If you are unlucky enough to be involved in a road traffic accident, always follow this basic guidance:
 

Health And Safety First

First and foremost, you should always take care to avoid further injury to yourself or others at the scene, and to safeguard yourself, and others where possible, from risk of harm. If there is any risk of fire or explosion, or if you suspect that another driver involved in the accident may be under the influence of drink or drugs, it is vital to call the emergency services straight away.
However, unless a serious injury has occurred or there is a potential risk of damage or injury to other motorists due to the accident, it is unlikely that the emergency services will attend the scene.

For this reason, it is important to record as much information as possible at the scene itself, so that you can refer back to it later.

If you are injured due to your accident, first of all, take care of yourself and get the medical help you need. Then, contact us to be put in touch with our specialist personal injury solicitors, who can help you if you need to claim compensation for any type of accident or injury.

Collect Information

Whilst still on the scene of the accident, you should obtain as many of the following details about the drivers of any other vehicles involved in the accident or collision as possible, and perform a basic car accident check on your own car.
