Take action after an accident

When you’re involved in an accident when you least expect it, you are usually pretty shaken. After all, it is a very traumatic experience. This makes staying focused really hard, but staying focused is extremely important because there are things you will need to do.

There are also things that you should do after the accident when the shock has passed like call a personal injury lawyer Southampton for professional advice on starting a compensation claim, but first things first.

Get professional help

This might seem like the obvious thing to do, but when involved in an accident, many people tend to panic or just freeze and shut down completely. It is imperative that you remember to call an ambulance and police no matter what happened and how bad it is.

You should also make sure that everyone is alright and give first aid if needed.

Gather evidence

After you’ve called for help and everyone is being taken care of, it is time to gather as much evidence as you possibly can. It is a good idea to take some photos and if you don’t have a camera, draw a sketch of what happened while the memory is still fresh in your head.

You should also gather the details of all eyewitnesses who saw the crash. The information you will need includes full name, address and phone number.The pictures and eyewitnesses will help you prove later that the accident wasn’t your fault.

You should also look around for cameras that might have captured the accident. Make sure you retrieve the footage by asking the owner of the camera. If you’re having problems getting the CCTV footage, you can later call a personal injury lawyer Southampton who will handle this for you.

Stay calm

After an accident things can get a little intense especially when it’s not your fault. Remember to stay calm and not get involved in arguments or fights. This will only make your situation worse later when claiming compensation. It will most likely be used against you in court.

Regardless of how mad you are, you should still make sure all parties involved in the accident are okay and do all you can to help if help is needed.
