If you’ve been involved in an accident in Woolwich within the last three years through no fault of your own, the good news is that you can make a personal injury claim for compensation. These are generally the easiest kinds of claims to make.
Tips for making a claim
Here are some of the things you need to do if you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident and are looking to claim compensation for your injuries:
- Clearly, you need to seek the medical attention you need;
- Injuries and accidents need to be reported to the police;
- Take down the names of anyone who has witnessed the incident;
- Make a note to yourself of what happened, so you have a written record;
- Tell your insurer about what has happened;
- Take photos of the damaged vehicle; and
- Accept no compensation offers until you have spoken to a solicitor.
Finally, while you may well be feeling upset, and that’s understandable, it helps for many different reasons if you can stay calm at all times, however challenging that may be to do.
