What should you do following a road accident?
The first and most important thing is to get help. If you or anyone else involved are in need of urgent medical attention, then call for an ambulance straight away. Even if you do not need to go to a hospital, you should see your own GP as soon as possible; many injuries take some time to display themselves.
If you do not need to call the police to the scene, you must report the accident to your local police station within twenty four hours. This is a legal requirement and failure to do so may jeopardise any claim you may make in the future.
Obtain the insurance details of the other party involved and call your insurance company straight away with details of the accident.
If there are witnesses to the accident then take their contact details as these may be needed later.
