Helpful road accident claims advice in Nuneaton and Bedworth
Every year, it is believed that there are approximately ten million road traffic accidents in the UK. This is a startling figure. However, if there is some good news, it is that most of them are not serious. Either way, if you have been injured as the result of a road traffic accident that was not your fault you will be entitled to compensation and this is what you should do about it.
- See a doctor – It does not matter how minor your injuries may appear, or how much you want to avoid the hospital, it is vital to see a doctor if you want to have any chance of receiving a payout. This is because the doctor’s medical report will serve as proof to the injuries you have sustained and it will be used to determine how much money you are going to receive. Without it, there is nothing to go off, so it is impossible to build a strong case.
- Contact details – When you have been involved in a road traffic accident, it is a good idea to try and get the contact details of anyone that witnessed this. Witness statements can help to strengthen cases. Of course, you should also get the contact information of the person that is responsible for your suffering. This should include their name, telephone number, address and the details of their insurer. If you are able to, you should also make a note of their vehicle’s make, model and registration number.
- Keep proof of costs – Often, when someone has been involved in an accident they suffer many additional costs as a result. This could be prescription expenses, the cost of parking at the hospital, loss of earnings and such like. The good news is that you will be able to claim for these as special damages, but you will need to retain proof.
