Being involved in a road accident can be a very traumatic experience and it will be even more traumatic and concerning if there are injuries, therefore you should know if you are eligible to persue road traffic accident claims for compensation.
If you or a family member has been involved in a road traffic accident our team of specialist solicitors can help you to gain the rehabilitation and compensation you are entitled too. Every month our team are contacted by road users who have suffered injuries due to an accident that wasn’t their fault.
What should you do when you are involved in a road traffic accident?
It is important to take the following steps:
- Record the details of the other party at the scene, including name, address, telephone, insurance details and vehicle registration number.
- Report the matter to the police immediately. If for any reason this is not possible, report the accident in person to a police station as soon as you can (and get a police reference number).
- Take details of any other party and any witnesses.
- Contact your own insurers.
