A road traffic accident in the Welwyn Hatfield area that was not your fault is a minor inconvenience. On the other hand, if you are badly injured in that accident it is a lot more than that! It is now a potential Welwyn Hatfield road traffic crash claim! Here we explain how you can start a personal injury claim after your accident.
Starting your Welwyn Hatfield road traffic crash claim
Firstly make sure that someone else (probably another driver) was at fault for the accident and that you can prove this. The best evidence is a police report so make sure that the police are called to the scene of the accident. They often arrive with the ambulance. Other forms of evidence can be witness statements, your own account of what happened and photographs. If you are too badly injured to collect witness contact details and take photographs at the scene you should ask someone else to do it for you.
Secondly, make sure that you get some medical attention for your injures. Obviously this is already in hand if an ambulance is attending the scene. However, people are not always so badly injured that they need to call an ambulance and none of us want to waste the time of the ambulance service. For this reason many people make their own way to the local Accident and Emergency Department. Some even visit their own family doctor. When you consult a doctor for your injuries they will make medical notes and these can act as evidence that you were injured in the accident.
