists
      To warn oncoming motorists of the dangers posed by the accident scene, turn on your hazard lights. This is critical if the accident has occurred in an area where there are vast moving vehicles.

    Once you are satisfied that the injured individuals have received emergency medical assistance, you should:

    • Take photographs of the accident scene
      You should try to take as many photographs of the accident scene as possible. If you do not have a camera to hand, you should use the camera on your smart phone or tablet.
    • Document the incident in your own words
      In addition to taking photographs, you should also reconstruct the accident sequence on paper, including details such as the behaviour of your fellow motorists and the weather conditions at the time of the crash.

    Your right to personal injury compensation

    If you have sustained an injury in the road traffic accident, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Following an accident, the prospect of making a claim against another motorist may seem like a stressful and time consuming task.

    However, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you to make your claim.
