Making a road traffic accident claim in Dundee City can be difficult and time-consuming, but as with so many things in life, it’s all about getting the right help and assistance. Accident Advice Helpline is a reputable firm you can turn to for help and support. Here we offer some advice about what you should bear in mind after an accident.
Road traffic accident claim in Dundee City
When you’re in an accident with any driver you should start by taking their insurance details. By law, we are all required to hold third party driving insurance. This covers us for any damage or injury which we cause to other road users. If, by some chance, you’re hit by a driver who does not have this insurance it may be more difficult to get the costs of repairs and injuries paid for. However, there are other forms of help available for people who have been injured by an uninsured driver, which could issue compensation.
Who is to blame?
Sorting out who is at fault for an accident can be a tricky business. Nobody likes to accept the blame at the best of times and if there are substantial sums of money involved in a road traffic accident claim in Dundee City it can be even more difficult. This is why it’s important to have evidence.
If you take a case to court, you will be required to prove – to the full satisfaction of the court – that you were not at fault, and that the other side was to blame. The onus is on you to demonstrate your case and if there’s any doubt at all, the decision must go in favour of the other side.
The best source of evidence is witnesses. If people saw the accident happen, they can do a lot to support your case. Try to get their contact details and pass these on to your lawyer. He or she can then contact them at a later date.
