ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT:
Unfortunately, road traffic accidents occur all too often. Every year, thousands of people are injured, whether they were the driver, passenger or pedestrian, through no fault of their own. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident which was not your fault and you suffered an injury of some kind you could be eligible for compensation.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER A ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT:
A road traffic accident can be very stressful to deal with and it’s only natural that you’ll feel anxious and disoriented immediately afterwards. First and foremost, it’s important to stay calm – there’s a certain amount of information you’ll need about the incident and the other driver, so keeping a clear head is useful, when gathering the following facts:
Find out if the other driver has insurance by asking them.
If the other driver refuses to give you their insurance information, then you can report them to the police instantly.
Take note of their registration number as this can provide us with a lot of information about the driver.
Try to collect as much information as you can about the accident as well as your losses and any injuries that you may have sustained.
If it is safe to do so, take photos of both vehicles at the time of the accident, and of your injuries, if they are visible.
If the police were involved and you reported the accident to them, they would have provided you with a reference number – remember to give this to us, as it will make your claim more stronger.
If you can the same day, phone your doctor & get a emergency appointment booked about your injuries that you sustained during the road traffic accident, it would be helpful towards yourself & your claim.
HOW TO CLAIM FOR A ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT:
RTAs (or road traffic accidents) can have devastating consequences and leave those involved injured, traumatised and unable to work for long periods of time. Whether you’re the driver or a passenger in a vehicle that is involved in a road traffic accident, it’s important that you’re aware of your right to claim for compensation if the accident was not your fault.
WHAT TYPES OF ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS ARE THERE:
There are many different types of accidents that occur on the road, such as head on collisions, rear end collisions and motorway incidents. Some can result in months of recuperation and time off work, while others can be the cause of life-long disability and constant medical care. At both ends of the spectrum, accident claims for compensation can help to mitigate hardship to some extent and lead to a better quality of life, allowing the victim to concentrate on recovery, rather than worrying about money concerns.
CLAIMING FOR A ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT:
In order to claim compensation for an RTA you need to be able to prove that someone else was to blame for the accident and that you have suffered injury, trauma or loss as a result. In the case of the latter, this would include evidence such as medical records (a medical examination may be required to specifically ascertain the extent of your injuries), and documented time off work. If you have incurred costs from medical treatments and associated expenses, be sure to keep hold of all receipts, as these will be needed if you intend to claim for them. The other party from whom you will attempt to obtain compensation may be the driver of another vehicle, or it may even be the driver of the vehicle you were in. In proving their responsibility for the accident, any evidence you have to support your claim will be regarded as relevant.
