The Car crash self help guide contains step by step practical information, including checklists and videos by experienced practitioners. It is designed for situations where there is damage to cars or property as a result of a car accident.
It covers what to do at the scene of an accident, options to cover the costs of having a car repaired, and what to do if someone is requested to pay for damage caused to cars or property. It explains how to deal with insurers and what to do if a case ends up at court, including if a judgment is entered.
It includes examples of letters that can be sent to the other driver, insurers and the FOS, as well as checklists for different stages.
The resource was created as the result of a collaborative project involving staff in LPD and Civil Law.
