Derby is situated in the East Midlands in England and has quite a large population, with plenty of entertainment and good transport links. That being said, many people still choose to drive in the area and there have been a number of road traffic accidents reported this year.
If you have been injured in an accident and it was the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to road traffic accident compensation in Derby. If this is the case, you will need to start the process of making a claim. There are various types of evidence which be helpful as part of your claim, including:
It is important to seek medical attention after an accident, even if there are no visible signs of injury. The doctor will be able to undertake a thorough examination to ensure there are no internal injuries. Medical records can also be used as evidence as part of your claim for compensation and you will need to have received medical treatment for your injuries before you are able to obtain compensation.
The police will always visit the scene of a road traffic accident and will complete a police report on their findings. This can also be used as part of the evidence you provide to support your case.
It will be useful to take photographs at the scene of the incident, as these can help as evidence as part of your claim for compensation. Of course, taking photographs won’t be at the forefront of your mind after an accident, but these can prove to be very useful.
If anyone has witnessed the accident, it is worthwhile asking them for some support with your claim. The more witnesses you have, the better your chances of a successful claim.
