Surrey Heath Accident


What to do after your Surrey Heath accident

My advice to anyone undergoing any sort of trauma, big or small, is to have a bath and a cup of tea, though sadly that doesn’t solve everything! There are several other things you can do after being involved in a Surrey Heath accident, which may be more time-consuming and less enjoyable than a soak in the tub, but will help your solicitor make the best of any compensation claim you may wish to make following your ordeal.

Helping your claim

  • Check if the circumstances of your Surrey Heath accident mean that you are entitled to compensation. To find out, you can either call our helpline on 0800 689 500 and talk through the details of your accident with one of our advisors, or use the compensation calculator online at
  • If there were witnesses to your Surrey Heath accident, hopefully you got their contact details. If you didn’t, see if you can find out who they were and if they would be willing to provide a short statement describing the circumstances of your accident.
  • Write a brief account of your Surrey Heath accident while all the details are fresh in your mind; include anything you can remember which may be relevant. As you recover from your injuries, add to this account, outlining the inconvenience your injury or illness is causing you.
  • Take pictures of anything you can that is related to your accident. These could be photos of visible injuries, the damage to your car, the scene of your accident — anything you can think of. Pictures these days are free to take!
  • If you have any reason to suspect that a law may have been broken, make sure that you report the accident to the police.
  • If a council, employer, or business was responsible for your Surrey Heath accident, write a formal letter of complaint. If you are unsure who was responsible for your ordeal, do a little investigating; it shouldn’t be too hard to find this out. One of our advisors may be able to help you with this.
  • Keep track of what your accident is costing you. List any financial costs or losses, and please make sure that you keep receipts, payslips, and bank statements that corroborate what you put on this list. You may well have had to replace the expensive phone that was damaged during your accident, but you will have to prove this. If you are unsure if an item belongs on your claim, add it to the list — a solicitor will be able to tell you if you can claim for it or not.
  • Wait before claiming, so you are very clear about the full extent of your injury and the impact that it had on your life and finances. You cannot go back for more compensation later!
