People often wonder what they should do if they are in a road accident in Grampian – or, for that matter, anywhere else. Here’s what to do if you’re involved in a collision:
First, and perhaps most importantly, make sure that everyone is all right. That includes you – and your passengers. Anyone who is involved should be checked out. Call the ambulance if necessary – and if anyone is injured, no matter how small the injury is, the police should be called.
After that, begin your quest for evidence.
What kind of evidence is useful when you have had a road accident in Grampian?
Here is a checklist:
- The other driver’s name, address, and phone number
- The name of the insurer of the other driver
- Photographs of the damage to your vehicle, as well as street furniture
- Photographs that show the driving conditions at the time
Other things which you should do
You will probably be quite unsettled by the accident and injuries, no matter how minor the road accident in Grampian was. But you should endeavour to keep as clear a head as possible.
When you get home, begin to note down your recollections of the incident. Do this as soon as you can, because the longer you leave it, the more you will forget the details.
Take photos of your injuries when you get home, too.
Finally, call Accident Advice Helpline to make a compensation claim!
