    True or false? It’s always your fault in an accident with an emergency vehicle


    Typically, when you are involved in a road traffic accident with another vehicle, it quickly becomes obvious who is to blame for any damage or injuries caused. That being said, when you are involved in an accident with an emergency vehicle, you may feel more inclined to question liability. After all, there are various laws surrounding emergency vehicles. Should you have been more vigilant? Can an emergency vehicle be blamed for road accident, if a car crash happens in the case of an emergency?

    Determining liability for an accident with an emergency vehicle

    Generally speaking, in the case of an emergency, an emergency vehicle has the legal right to break standard road safety regulations. This doesn’’t mean to say, however, that if you are involved in an accident with an emergency vehicle, and you feel that you have paid due care to the road and to their presence, that the emergency vehicle can’’t be held liable for the collision.

    If you can provide evidence to prove you are not liable for the road accident that caused your injuries, in addition to medical documentation and a police incident report number or collision pack, you may be able to place liability with the third-party emergency vehicle and claim compensation.

    Claiming compensation for accidents on the road

    No matter the nature of your accident, if you have been involved in a road-related accident through no fault of your own, at Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.

    So long as the road accident occurred within the last three years, and you are able to provide the documentation stated above, we can help you determine liability and advise you of whether you have a claim that is likely to be successful if pursued.
