    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    True or false? If I hit someone on a main road with impaired vision, is it my fault?

    Drivers are required by law to ensure their vision is not impaired before setting of on a car journey. This, of course, means that the question whether it is the driver’s fault if he or she hits another road user due to impaired vision can be answered with a resounding ‘yes’.

    Road traffic accidents

    Driving on busy roads requires all of a driver’s attention and the ability to see potential hazards clearly at all times. Impaired vision through dirty or cracked windscreens, for example, makes this virtually impossible. If the resulting traffic accidents may have been avoided if the driver had been able to see clearly, it is highly likely that they will carry responsibility for other road users’ personal injuries even if other circumstances may suggest someone else may initially have been at fault.

    Driver injury compensation

    If you were injured by a car accident because another road user was unable to see properly, you may be entitled to driver or passenger injury compensation. This also applies to cyclists and pedestrians hit by a vehicle with restricted vision. Naturally, this also comes into play if a driver has impaired vision and should be wearing glasses while driving, but failed to do so.

    No win no fee** claims

    Otherwise referred to as no win no fee** compensation claims, this essentially means injured parties do not have to worry about how to fund a claim, because nothing is payable until a settlement has been achieved. A percentage of the compensation awarded will be deducted from the total amount after payment thereof in order to cover solicitors’ fees, legal fees and any other cost potentially incurred during the claim procedure. How much compensation is payable can, by the way, not be predicted with any degree of certainty due to the variable nature of circumstances surrounding claims.
