Did you know that, if you are the victim of an accident that isn’t your fault, and you get injured, you could claim compensation?
This applies to road traffic accidents in East Kilbride, too – so if you’ve suffered injury as a result of one, you might be interested to know what to do next.
First things first: your health
Of course, by “what to do next”, we don’t mean at the scene of road traffic accidents in East Kilbride – it’s imperative that you ensure you fulfil your legal obligations, such as notifying the police and exchanging your contact and insurance details with other parties involved.
It’s also crucial that you get medical attention as soon as possible. Sometimes, road traffic accidents in East Kilbride cause injuries that need urgent attention in the casualty ward of the nearest hospital; other, less serious, injuries may require a visit to the doctor the following day, just to be on the safe side.
Once everything has settled down…
Only when it is safe to do so should you think about claiming compensation – and this means when you’re clear-headed and your pain is properly managed!
Let us tell you a little bit about why you should think about claiming, too. When you’re the victim of an accident that has caused you injuries, you might have to take time off work to recover – which can lead to a loss of wages.
On top of this, you might also have to pay for things that you wouldn’t normally need. Such things might be the services of a home help, or perhaps a childminder; then there are the prescriptions for your medication, which soon mount up, as do the costs for all those taxi journeys you’ve had to make while your car has been out of action (not that you could drive it anyway).
Claiming means that you could be awarded some money to wipe out these expenses and get your life back on track once again. Why not take that opportunity now and call Accident Advice Helpline?
