    Whiplash injury in Alresford

    Making a car accident claim for a whiplash injury

    If you have a road accident and the accident was caused by another driver, you should be able to claim compensation for any injuries you have sustained, including a whiplash injury in Alresford.

    Making a compensation claim can be a long and stressful process, and it is not guaranteed to be successful, which is why many people avoid making a claim in the first place. However, if you are prepared and look to the right sources to make your claim, you should have a fulfilling and successful experience.

    Call the police

    Whilst still at the scene, you need to call the police to get a full police report of the accident. Even the most minor accidents need to be reported with the police, so it is worthwhile getting them to the scene so you can have a more thorough report of what has happened. Don’t call 999 if you feel that the accident wasn’t that serious, instead call your local police station and ask the other driver to stay at the scene until someone arrives.

    Get the details of the other driver

    You won’t be able to follow up on insurance or compensation if you don’t have the details of the other driver involved in the crash, so this is one of the first things you should be doing. Approach the other driver with your own details, to make them more likely to hand over theirs, and to make the situation feel less threatening. Don’t blame them or admit fault at this point, as you are just looking to get the details you need to make a claim if you need to.

    See your doctor about your whiplash injury in Alresford

    The best way to make a successful claim for a whiplash injury in Alresford is to have a medical report which proves that you sustained the injury, and that it was your road accident which caused it. Not only this but your doctor will be able to tell how serious your injury was, and send you for tests if they feel that you require further treatment.
