Criteria for filing a Swindon vehicle collison claim
If you have been injured in an accident in Swindon or if you live in Swindon, you could be entitled to make a road traffic accident claim. There are several points that you could need to prove:-
- You were in no way to blame for your accident;
- Another person was totally to blame for the accident:
- You received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you possibly could; and
- The police investigated the causes of the accident.
The medical report
Your medical report will give details regarding your injuries and your doctor may be required to say when (ever) you are expected to be fully recovered from them. This report will be needed if you are to file a Swindon vehicle collision claim. You may also have to undergo a further medical examination as sometimes a second opinion will be required.
The police report
When anyone is injured in an accident on our roads and motorised vehicles were involved, the police must be informed of the accident. Police investigators will carry out an investigation into the reasons and causes of the accident and eventually, on completion of investigations, they will write an accident report. This report can be very useful as evidence if you file a personal injury compensation claim.
Time limits for making claims

There are some claim times that vary from this, such as if you were under a8 at the the time of the accident, or you are suffering from an industrial illness.To find out exactly how long you have to file yor particular claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
