Nuneaton and Bedworth accident claims – three golden rules.
- Don’t panic. Take your time and have a think about your accident. Take a few hours to work out if it was caused by someone else. If you are still at the scene of the accident take a look around you. Are there any witnesses who could provide a statement which would confirm who was actually to blame. If your accident was a road traffic accident then this may be another driver. If your accident was at work then it may be your employer. Try to get some other evidence as well such as photographs. Even if you are not sure who caused the accident it is best to get the evidence so that you are able to make a claim in the future.
- Get some medical attention for your injuries. It is always best to get the more serious injuries assessed by a medical professional. They will be able to give you the best advice on how to manage the injury at home or will send you to a hospital if you need further tests such as x-rays or scans. The notes that you doctor makes at the time of your consultation will also serve as some evidence that you were actually hurt in the accident that was not your own fault. They will also give an indication of how severe your injuries are. Milder injuries will just have notes made at a doctor’s surgery whereas the more serious injuries may have notes made in an Accident and Emergency Department, a hospital ward or even an Intensive Care Unit.
