What do I do if I’ve been in a road traffic accident?
To help you make a claim, Gregory Abrams Davidson Solicitors recommends that you are prepared for the unexpected. You should ALWAYS:
- Keep a pen and notepad in your car. (This will help you keep a note of all details of the other person(s) involved, as well as the time, weather conditions, injuries sustained by all parties, names and numbers of any emergency servicemen and any other important information.)
- Keep a disposable camera (or a camera phone) in your car. (This will enable you to take pictures of the scene of the accident from all different angles and will give our solicitors an idea of how the accident occurred and it will benefit your compensation claim.)
By law, all drivers should be insured against road traffic accident/car accident claims. Insurers charge insurance premiums so that they can pay out accident compensation.
You should never feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a road traffic accident claim if you have suffered an injury from a road traffic accident that was not your fault.
Road traffic accident compensation will not make you better, but it may help to cover your losses and ease your suffering. This is particularly important if you have had to take time off work, causing you to lose earnings.
