Over the Christmas and New Year period particularly but also at other times, police all over the country step up their patrols in their efforts to attempt to prevent people drinking and driving and having accidents. Their message is clear, “Don’t drink and drive”. They are also campaigning to alert drivers to the dangers of using their mobile devices while driving. These are just the sorts of things that cause innocent people to be injured, and some of them will make a Leeds road traffic accident claim.
Leeds road traffic accident claim
You may not be eligible to make a Leeds road traffic accident claim if you had been drinking before your accident, or maybe texting on your phone, as you have to be able to prove that you were not to blame for the incident in which you were injured. You also have to prove that another person was responsible for your accident, and to do this you may need help from an expert road traffic accident solicitor. If you need one to advise you, then call us at Accident Advice Helpline. Our in-house legal experts all work on a no-win, no-fee* basis and have the expertise you need on your side of a claim.
If you suffered injuries in a road traffic accident, the police and an ambulance crew should have been called to the scene of the accident. To make a Leeds road traffic accident claim, or any other personal injury compensation claim, you will need the police accident report which officers will write after concluding their investigations into the reasons for the accident.
When you file a Leeds road traffic accident claim, you also need your medical report as this will help to decide on the amount of compensation you could be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused you by your injuries. Sometimes, an independent medical assessment is needed, but this is nothing to worry about as it may strengthen your claim.
