Filing motor Accident Claims UK

Being involved in a motor accident is bad enough. People involved in a car accident not only have to worry about their injuries but also have to deal with the tedious insurance claim filing process. When it comes to road accidents, drivers and passengers aren’t the only ones at risk, pedestrians and cyclists are also vulnerable. According to a report published by the UK Department for Transport, there were 24,831 serious injuries resulting from road accidents that were reported to the police in 2017. So, there’s one extra incentive to practice safe road-use techniques.

But what happens to a more-than-scrupulous road user who just happens to be a victim of a motor accident? Well of course, he or she will be overwhelmed with fear, adrenaline, confusion and uncertainty. But what comes next? Or rather, what should be your next move? After you’ve collected your thoughts and undergone a medical examination if necessary, there is a task that you cannot afford to neglect, filing an insurance claim.

Things To Do Before You File A Vehicle Accident Claim

Many people often underestimate the consequences of filing a claim without proper preparation. To not complete any tasks prior to filing a claim can create many problems in the future, including lack of compensation for body injuries or property damage.Here’s what you should do after a motor accident especially one that wasn’t your fault.

Contact The Authorities

Before anything else, give the police a call. By contacting the authorities you get a police report plus if you are the victim, a police officer might act as your witness which has a significant impact when filing a claim.
2.Collect Evidence Pertaining To The Car Accident

There are several ways to collect evidence. They include:

  • Taking pictures: Take photos of the scene of the accident including both vehicles, vehicle’s license plate, how the cars or people were positioned and also skid marks. Also, don’t forget to snap some photos of your injuries.
  • Memos & receipts: Keep a record of all receipts and prescription orders related to medical care or costs incurred as a result of the accident.
  • Witnesses: Statements from the people who saw what happened are vitally important when filing a claim. Ask for their contact info in case you need them again and convince them to give statements to the authorities for reference.

Contact Your Insurer

Now that that’s all out of the way, give you insurance company a call and update them of the situation.

Filing A Motor Accident Claim

Typically, the claims process isn’t a walk in the park. Auto insurance companies have a lot to consider and might take forever before they compensate you. Moreover, you must figure out how much compensation to claim and prove that you deserve the specified amount. Want to keep the insurance company on their toes? Then consider hiring a solicitor. Professional solicitors have vast knowledge and experience in motor accident claims in the UK and will not only help you through the initial stages but will also seek to ensure that you get your compensation.

Thank you Megan for all your hard work, your very professional and patient. Very polite i don't think the outcome would have been the same without your help.

Excellent in all areas and i would say that Goldman Knightley are the best solicitors!  I am so grateful.

Involved a slipping incident in a well know superstore.  Liability was disputed however we still managed to achieve to recover £10,000.00 for her injuries which involved soft tissue injuries to her back and shoulder.

Very professional and sympathetic to my case. The case manager got the ball rolling right away and made sure I was cared for in any way they could. I was impressed with the level of communication as well as their commitment to getting me healthy again and fairly compensated

The legal Personal Injury Lawyers handled my situation in a professional and timely manner. They quickly returned phone calls. They responded to texts and emails with a seeming sense of urgency. Communication right? It was peaceful to be kept informed and up to date on the status of my case. I received a fair settlement for my damages. I would recommend them to anyone!

James Stowers

I called numerous times throughout my case to get information and I always felt like I got all the information I asked for. Though these things take a long time to resolve, it felt good to not feel forgotten throughout the process. Great place and grateful for the job they did for me.

Olga

I was in a minor collision that caused major lower back injury. Goldman Knightley handled everything very well as far as setting up appointments during the 5 months of physical therapy I went through. It was a long journey, but the few times I called with updates, they were good on returning those calls. I was happy with my choice to use them.

This firm was, without question, the most helpful after having my accident. They remained in contact with me through the entire process and made sure all my questions were answered. I'm sure I was a little annoying with how often I wanted updates but they were patient with me and I would definitely go back to them.

Madeline Boyle

I am so happy I contacted Goldman Knightley, I got rear ended and didn't know what steps to take and as soon as I contacted them it was so easy. They made sure everything was taken care of and I got back everything I deserved and some. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of their service.
