Car Accident Compensation Claims
If you have been involved in a car accident then you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Car accident compensation claims can be made if you were:
- Driving a car and have suffered an accident and injury due to a collision that was not your fault.
- A passenger in a vehicle that has been involved in a road traffic accident that has caused you to suffer personal injury.
If you have been involved in a car accident that you believe was not your fault, you should contact a personal injury solicitor immediately to discuss your potential claim.
At the scene of the accident, obtain the details of the other party involved. Details should include; their name, address, vehicle registration and insurance details.
If you believe that the circumstances of the accident are likely to be in dispute, it is advised that you make a note of the exact accident details; the time, date and location of the accident, as well as gaining contact information for any witnesses to the incident.
If the emergency services are called to the scene of an accident it is advised that you co-operate fully, as you may later need to rely on the police report to help prove your claim for compensation.
If you have sustained injuries as a result of the car accident, make a note of any treatment and medical appointments attended.
It will help to speed up your car accident compensation claims if you have as much information as possible regarding your accident when making the initial call to a personal injury solicitor.
