Road Traffic Accident

Being involved in a road traffic accident that wasn't your fault is a frightening and traumatic experience, and often people can see making a claim as daunting. Very rarely do people walk away unharmed. For example, often after a car accident whiplash can develop becoming debilitating and painful.

Guide: ‘What to do if you are involved in a car accident’
“The golden rule at the scene of any accident, regardless of how it has happened or what is said at the scene is to obtain as much information as possible.”
“Many people forget to note down those details at an accident scene, which could help a claim to be processed without delay or complication.”
“Almost all of the vital information you need is there for you to see and note down without even having to ask the other driver.”
“Note down the other driver’s vehicle make, model, colour and most important of all their registration number.”
“This will allow Hattons to check the vehicle details on the Motor Insurance Database to see who the vehicle was insured with at the time of the accident. We can also make checks with the DVLA.”
“Ask the other driver for their name and full postal address.”
“This is something that they are legally obliged to provide to you. If they refuse, then you should call the police immediately as they are then committing a criminal offence.”
“A person refusing to provide their details at the scene of an accident may have something to hide such as having no insurance, or not being qualified to drive. The police should be asked to intervene and will act appropriately should things not be in order.”
“Record as much written information about the accident scene as you can.”
“Details such as road markings, weather and light conditions, whether the cars had their lights on, signals being made by cars at the time etc, all helps us build a full picture your case.”
“Take a note of the damage sustained to your vehicle and that of the other driver.
“You should record where the damage is to both vehicles and make a note of the extent of the damage.”
“Look to see if there are any witnesses and collect their contact details in case they are needed to support your case.”
“Finally make sure you contact Hattons Solicitors for expert legal advice.”
“Even if you haven’t had chance to record all the information mentioned in our online guide, we could still help you to make a claim for compensation.”
“We will answer all your questions and advise you on your options to put your mind at ease.”
