    Whiplash injury in Alford

    If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Alford or any other injury as the result of a car accident, you will be able to claim on your insurance or the insurance of the other driver, depending on whose fault the accident was. If the accident was the fault of the other driver, you may also be able to claim compensation back for your whiplash injury in Alford, if you can find good solicitors to handle your case.

    Get evidence at the scene

    Whether you feel that the accident was your fault or the fault of the other driver, you should always get evidence at the scene which can be used in your claim. Even if the accident was your fault, you may be able to get out of paying for injuries or damage which has not occurred as part of your accident if you get photographs of both your car and the other person’s car there and then. You can also ask passers by to stand as witnesses for you, and take their details.

    Exchange information there and then

    Before you leave the scene, even if the police has a report of everyone’s details, it is important that you exchange insurance information and personal details with the other driver. If you do not obtain this information it can make an insurance claim take much longer to process, and may make it impossible for you to start making a compensation claim if you want to. The best way to approach this is to go to the other driver with your own information, as offering first will make it less likely that they will feel comfortable to hold back their own information.

    Use injury lawyers to claim for whiplash injuries in Alford

    The best way to avoid yourself getting into disagreements after an accident is to use experienced injury solicitors who are able to handle your case for you, and know the law well enough to process the claim easily. You can find good injury lawyers to process your whiplash injury in Alford at Accident Advice Helpline. Just call the helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile to speak to the friendly, helpful team, who will be able to put together a strong case for compensation on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis.

    Get official back up

    You can get official reports to back up your claim by approaching the police to make a police report at the scene, and your doctor to get a medical assessment after the accident. It is very difficult for the other driver to argue against anything which has been noted down in an official report, and this will back up your insurance and compensation claims. You should also keep receipts from mechanics to prove the extent of the damage to your car.
