What Should You Do If You Have Been Involved In A Scarborough Accident?

As well as the priority of seeking medical help for you and any other victims, calling any relevant authorities and generally making sure everything is safe, there are some very useful things to do post-accident that can help your ensuing personal injury claim:

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident:

  • If you have had an accident, you need to get the name and address of any other parties involved.
  • Insurance and registration details (for road traffic accidents).
  • Witness contact details.
  • A note of any particular circumstances and road markings.

For incidents at work:

  • Get a copy of relevant entries in the accident book.
  • Obtain the details of any witnesses to your accident or injury.
  • Details of any previous complaints about the place/machinery involved.
  • Information of any changes that they may have made since your accident.

For slips, falls or trips in the street:

  • Get a photograph of what caused the accident, such as a faulty kerbstone or pothole. Make sure you put something in the photo that shows the scale (e.g. a 50 pence piece).
  • Report the matter to the local council concerned.

If the fall was on private property rather than in a Scarborough street, then you need to:

  • Report the matter to the owner of the property.
  • Get a copy of relevant entries in the accident book.
  • Please take photographs of whatever it was that caused the accident.

Note that our personal injury lawyers covering Scarborough can advise on what other evidence you require.

Scarborough Personal Injury Lawyers FAQs

Does it matter where the accident happens?

Not necessarily. Yes, it dictates who the defendant will be. But if you suffer an injury in an accident regardless of the circumstances, you could file a claim.

Now, does the accident have to happen in Scarborough?

No, because as a Scarborough resident, you could still use a personal injury lawyer covering Scarborough.

But what if I handle the claim myself?

You could do this, but it’s best not to do so. That’s because your odds of winning the claim will reduce due to the lack of legal counsel.

What evidence do I need for my claim?

So, you could have witness statements, photographs of the scene, CCTV footage and a medical assessment of your injuries.

Does the severity of the injury determine my potential payout?

Yes, because a serious neck injury has the potential to cause longer-term damage than, say, a collarbone fracture,

How long does the claims process take?

Usually, you should have a settlement within 12 or 18 months.

What if the claim does go to court?

If this happens, the process lasts longer, but you have more scope to achieve maximum compensation.

And what if the defendant refuses liability?

This scenario is the most likely that could result in the claim going to a trial.
