If you’ve been injured in a road accident which was not your fault (either as the driver, passenger, or pedestrian) in the last three years then you may have a chance to claim for injury compensation. If you are, or have been, an unfortunate victim of a road accident then there are some key things to remember to help you claim the compensation you deserve. Here is what you need to do when you have been in a car accident:
- Move to a safe location, if you’re able, away from the road
- Call the emergency services (if required)
- If you are injured, seek professional medical attention ASAP
- Never admit liability in the first instance
- Get witness statements if possible
- Take photographic evidence
- Contact a car accident injury lawyer
Can you make a motor accident compensation claim?
If you have suffered a road accident injury, you could be suffering from any one or more of the following symptoms:
- Cuts and lacerations to the body
- Broken/fractured bones
- Soft tissue damage
- Anxiety, flashbacks, depression or post-traumatic shock
- Head and brain injuries
- Internal injuries
The list of possible injuries goes on and on, and could be having a severe impact on your day-to-day life. Even minor whiplash can result in long-term pain, the inability to work and be very debilitating. Your first priority must be to seek immediate medical attention, but once you have done so you should consider taking some expert legal advice. If your road accident was somebody else’s fault, they should be held to account.
