HGV Accident Claims

HGV Accident Claim UK

If you have been involved in an HGV accident, what should you do? Do you have to call the police and wait at the scene of the accident or can you move on? When should you obtain treatment and should this be from your General Practitioner or an Accident & Emergency Department? What about your HGV being repaired?

The Legal Oracle are here to answer these questions and many more and to ensure that you are put in touch with the right person to help you as soon as possible.

The Scene Of Your HGV Accident

Immediately after an HGV accident you should :-

  • Obtain the name, address, vehicle registration and contact details of anyone else involved in the accident along with details of their insurance company;
  • Obtain full details of any witnesses – they will be essential in helping you to prove your case if you decide to make a claim;
  • Take photographs of the scene of the accident if possible. Using your phone or any camera will help. Try to include something to scale and date the accident scene (e.g. newspapers for the date);
  • If you are injured, you should report the accident to the police. Do not move the vehicles until the police arrive so that they can take measurements;
  • Do not admit liability for the accident as you are usually specifically excluded from doing so by your insurance company.

Your HGV Repairs

If you are the driver of an HGV vehicle that is damaged in the accident, what are your options for HGV repairs? The Legal Oracle solicitors will be able to assess the extent of damage and ensure that you get back on the road as soon as possible or that payment for the vehicle is received early if it is beyond repair.

Why You Must Act Now

If you have suffered an injury please contact us immediately. Failure to do so could cause your claim to fail or significantly reduce the chances of success for two reasons:

  1. The longer the period you leave before taking action, the less the chance of the success of your claim. This is due to the evidence required to connect the chain of events to prove that your injury was caused by the accident in question.

  2. The Legal Oracle specialists can only look after a set number of people who have been injured. This is because they aim to provide the highest standards of service and can only do this if they limit the number of people that they help. To give you the best chance of being helped by one of our solicitors get in touch with us immediately or we may not be able to help you.

Delay really can be fatal to your chances of success, so please contact us now and let us take care of you and your claim.
