Solicitors in Brecon are available to process your road accident claim now, but who can claim compensation after a car crash? Read on to find out more about the process.
Claiming: who is eligible?
If you have sustained personal injury as a result of an accident that was another driver’s fault, then you could be eligible to claim compensation through solicitors in Brecon.
For example, you are sitting at some traffic lights which are on red. Someone behind you sets off, smashing into your rear bumper. Your car is damaged. You have to take it to the garage for repairs, but you also end up with whiplash as a result of the impact.
In this case, you could claim compensation through solicitors in Brecon from the driver of the other vehicle. The amount you receive would pay you for the accident and distress, plus any expenses you incur as a result of the accident (such as the cost of repairs).
What to do if you are in a road accident
First of all, quite naturally you will want to make sure that everyone – yourself included – is okay. If anyone is injured, it will be a good idea to call an ambulance, and the police will definitely have to be called. This applies where there is any property damage, too.
Secondly, get the other driver’s contact details. Their name, address and insurer are essential pieces of information. You should also gather witnesses’ contact details. Car accidents tend to be seen by passersby, whether pedestrians or motorists, and they could be of help to you if you decide to make a claim for compensation later.
Why you should claim compensation via solicitors in Brecon
Following an accident, there can be a great deal of pain and suffering from the injury, which extends to having to take time off work, needing to hire help to do the household chores, and requiring childcare services. You may also have prescription charges to pay, as well as the cost of needing taxis to get around as you’re unable to drive.
Why suffer the financial hardship associated with this when the accident was not your fault? Claiming will help you to get your life back on track and alleviate some anxiety.
