    Mountain Ash car accident


    Knowing what to do immediately after you’re involved in a Mountain Ash car accident is critically important. It can determine how quickly and easily the aftermath is managed and how speedily you can get your car back on the road again. It can also help to deal with any casualties, and prepare things if you’ll be making a claim for compensation if you’ve been injured, and the accident wasn’t your fault.

    You must stop, following a car accident

    The first thing is that immediately after a car accident, you must stop. It is an offence under the Road Traffic Act not to do so. Ensure you switch your car engine off and activate your hazard lights to warn any other road users of the accident.

    Calling the police and an ambulance if necessary

    If anyone is injured, or one of the vehicles is blocking the road, you should immediately summon the police, and if necessary, an ambulance.

    You must notify the police within 24 hours

    Swap names and insurance details with any other driver involved. Do not say sorry, or indicate you accept any blame until later, if appropriate, once you know precisely what has happened. Car accidents should be reported to the police within 24 hours. If you do not do so you may be liable to prosecution, resulting in a fine, penalty points, or possibly even disqualification.

    Things to make a note of

    It’s important to jot down a few facts and figures. It will help you later when you come to formulate any claim, either on your car insurance, or a claim for personal injury compensation, if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own.

    • Make a note of the registration numbers of all vehicles involved
    • Make a note of the date and time of the accident
    • Compile a rough sketch showing the positions of the vehicles involved in the accident
    • Make a note about the weather conditions and any other conditions, i.e. the surface of the road,the local lighting;  anything that may have a bearing
    • Make a note of the contact details of any witnesses and the names and warrant numbers of any police who arrived at the scene
    • Make a note of any damages to the vehicles and personal injuries to anyone involved in the accident
    • Take photographs if you are able to
