Road traffic accidents – what to do
If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in a road traffic accident (or collision as they are more commonly referred to these days) then you will already know it can be an exceptionally scary experience. This is why, when you are ready, our personal injury lawyer in Balfron will be on hand to help you win the financial compensation you deserve to help you recover from your ordeal.
If you have been in an accident then you might want to know what you should do to ensure that all the necessary steps are taken.
Firstly, you should get yourself to a place of safety. Do not stand in the road exchanging contact details with other parties involved. If you do not feel it is safe for you to move due to injury then arrange for an ambulance to be called and request that the Police are alerted.
If possible get the contact details of all those involved in the accident, including any other drivers, passengers, pedestrians and eye witnesses. If you are not able to do this yourself the Police will be taking the details and you can request these at a later stage.
Try to take photographs of the scene detailing where everyone was at the time of the accident. Your personal injury lawyer in Balfron will find this useful when helping argue your case that you were not at fault. If it is not possible to take photographs for any reason then it is just as helpful for you to make a sketch at the earliest possible opportunity.
You will need to seek medical advice if you have been injured and in time your personal injury lawyer in Balfron will need you to grant them access to your medical records. This is so your injuries can be assessed. You will also have to later visit an independent medical expert who will go through your injuries with you and write a report to determine how much compensation you could be entitled to.
To find out how much this amount could be you can take our 30 second test today. This will just be a guide as it cannot take everything into account without having access to all the information, but it is a good place to start. Your personal injury lawyer in Balfron will be able to give you more information on this as your case progresses.
There are strict time limits in place when making a claim, so call our personal injury lawyer in Balfron today to see if we can help you make a claim now.
