    Road traffic accident compensation in County Durham


    County Durham is situated in the North East of England and has a fairly large population of approximately 902,500. There are various entertainment venues in County Durham, including Killhope Wheel and Hamsterley Forest. In a busy place like this, there is inevitably the risk of accidents occurring and in particular, road traffic accidents. If you find yourself the victim of an accident like this and it was caused by another party, you may be entitled to road traffic accident compensation in County Durham.

    What to Do

    If you think you may be entitled to make a claim, you need to make sure you have evidence to back this up. After such an incident, you should always attend the doctor to get an examination and make sure your health hasn’t suffered as a result of the accident. The doctor will also be able to provide medical records, which you can use as evidence to support your claim.

    Other Types of Evidence

    Some other useful types of evidence will include photographs at the scene of the incident, witness statements and police reports. The police will always attend accidents of this nature and will be able to provide you with a report, which will help with your road traffic accident compensation in County Durham. Witnesses may be a little trickier, but most people will be willing to help if they can. Witnesses are one of the most essential forms of evidence when it comes to proving you have a case for compensation.
