    Road Traffic Accident in Grangemouth

    When road traffic accidents in Grangemouth happen, there are certain things you need to do at the scene in order to fulfil your legal obligations – but also because these things will be useful in the event that you decide to claim compensation.

    What to do at the scene of a road traffic accidents in Grangemouth

    An absolute must at any road traffic accident scene is that you stay there. Any drivers involved must remain there, at the scene, and give their personal details to anyone who may need them. This means the other drivers involved, first and foremost – so make sure you get the name, address, and insurance details of the other driver involved in the accident.

    You should also notify the police, if necessary. If anyone is injured or there is any property damage or vehicle damage – and especially if an obstruction is being caused by the vehicles – then the police should be involved.

    Besides the legally required actions…

    Make sure you gather names and contact numbers for any witnesses to the accident.  You may be fortunate, in that someone, or several people, saw what happened and are willing to make a statement. This could really help you in proving that the accident was the fault of the other driver.

    Photographic evidence is also useful. Most mobile phones have cameras, and these cameras are perfectly capable of taking a very good photograph, so make sure you use it if you have one! Capture the damage to your vehicle, the damage to any street furniture or property and the road conditions. Later on, take photographs of any injuries you have, too.
