Your legal obligations…
First and foremost, there are some things you’re required to do by law, and the first of these is quite simple: stop! That’s right – you must stop at the scene of the accident, if there is any damage to any motor vehicles or property, and if anyone is injured.
You also have to ensure that you exchange your contact and insurance details with the other driver. Get their name, address, and the name of their insurance company!
It’s probably a good idea for the police to be involved, too, if there’s any injury or damage – and especially if the collision has caused an obstruction in the road. An ambulance might also be needed.
Road traffic accidents in Dumfries
You should get the contact details of any witnesses to the accident, too. Their account of what happened could prove valuable to you, not only for your usual insurance claim, but also if you decide to claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline.
Gather photographic evidence, too. This will enable you to capture the conditions at the time of the accident – the light, whether the road surface was wet or dry, the position of the vehicles, and the damage to your vehicle. Get your mobile out and take some snaps!
