What to do if I have been involved in a car accident?

While the UK government has measures in place to ensure the highest safety on the roads, car accidents claims still remain to be the highest in the insurance world.  If you have been involved in a car accident and you intend to make a claim for compensation, you need evidence that will prove negligence on the third party. 

Following a car accident;

Note down the car plate number of the car or cars involved in the accident if it involved multiple cars.

Take the full name, address and contacts of the driver of the car.

Take witness contacts or statements if you are medically fit to do so. 

If the third party is not cooperating, try and call police to come to the scene of accident to assist.

Take pictures of the scene showing clearly the impact, or injuries sustained.

Call your insurance company to notify them of the accident.

Go to a hospital as soon as possible to get checked even if you think you are okay. Some impacts, such as whiplash impacts, can only be felt days after the accident and if you don’t get checked then there is no way to prove that your pains were as a result of an accident that you got involved in days prior.

Ensure that the doctor clearly writes that any injury noted was from the accident. This medical record is very important and admissible in court as evidence that actually the car accident had an impact on your medical well being. 

What do I do if I get involved in a Work Accident 

Every employer has the duty to ensure that his employees and visitors are safe within the workplace environment. Any practice that goes against the stipulated Health and Safety Act at the workplace can therefore be challenged in case of an accident.   

Workplace accidents can be caused by factors such as; Lack or risk assessments that haven’t been updated, lack of proper training, unsafe work equipment, Repetitive strain injuries and Lack of proper personal protective equipment. 

If you have been involved in an Accident at Work, 

Let your supervisor know of the accident. This is to act as evidence that the accident actually occurred at your workplace in case you want to make a claim in future. 

Seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your health is your priority at this point. 

The accident should be recorded in the accident book as a reinforcement of your earlier verbal statement to your supervisor or manager. If you are not in a state to write the statement by yourself, get a colleague who witnesses the accident fill it in the accident form for you. 

Take as many pictures of the accident scene as possible and if there are any visible injuries on your body, take pictures of them too as well. 
When you go to hospital, ensure that the doctor highlights the cause of your injuries as from the accident.

Taking these steps will be of great use if you decide to sue your employer for compensation in the future. It is wise to note that for any Accident Claims, hard evidence is demanded. 

What to do if I am a victim of Medical Negligence

Medical negligence is any form of malpractice by a medical practitioner that may have resulted to an injury such as spinal cord injury, brain damage and botched cosmetic surgery. The law allows you to make a claim if your injury was an accident or simply a failure to act as expected in the medical code of practice. If you can prove that the medical practitioner failed to follow the set standards of care that resulted to harm on your part then you can claim for compensation. 

Have proper documentation depicting your series of past visits, the times, the medical practitioner that attended to you.

Request that they give you your medical records. This is just to back up your self-made notes and will also show the care you received.
Medical negligence Accident claims are very emotional for most people but we are here to help you get the justice you deserve. While we cannot reverse the mistake made, we will certainly help you ease the financial burden especially if you had to stop work due to your injury.
 

Our No Win No Fee Solicitors are Experts in Accident Claims

In order to ensure that your Accident Claims process is seamless and stress free, we offer a No Win No Fee service. Also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, this is an agreement between you and the solicitor stating that if you don’t win the compensation claim case then you are not obliged to pay the solicitor any legal fees. This is a risk free case to you hence you are bound to be as truthful as possible to ensure that the solicitor can gauge the case to see if it is worth for the company to take up the case. The Accident Solicitor and you will agree on a percentage to be paid out as legal costs if you are compensated. This fee is commonly referred to as ‘success fee'.

In case you lose the case, you may be required to pay the defendant’s side legal fee and any other damage fess they may ask for. To protect yourself against this occurrence, our Accident Solicitors will advise you appropriately on measures to take in order to protect you against such eventualities.

How much will I receive as compensation for an Accident Claim?

The amount you receive as compensation for an Accident claim depends on the nature of the accident and the impact it has caused to your life. If you instruct us we will ensure that you get the highest amount in compensation for your Accident claim.

How long do I have to make an Accident claim?

Under UK law, you have three years to make an Accident claim. This means three years from the actual date the accident happened or three years from when you first realized that you are unwell as a result of someone else’s actions for example, exposure to toxic fumes and so on. 

There are few exemptions to the three year timeline;

1. If the claim is on behalf of someone who suffered mental breakdown or is in a vegetative state and can no longer act on his own.

2. If the claimant is below 18 years and resides in England or 16 years if in Scotland. 

3. If the accident happened outside UK territory.
