    Road accident claims in Oxford


    After any serious road accident, you should sit down when you get home and write down a list of the things that happened, to help you to remember exactly what the finer details were of the accident.

    Remembering these details will help you to decide whether or not you want to make road accident claims in Oxford against the person that caused your accident, as well as helping you with things like insurance claims and speaking to the police. Although there may be a lot of other things for you to focus on immediately after your accident you should still try to write this list as soon as you can, and try to include:

    What you saw

    Even if you aren’t entirely sure of what you saw because of how fast everything went, you should write down as much as you can remember, and try to include all of the smaller details. This will include how fast you think the other car was going, any pedestrians and what they were doing, whether the car seemed to be struggling or not and so on.

    Details on the condition of the road

    Even if you think that it might impact your claim, you should mention everything you can think of about the condition of the road, including weather conditions, if there was any cracked or broken road which may have affected your vehicle, if it was dark or if any streetlights were broken and so on.

    What the other driver was doing

    Try to think of anything you can which will back up your claims that the other driver was at fault. Mention if they were driving aggressively or if they were speeding, if the driver was distracted, talking on a mobile phone, eating or smoking.
