Home to one of the largest leisure piers to exist in the world, Southend-on-Sea is a well known tourist destination. As with any busy tourist areas, it is important to take due care and attention, especially on the roads. Car drivers should always ensure they pay attention to the road and drive within the speed limit at all times. Similarly, pedestrians should take care when crossing the road, and use crossing wherever possible. The failure to do this can result in needless accidents, and quite often, Southend-on-Sea car accident claims.
After the Accident
Most of us, fortunately, are not familiar with car accidents and as a result, will have no knowledge about how to behave after such an incident. If you have been involved in a car accident, the first step to take is to find out if you need any medical attention and the next is to call the police and ensure they get a thorough report of the incident. The report will contain vital details which will help if you decide to make a claim for compensation.
In addition to a police report, there are other forms of evidence you may need for making your Southend-on-Sea car accident claims. It will be helpful if you have any other witnesses to the scene of the crime, evidence of any medical attention you have received and photographs of the incident. The more evidence you have, the greater your chance of success with your compensation claim.

After you have gathered as much evidence as possible, it is time to make your claim.
