What to do as the victim of a road accident in Newham
- Get yourself and any passengers to safety and out of the path of traffic, if at all possible.
- If people are badly injured, cover them for warmth, but don’t try to move them if you think they have spinal or head injuries.
- Call the emergency services immediately. The police must attend the scene if there are injuries.
- Take photos of the position of vehicles and road conditions, if you are able to do so.
- Exchange details of insurance companies with the other drivers involved.
- Make a statement to the police if required to do so.
Why you should seek compensation
Injury and incapacity from a road traffic accident can have serious consequences. Even if you recover from your accident reasonably quickly, and you make a full recovery, you could end up seriously out of pocket. Extra medical bills, paying out for treatments and therapies, losing income can all drain your cash resources. Besides, worry over finances is bad for your recovery. If you are only expected to make a partial recovery, the court will assess your future needs and make your award accordingly. Let your claim expert deal with the legal side, and do our best to win you the compensation you need and deserve. Call us now. An enquiry costs you nothing, but will help to put your mind at rest.
