Over 200000 car accidents occur on UK roads every year; if you have been involved in a road traffic collision and the accident was not your fault Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you make a claim. Any innocent victim of a car accident is entitled to make a claim for compensation providing they submit their claim within three years of the incident occurring.
If you have been involved in a car accident due to the fault of a third party and you want to claim compensation it is helpful if you do the following after the incident:
? Take down the details of the responsible third party including their name address and telephone number.
? Always make a note of the registration number of the car that caused the accident in case they gave you false details at the scene.
? Report the incident to the police so a record of the incident is made.
? Seek medical assistance for your injuries; some injuries do not become apparent until a number of hours after an accident so it is always worth seeking medical advice immediately about how to deal with this.
? Keep a record of any damage done to additional personal items as we may be able to help you claim compensation for the damage to these too.
? Where possible take photographs of the accident scene including the damage to your vehicle.
? If your injuries are visible you should take photographs of the injuries. If the injuries cannot be seen evidence of them can be obtained from your medical records.
The car accidents experts at Michael Lewin Solicitors can assess your claim for a personal injury claim in a matter of minutes. Making a claim over the phone from the comfort of your own home is easy with our help.
You can also claim for any financial losses you have incurred as a result of the accident. In order to do this we will need to see evidence of your wages before the accident and evidence of the losses you sustained in the recovery period afterwards; this can be found on your wage slips. You must also keep any evidence of additional expenses you have incurred such as prescription fees and medical costs. We will always aim to get everything back that you have lost as the result of an accident that was not your fault.
