Traffic accident scene

Road accidents and subsequent road accident compensation cases are inevitable. After all, it is not like you can close your eyes and pretend that it never happened. All accidents, big and small, have a certain traumatic effect on those who suffer them. You need to make sure that you are compensated and see that justice is served.

Accident Compensation After the Accident

One of the first things you should do after the accident is to check your insurance policy. Most insurance companies expect you to report an accident within 48 hours. If you fail to do that, the insurance companies may attempt to free themselves from their obligations. Note when reporting your accident to your insurance company, be aware they may try and convince you to use their preferred personal injury solicitor. They are simply trying to sell your case to the highest possible bidder. Most personal injury solicitors that buy cases from insurance companies do so because they simply aren’t much good at winning full compensation!

In a road accident compensation cases, there is always two sides of the story. As such, the insurance company will also want to get hold of the other side’s report as well. You may need to report several facts like driver’s license, personal information, and the insurance policy number of the other party. However, often the insurance policy number is sufficient.

Accident Details

Even if you wish to forget what happened in the accident, be aware you will need to accurately recount exactly what happened in order to claim compensation. Basically, your statement will help your case provided that you have reported the events accurately. After the accident, it would help if you can recall the events in a reasonably clear manner. This would be especially useful if you are asked to draw a rough sketch later on.

Courtesy Cars

If your car is being repaired, you will be provided with a courtesy car paid for by the insurance company of the at fault driver.
