If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, seek immediate medical assistance regardless of the level of injury sustained. It is important to seek the details of the person or persons responsible for the accident including insurance particulars, vehicle registration, make and model, vehicle colour, name, address and contact details.
It is also important to take photos of the accident scene, if you are in a position to do so, including the location of the vehicles involved immediately following the incident.
The accident should then be reported to local Gardai, if someone else has not already done so, before notifying your insurance provider. When you are well enough to do so, seek legal advice on what to next as soon as possible in order to pursue your compensation claim without adverse consequences.
