    Evidence needed to process van accident compensation claims in Three Rivers

    The moments following a car crash can be filled with shock and terror, and even anger and frustration.

    In these moments, it can be hard to remember to do a few very important things that could be helpful in the event you wish to pursue van accident compensation claims in Three Rivers. We have been helping accident victims for over fourteen years, and we know just how terrifying being in an accident can be. With that said, if at all possible, try to remember to do the following to give yourself the best chances of receiving compensation:

    Remain at the scene

    If you have had a relatively minor accident, it could be tempting to swap insurance information and just leave. However, it can often be the case that injuries sustained in such collisions, such as whiplash, only onset later on. This means you could feel OK and leave the scene, only to be faced with pain and inconvenience a few days later. With no police report or witness statements, it can be hard to pursue compensation although you may desperately need it.

    Report the accident

    Make sure you file a report with police if you have been in an accident. Even if a driver has caused the accident and fled the scene, you should still report the collision. The police findings can prove pivotal in these and other scenarios when it comes to claiming compensation.

    Take photographs

    If you have been in a crash, document it if at all possible with a smartphone. If you are unable to, or don’t have your phone with you, try to make a sketch that shows things like vehicle positioning. This can be really helpful when determining which driver was at fault.

    Make notes

    Jot down important information about the state of the roads, the weather, if the driver at fault was using a handheld or appeared intoxicated, along with anything else that could potentially be helpful to your solicitor. Witness statements and contact information can also be of use, as if the case does need to go to court, your case could rely on testimony from others supporting that you were not at fault.

    After you have been in an accident, with so many other things to think about, claiming compensation may be far from your mind. However, the sooner you begin a claim, the better the chances of details being fresh in your memory, and the higher the chances that witnesses will come forward if required. It also reduces the amount of time you have to wait to receive your compensation.
