Traffic accident in Birmingham


Traffic accidents happen every day, in every part of the world, and they are always traumatic, frustrating, expensive and dangerous situations. If you have been involved in a traffic accident in Birmingham, you may be wondering what to do next. We have put together a few steps to help you cope with the immediate aftermath of an accident on the road.

What to do if you’ve been involved in a traffic accident in Birmingham

  1. Wait for the authorities to arrive
    It is illegal to leave the scene of a traffic accident, however minor. By rushing off before the police arrive, you could be turning an easily resolved situation into something more serious.
  2. See a doctor
    If you have been in a traffic accident in Birmingham, or anywhere else, your first reaction will probably be shock. Whiplash, bruising and some head injuries may not become apparent for hours after the accident has occurred. See your doctor to rule out serious injury and receive treatment for early symptoms of injury.
  3. Assess the damage
    Bodywork damage to your vehicle will be instantly noticeable – a dented fender, a few scratch marks or a broken window for instance. But inside the car, you may be dealing with some long-term and expensive engine problems. Take your car to a mechanic for a quick once-over to set your mind at ease. If major repair work is needed, get a couple of quotes first.
  4. Contact a lawyer
    Your insurance will probably cover any damage or medical expenses incurred as a result of your traffic accident in Birmingham. However, if the accident was not your fault, you may not wish to risk increasing your premiums by making an expensive claim. Speak to a lawyer for advice on how to successfully sue for compensation.
