Involved In An Accident
1. At the scene of the accident, you should obtain as many of
the following details from the other drivers of any other
vehicles involved in your collision.
a) Name, address and phone number
b) Vehicle registration number, make and model
c) Exact damage and the location of the damage
d) Insurance company and policy number
e) Name, address and phone number of any witnesses
f) A plan of the accident scene and,
If you have a phone with a camera, take some photographs of the
scene and damage caused to all vehicles etc. This is an
excellent way to record this information.
2. Do not admit liability under any circumstances to any person
including the other driver or their insurer.
You should not speak with the insurer of the negligent driver
after the accident and you should seek our assistance in
responding to any correspondence you might receive.
The insurer of the fault driver will want to reduce the amount
of any compensation you are entitled to receive from the
accident and until you have received advice you may not know
what your entitlement is. Anything that you do say to the other
party will probably be recorded and it may prejudice the outcome
of your claim.
3. Telephone our office immediately on
01204 659 191.
4. We will provide you with assistance to confirm that you were
not at fault for the accident and we will assist you on how best
to obtain a replacement vehicle for the period in which your own
is being repaired.
5. In the event that there was any injury arising from the
accident, damage to any street furniture or if either you or the
other driver, did not stop after the accident or did not provide
their name, address, vehicle registration number and insurance
details, then you have a legal requirement to report the
accident to the local Police. You have to do this in person. The
Police may not wish to take details from you, in the event of
this you should ask for a self-reporting accident form so that
you can comply with your legal responsibility.
6. Following an accident for which you were not at fault, you
are entitled to a replacement vehicle, to have your vehicle
repaired to its pre-accident condition, to claim compensation
for any loss in the value of your vehicle arising from the
accident damage and to make a claim for personal injury to
recompense you for pain and suffering arising from any personal
injury sustained by you. We can assist you to claim all of these
However, in bringing any claim for compensation, you are under a
common law duty to mitigate your losses which means that you are
expected to keep your losses and expenses to a reasonable amount
but that does not mean you have to suffer or make do.
7. Finally, you should keep receipts for items of expenditure
that you incur for which you might wish to reclaim from the
negligent driver. If you wish to claim for incidental expenses -
telephone calls made and letters sent, for example - then you
need to keep a record of these.
