    Road accident in Sunderland

    Making a successful compensation claim

    There are a few things you should be doing after any road accident in Sunderland to ensure that if you decide to make a compensation claim that your claim has a better chance of being successful. You need to remember to do some of these things immediately after your road accident in Sunderland so that all of the evidence is still there. After time you won’t be able to get the proof that you need that the accident was not your fault, or of the injuries you sustained, and this can mean that your claim does not go through.

    Take photos of everything

    Take photos of the scene of the accident, of your vehicle, of the other driver’s vehicle and of any injuries yourself and your passengers have sustained. If you are not sure whether you should take a picture of something do it anyway and leave it up to your solicitor to work out what you need and what you don’t.

    Write everything down

    As soon as you get home after your accident take the time to write down everything that happened exactly as you remember it. A compensation claim can take some time to go through and during this time the details may become fuzzy to you. Write them down so that you still have them when you need them.

    Get the police involved

    A police report which clearly puts you in the right will help your claim along a lot, and will give evidence for you that you deserve compensation from the other driver for your injuries. You should always make a police report after any accident, to make everything as official as you can.
