What should I do after a car or vehicle accident?
Being the victim of a car accident can be a stressful ordeal and it can be hard to deal with the shock of what’s happened. However it is vital to know the right steps to take after an accident. Here’s what you should do:
Make sure everyone is safe and don’t panic
Gather information from the other driver including name, phone number, car registration details, insurance information (provider, insurance number and policy details) and drivers licence number.
Don’t admit fault
Gather contact information from witnesses (in situations where fault may be disputed, accounts if witnesses could help your claim).
Take pictures of the scene of the accident, of the damage to cars and property
Call and report the accident to the police
Call your insurance provider

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) compensation claims
If you’ve been injured while driving and the accident was the total or partial fault of another driver, then Compulsory Third Party (CTP) claims can cover your costs. Even if you’re a passenger in the vehicle that was at-fault during the accident, this type of claim can also cover you.
You’ll need to make a third party insurance claim within one month of consulting a lawyer or nine months after the date of the accident. It is best to contact us as soon as possible after the accident so we can provide you with expert legal advice to ensure you’ll receive the maximum amount of compensation.
To make a third party (CTP) insurance claim, you’ll need to report the incident to the police (LHD Lawyers can help you with this), find out the insurer of the at-fault driver, submit a Notice of Accident Claim Form, and obtain a medical certificate from your doctor in regard to your injuries.
