Are you eligible to file a Thanet vehicle collision claim?
Apart from proving that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, you must also be able to prove that someone else was responsible for it, perhaps because of their negligence or recklessness, if you wish to file a road traffic accident claim. You may need an expert road traffic accident lawyer to help you build a case to prove these things and so perhaps you should call us at Accident Advice Helpline for all the help and support you will need.
You would, no doubt, have received medical treatment for your injury as soon as possible after the accident. If you did not, then this might negatively affect your chances of making a Thanet vehicle collision claim for personal injury. Your medical report is necessary if you decide to make a claim.
A copy of the police accident report can also prove useful, as they have to investigate the causes of road traffic accidents and should have been called to the scene.
Travelling in icy conditions
Local authorities have an obligation to make roads in their area safe, which means that in wintry conditions when ice is expected, the gritters should have been sent out to grit the roads, especially in places where accidents are likely to occur in such conditions. If you have an accident because of black ice, and no other vehicle was involved, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury and damage to personal property against the local authority. Of course, to do this you would probably need an expert solicitor to help you.
