Have you been injured in a road traffic accident in Thurrock? If your answer to that question is ‘yes’ then you may be seriously considering making a Thurrock vehicle collision claim. However, in order to be eligible to make such a claim for personal injuries, you must be able to prove a few points.
Eligibility for filing a Thurrock vehicle collision claim
First of all, in order to be eligible to file a road traffic accident claim for personal injuries or damage to personal property, you have to be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident. Secondly (and by extension) you must prove that another person was responsible for it.
The police should have been called to the scene of the accident, as they have a duty to investigate the causes of road traffic accidents when people have been injured in them. They write an accident report when their investigation is over and you will need this if you are to file a Thurrock vehicle collision claim.
Your medical report is also necessary if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim, as part of the amount of compensation you could be awarded if your claim is successful will be based on this. You also need to demonstrate that you had medical treatment for your injuries after the accident and your medical report will show when you received treatment.
Road traffic accidents in Thurrock
Road traffic accidents happen in Thurrock, just like everywhere else in the UK, most of them caused by driver error of some sort. Many of the errors that cause road traffic accidents are because of carelessness or recklessness, and innocent victims are seriously injured in them.
Dangerous driving is a cause of many accidents, along with speeding, not obeying road signs, road rage and drink-driving. Police are also cracking down on drivers who use their mobile devices while driving as this causes accidents because of the lack of concentration on the road.
