You’re probably thinking about what an upheaval it has been. Your car is still in the garage, getting fixed – or maybe it was written off. Life, recently, has been an endless round of phone calls to service managers, insurance companies – and possibly even the police.
You’ve had to go to the doctor regularly, too, because you got injured in the accident.
Personal injury in a road accident
Having to visit the hospital after a road accident in Exeter is fairly common – broken bones, wounds and whiplash are all well-known personal injuries in car crashes.
Some people are unfortunate enough to be carried to hospital in an ambulance.
Whatever the injury is, you need to make sure that you have taken care of certain things when you have a road accident in Exeter.
What you should do if you have a road accident in Exeter
Safety first! Make sure you – and others – are all right. Get out of the way of the vehicle if at all possible. This is crucial if you are on a motorway or a busy A-road.
Call an ambulance and, if necessary, the police.
Begin to gather evidence! Contact details are vital. Get the other driver’s name, number and insurance details. Speak to witnesses and get their details, too.
Have you got a camera function on your phone? Get snapping. Take pictures of the damage to your vehicle, any damage to street furniture such as lampposts, and the road conditions. Make sure you stay safe, of course.
When you get home, take photos of your injuries. They will form part of the evidence for your compensation claim.
