Road accident in West Midlands


What to do immediately after an accident

If you have had a road accident in West Midlands then there will be plenty of things running through your head in the immediate aftermath. It is most important that you get yourself and your passengers to safety, and get the emergency services out to help with both you and any other cars involved. But there are plenty of other things that you can be doing as well, immediately after your road accident in West Midlands, to help clear the situation up quickly.

  • Get to safety. The first thing you should always do is make sure that you and your passengers are safe, and out of the way of any potential danger. Move your car if you can, and if you can’t then get yourself and your passengers to the side of the road, away from the scene but still close enough to see when the emergency services arrive.
  • Speak to witnesses. It may be crucial at some point that you have a witness to back up your claim, so speak to anyone who is at the scene of the accident and get their contact information so that you can call on them when and if you need to.
  • Take photos. It may seem strange to take photographs of an accident but this is one of the ways that you will be able to prove what has happened to your car, what the scene looked like and even who was at fault.
  • Speak to police. A police report is also handy evidence for a compensation or insurance claim, and offers something official to back up your story.
