Do you know what to do after a road traffic accident in Ventnor?
When someone is involved in a road traffic accident in Ventnor, or anywhere else, they can often enter a state of shock. This means that they can find it hard to think properly or respond appropriately. When this type of incident occurs, the most important thing to do is to access medical help on behalf of everyone who has been affected.
In some cases, this may involve dialling 999 and requesting an ambulance. In addition to providing on the scene medical care, paramedics will also be able to transport people to hospital should they need to go.
Depending on the type of injuries you’ve sustained, you may be able to talk to other people who were involved or witnesses who saw the incident. If you are able to do this, you may want to get as much information as possible from them as they could be useful if you decide to make a compensation claim later.
If you have only suffered relatively minor injuries, you may feel well enough to drive after the incident, providing your vehicle is in a roadworthy condition. However, if you need to be taken to hospital, it is likely that the police will remove your car from the highway for the safety of other drivers.
Once you’ve obtained the medical treatment you require, you may be allowed to return home. Whilst most people are glad that they are able to return home, this doesn’t mean that you won’t need follow up treatment and you may have to return to the hospital for outpatient appointments.
Should you call injury solicitors after a road traffic accident in Ventnor?
As you begin to recover, you may start to consider making a compensation claim for the injuries you sustained in a road traffic accident in Ventnor. Despite your injuries, personal injury solicitors will only be able to help you to make a claim if the incident was caused by someone or something else.
If you, along with your injury solicitors, can show that you weren’t responsible for the incident, it’s likely that you will be able to make a claim for compensation. However, if you’ve never made a claim with injury solicitors before or you don’t know much about the claims process, you may want to find out more before you decide whether or not to go ahead with your claim.
