Car Crash Compensation can be applicable to many different forms of road traffic accident. You may be entitled to car crash compensation if you have been the driver or a passenger in a vehicle which has been involved in an accident which was not 100% your fault, or if you have been hit by a vehicle whilst on foot or cycling along the street. When suffering an injury in a road traffic accident, it is important that both the Gardai and an ambulance are called.
The Gardai will take statements and make detailed illustrations of the scene, whilst you and any injured parties are receiving medical attention. The information acquired by the Gardai will be kept in a road traffic accident report book for future reference if you choose to claim for car crash compensation, but the immediate consideration should always be your health. In the event that the Gardai do not attend the scene of the crime as sometimes happens in minor accidents, you should ensure that you have the name and insurance details of any other drivers involved in the accident, and make an independent note of the vehicle registration numbers.
Claiming Car Crash Compensation
Drivers involved in road traffic accidents are frequently cautious about admitting responsibility for their actions, and it is therefore vital that, once medical treatment has been administered, you contact a solicitor accustomed to assisting in claims for car crash compensation. Your solicitor will contact the Gardai and obtain details of the accident to create a case on your behalf, during which time it is important that you avoid accepting an early settlement offer from the negligent drivers´ insurance company. Too often, victims of road traffic accidents have been left with inadequate sums of car crash compensation to cover loss of earnings due to their incapacity to work, and ongoing medical expenses.
