Every year we here at Accident Advice Helpline handle a number of personal injury claims in Pembrokeshire that are related to road traffic accidents and accidents that are caused by driver error in particular. All drivers fully understand the importance of keeping their eyes on the road ahead at all times. However it’s much easier said than done, particularly when you happen to be driving around in an area of outstanding natural beauty such as Pembrokeshire in South Wales.
The fact of the matter is that even when you do keep your eyes on the road and spot an incident taking place in front of you, it takes approximately 0 .7 seconds to actually place your foot on the brake pedal. If you happen to be travelling at 30 mph (which equates to 44 ft per second) it means that you will have travelled 30 feet before you are even ready to take avoiding action.
By the time you then put pressure on the brake pedal and bring the car to a stop, you will have travelled a further 45 feet. It’s easy to understand therefore, that if you happen to take your eyes off the road for a split-second just before an incident takes place, that split second or two means you will have travelled that much further before being able to stop.
Launching claims in Pembrokeshire via Accident Advice Helpline
Many RTA injury claims in Pembrokeshire happen in this way and if you happen to be the innocent injury victim, you will be entitled to financial compensation as long as you received medical treatment for the injury you sustained. If this is the case, and the incident took place sometime within the past three years, then we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with launching your claim for personal injury compensation.
It makes no difference whether the driver responsible for the accident was driving the car you were travelling in, or whether it was the driver of another car. You will still be entitled to claim compensation and just how much that might amount to can be established quite easily by taking the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. Anyone can take this test; it costs nothing to do so and won’t put you in any under any sort of obligation to take the matter any further, whether with us or another injury claim solicitor. That decision rests entirely with you.

Claims for personal injury compensation are often processed faster, the earlier they are launched.

That’s why we recommend early action; so bearing that in mind why not get in touch with us today?
