Penicuik Car Accident Claims


How to act when someone else was at fault for an accident, and when to make Penicuik car accident claims

If you are involved in any accident, it is normal to feel shocked, frightened and angry in the moments after the accident. During this time, sadly, it is also important that you are able to control yourself around the police and the other party or you risk making the situation that much worse, or causing more injuries.

If you ended up getting into an argument or a fight with the other driver, this could have serious repercussions for you in the future, including you having to pay out on Penicuik car accident claims, or getting arrested for causing a scene after the accident. Here are some ways to handle yourself when another person has caused an accident.

  • Stay calm. The worst thing that you can do is to start placing blame or to get angry with this person about the accident. If you are angry or stressed then you are also less likely to be able to handle the situation with the police and other people, making it much more difficult to get the result you want in the future.
  • Don’t speak to the other person. If the accident was serious enough, police and the ambulance service will attend the scene. In this case there is no need for you to speak to the other person about the accident at all, meaning that you won’t have to get angry or place any blame at their feet.
  • Don’t apologise. Sometimes, when in shock, people will apologise for the situation even if they are aware that they are to blame. If you are noticed to have been apologetic then you may find it hard later on to prove that the other person was to blame for the accident, as apologising tends to indicate that you were at fault.
  • Be pleasant. Even if the other person was clearly at fault, they are likely to be shocked and upset, and it will be better for everyone if you act with patience and politeness if you must deal with them.

You will be able to make Penicuik car accident claims as long as you can prove that your accident was caused by another person.
