    Road accident claims in Cotswold


    After you have had a road accident, the first thing that you should be doing is ensuring that you and anyone in your vehicle is safe and is not going to be injured any worse. This means getting away from the scene to a safe distance, and calling the emergency services so that they can take over.

    However, once you know that everyone is safe in your road accident there are practical issues that need to be addressed, and which you will need to start taking care of at the scene no matter how shaken up everyone may be. If you want to claim on insurance or make road accident claims in Cotswold later on, you will need to deal with these practical issues right away.

    Trade details with the other driver

    Simply for insurance purposes you should exchange your personal details, registration number and so on with the person that you have been involved in the accident with. Do try not to let this become an argument, even though tensions will be running high. You should avoid placing blame or taking the blame in order to settle the situation, and just be professional in handing over your details.

    Give a statement

    You need to call the police to the scene so that they can compile a police report which may be necessary to help you to make your compensation claim and also for insurance purposes. To ensure that everything comes together well when you are making your claims, try to be as detailed as possible when giving your statement, and mention everything that you saw and anything that you suspect happened so that the police can investigate thoroughly. You may also want to go home and write out your own account of events as well.
