Being involved in a road accident can result in a wide array of injuries; however the most common injury type is a whiplash injury. Whiplash can be extremely painful and can take many days, even weeks, to heal properly. This often causes victims to require time off work, time that results in a loss of earnings.

Knowing how to deal with a road accident can greatly improve your chances of starting a successful whiplash injury claim. This article will outline 5 important factors that, if executed correctly, could be extremely beneficial to your injury claim.

The first step should be completed at the scene of your road accident if possible. Obviously the first thing you should acquire is the insurance details, vehicle details and personal details of the other party. Also gather the details of any witnesses, any passengers and if possible, take photographs. Most mobile phones these days have an integrated digital camera, so use this to gather evidence and strengthen your case.

Ensure that you are with the right insurer. Car insurance is a big money making industry, and every company wants to have you on their books.

Ask lots of questions, a qualified solicitor will be able to answer any question you have. Ensure they are specialised in the road accident field of injury claim law.
