Car Accident Claims
If you are injured in a car accident which was not your fault, you need to speak to our solicitors about claiming personal injury compensation. Car accident claims ensure victims of road traffic accidents receive the redress they deserve.
Car accident claims
Unfortunately, car accidents happen on our roads. When they do, those who have been injured through no fault of their own are entitled to claim compensation for their damages.
Car accidents can lead to a range of injuries, from soft tissue injuries such as whiplash, to severe head and spinal injuries. Sometimes, they can be fatal.
Whatever the extent of your injuries, the accident is likely to have a huge impact on your life. Car accidents often cause shock and distress, and some people experience flashbacks and nightmares.
You may also require a lengthy hospital stay and/or ongoing rehabilitation for weeks, months or even years. This could affect your ability to work, resulting in the loss of earnings or the loss of employment. Furthermore, your vehicle could be badly damaged, causing yet more problems.
If you sustained such injuries through no fault of your own, you deserve to be compensated for the physical, emotional and financial damages you have experienced.
What do to after a car accident
When you are injured in a car accident, there are a couple of things you can do to help your claim.
Firstly, try to collect as much evidence at the scene of the accident as possible. Of course if you are badly hurt, this will not be feasible. But if you can, get the names and contact details of everyone else involved, and the registration numbers of the other vehicles. Also, take photographs, including the damage to your vehicle.
Secondly, never state that you were in the wrong. Sometimes people mistakenly apologise, perhaps because they are in shock, or because they feel under pressure from the other driver. However, this can impact a car accident claim from the outset. It is therefore essential that you speak to us straightaway, before talking to anybody else.
