    Road accident claims in West Bromwich


    After a road accident, either before you head home or just after you get back, you should sit down and write down as much as you can remember from the accident as possible.

    All of the information you can gather will be incredibly useful when it comes to making road accident claims in West Bromwich, talking to the police and otherwise dealing with the fallout from the accident.You will probably find it easier to write down the most information if you keep a notepad in the car and write it down as soon as possible, before you even leave the scene. Here are some of the things to note down.

    Basic details of the accident

    These basic details will include the time and date that the accident happened, as well as the exact address as close as you can work it out. Some places will be easier to gather the address than others, but as long as you can get down a postcode and address within the street this will come in useful.

    Personal details for everyone involved

    This will help you to make a compensation claim later on, claim on the other person’s insurance and report the accident to the police so that they can investigate. Take down details such as names and addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses, as well as registration details for the car.

    Damage caused by the accident

    If there is little time, you should note down the damage caused to your own vehicle first and take photographs if you can as this will be crucial to you getting the compensation that you deserve.

    However, if you do have time, noting the damage to the other person’s car may also be helpful, in case they try to claim further damage later on.
