    Personal injury accident compensation in Somerset


    Accidents can cause panic like nothing else. Even in the midst of the most serious incident, it is important to calm yourself down and take several deep breaths. Panicking only makes things worse and can cause you to forget important details. You may not remember to take photos of the accident scene or note down the names of eyewitnesses, but when you come to make a claim for personal injury accident compensation in Somerset, you will need this information.

    Prepare yourself for the aftermath of an accident in Somerset

    If you are ever involved in an accident, it may be helpful for you to break your response in two parts: steps to take immediately after and steps to take in the following days and weeks.

    Right after an accident happens, you should:

    • Notify someone in a position of authority
    • Create an accident report
    • Note down the details of eyewitnesses
    • Take photographs of the accident scene
    • Seek medical attention

    In the following days and weeks, you should:

    • Follow your doctor’s orders
    • Inform your employer if you need to take time off work
    • Keep track of any expenses you incur as a result of your accident
    • Note down the details of any conversations you have regarding your accident
