    Lawyer in Sittingbourne


    Your chances of being involved in a road traffic accident in the UK are pretty high. While Britain has one of the best records for road safety, accidents happen all the time. It pays to have a good understanding of the steps you would need to take immediately after a road traffic accident in Sittingbourne.

    Actions to take following a road traffic accident

    It is common to enter into a state of shock following a road traffic accident. However, you must stop in a safe place, take a moment to collect your thoughts and get out of your vehicle to exchange names, addresses and vehicle registration numbers with the other party. If you fail to fulfil your responsibilities, you may face fines for failing to stop and/or failing to report your accident. The penalties for each of these offences includes a maximum fine of £5,000 and five to ten penalty points. The court also has the power to disqualify you from driving and is likely to do so if you commit both of these offences at the same time.

    If you are fit to do so, you should stay at the accident scene and collect as much evidence as you can. This information may include:

    • The names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident
    • Detailed sketches of the accident scene
    • Photos of the accident scene and the damage caused to the vehicles involved

    The evidence you gather will prove extremely valuable if you decide to make a compensation claim through an accident lawyer in Sittingbourne. Accident Advice Helpline is able to offer expert advice with over a decade of experience.
