Have you been injured in a road traffic collision?
With increasing amounts of traffic on the roads, it’s not surprising that collisions occur on an everyday basis. Unfortunately, people are regularly hurt because of accidents on the road and, in some cases, they can sustain extremely serious injuries.
Whilst this can be traumatic enough if the accident was unavoidable, the situation can be made even worse if the incident was preventable. If a road user wasn’t paying attention or was using a mobile phone at the time of the collision, for example, the incident may have been avoidable.
Although it’s easy to become distracted whilst on the road, it’s vital that drivers and motorcyclists remain vigilant at all times. Doing so could potentially prevent a serious accident or collision from occurring.
Are you looking for solicitors in Hailsham?
If you’ve been involved in a road traffic incident and you’re looking for solicitors in Hailsham, it’s likely that you want to make a personal injury compensation claim. Providing another road user was responsible for the incident and you weren’t at fault, solicitors in Hailsham may be able to help you take action.
Of course, if the person responsible denies their involvement, you and your solicitors in Hailsham may need to present evidence to the contrary. If you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle, for example, the footage could be used to show exactly how the incident occurred and who was at fault.
If you don’t have your own vehicle-mounted camera, there’s no need panic. There are many other forms of evidence which can be used to support your claim, such as accident reports, CCTV footage and witness statements.
Getting medical help
After a road traffic accident, it’s vital that you seek medical help. Whilst some injuries are apparent straight after a collision, this isn’t always the case. Simply returning home after an accident could increase the risk of injury complications occurring so it’s important to seek medical assistance as soon as you can.
In addition to this, you’ll need to have received medical treatment for your injuries if you plan on making a compensation claim with solicitors in Hailsham. If you think you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation and you want to find out more about taking legal action, why not contact us today?
