Remember when you are involved in a Road Traffic Accident, taking as much details from the scene as possible is very important. You will need to prove that you were the innocent party and the other party was at fault. Take pictures of the vehicles involved and the accident location (what is the street name?) and ask anyone around the scene if they saw the incident and take their details, Accident Injury Solicitors will contact them to provide statements to strengthen your case. Most importantly, obtain the details of the other driver. You should also inform the police immediately so they can compile an accident report – they will sometimes attend the scene and they will help you obtain the information you need.
If the at fault party admits liability at the scene, this is not always damning evidence that your claim will run smoothly without the above mentioned details… He/she might say this to you but when reporting to their insurance company they may not be as forthcoming, simarly he/she may believe they are at fault but their insurance company may take a different view, as they are the ones paying out for your claim they may try to contest if you have not got independent evidence that you were not at fault.
Whatever information you have, contact Accident Injury Solicitors and we will advise on your claim and deal with everything from then on appropriately to obtain your compensation deserved as quickly as possible.
