    Road accident claims in South Hams


    You should always call the police to the scene of a road accident, so that you have professionals working with you and the other driver to ensure that you are both safe and that the situation is resolved as quickly and cleanly as possible.

    If you want to make road accident claims in South Hams against the other driver because of your accident, the best way for you to do so is to use the police report in tandem with a medical assessment, to prove what happened in your accident and the damage that was sustained. Here are some of the other things that the police will do at the scene of your accident.

    Compile a police report

    A police report is a valuable piece of information for making compensation and insurance claims, but also simply to help them to investigate what happened and prosecute anyone who needs to be prosecuted. If you know that you were not at fault for your accident, a police report will only be of help to you.

    Close the roads

    Closing the roads means that no other vehicles are likely to get involved in your accident and make things even worse, or cause injuries that have not yet been sustained. It keeps everyone at the scene safe and ensures that you have the chance to deal with the situation without having to deal with traffic.

    Take your details

    Yours and the other driver’s personal and insurance details will be taken to make it easier to get the situation resolved for both of you, claim insurance and compensation and so on. These details will be added to the police report, which you can get a copy of as and when you need.
