Involved in a Road Accident?

Road traffic accidents are one of the most common types of accident claims that we deal with at Accident Helpline Scotland.

Road Traffic Accidents

Accidents on the road can result in a stressful experience for anyone involved, varying from minor bumps and bruises and even physical injuries such as whiplash that could have an impede everyday life to more serious consequences.

At Accident Helpline Scotland we understand that pedestrians, motorbike users and cyclists are the most vulnerable when it comes to road accidents. 

The first thing you should do if you are involved in an road traffic accident is to exchange insurance and contact details with the other parties who have been involved. Additional information such as the registration numbers of vehicles involved, photographs of the accident, and any witness contact details are also useful to collect.

If you are unable to exchange details, such as in the case of a hit and run whereby other vehicles do not stop at the scene of the accident, then you should report the incident to the police within 24 hours. 



Claiming Financial Support

If you have been in a car accident that wasn't your fault whether it has been due to other road users, poorly maintained roads, bad weather conditions or other external factors, then you could be entitled to a claim for financial support. If you have been forced to take time off of work then financial support could cover a loss of earnings or help to compensate any physical suffering that you have endured. 

Accident Helpline Scotland have a dedicated team of personal injury solicitors with a wealth of experience dealing in road traffic accident claims. Our specialist skills and expert knowledge allows us to guide you through the process, advising on the best course of action to take regarding your claim. We also strive to make sure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation available to you following an accident on a road.
