South Derbyshire is a local government district in the county of Derbyshire in England.
Road traffic accidents in South Derbyshire happen in the same ways as they do in other parts of the country. They may involve pedestrians who have been injured in a hit and run incident while attempting to cross the road, or perhaps a vehicle swerves to avoid a stray dog and crashes into a lamppost.
No matter how your accident occurred, if you were involved in road traffic accidents in South Derbyshire that was not your fault, see what you can do about it with Accident Advice Helpline by your side.
Dealing with road traffic accidents in South Derbyshire
If road traffic accidents in South Derbyshire or anywhere in the country involve a motorised vehicle, the driver is obligated to get out of his or her vehicle or off a motorbike, and find out if anyone has been hurt. If someone has been injured in a road traffic accident, the police must be called. They will, after conducting an investigation, compile a report that is necessary if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Of course if people are injured in road traffic accidents, anywhere in the country, an ambulance should also be called to the accident scene. In order to file a personal injury compensation claim, you need to have a copy of the medical report that shows that you received medical attention for your injuries soon after the accident occurred.
What must I prove to make a claim?
In order to file a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove both that you were not to blame for the accident and that another person was to blame for it.
If you have photographs of the scene of the accident and of your injuries, these may be used as supporting evidence for your claim. You should also try to get the other driver’s details if possible, and the contact details of anyone that witnessed the accident.
