    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Road traffic accidents are invariably traumatic, inconvenient and expensive. They can also be a nuisance to sort out. If you are involved in a road traffic accident, you must stay calm and composed at all times. If you fail to do so, you may forget to collect crucial evidence, jeopardising your chance of making a successful claim with solicitors in Winsford for your physical and emotional suffering.

    At the scene of an accident

    First, you should switch on your hazard lights and if it is safe for you to do so, get out of your car to check on everyone involved. If someone has sustained a serious injury, you should call 999 immediately and ask for professional assistance.

    Once you have checked on everyone involved, you should collect as much information as you can. You should ideally take the names, contact details and vehicle registration numbers of all the drivers involved in the accident. If you have a camera or smart phone to hand, you may also wish to take photos of the accident scene. Alternatively, you should try and produce a detailed sketch of the accident scene.

    Immediately after returning home from the scene of the accident

    As soon as you return home, you should create a written account of the details of your accident, noting down the following information:

    • The circumstances leading up to your accident, such as whether anyone was driving dangerously.
    • The weather, visibility and road conditions at the time of your accident.
    • The nature and severity of the injuries sustained by the people involved.
    • The severity of the damage sustained by the vehicles involved.

    If you wish to make a compensation claim, you will need to provide your solicitors in Winsford with all of the aforementioned details.
