    How to claim dangerous driver compensation


    Thankfully there are very few dangerous drivers on our roads today. The vast majority of people understand how important it is to make sure they are competent and able to drive a vehicle without endangering anyone else. This means driving at or below the speed limit, according to the conditions of the road, and being alert to any potential hazards around them.

    While very few people could be described as dangerous drivers, each year sees accidents happen that are the result of dangerous driving. Unfortunately it is very often innocent people who are seriously hurt in such incidents. In some cases they are driving another vehicle and just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. In other cases they might be a passenger in a vehicle, or even a pedestrian.

    Have you been injured because of a dangerous driver?

    If someone has been charged with – or convicted of – dangerous driving and you were injured in an accident caused by that person, you have an opportunity to see whether you could get any dangerous driver compensation. Driving of this nature sadly often results in serious injuries or even fatalities. These could have been completely avoided if that person had been driving properly.

    As such you may have been hurt in ways that have changed your life. You may also have suffered mental and psychological anguish as a result of your experience. In some cases, the people Accident Advice Helpline speaks to are the loved ones of those who have been killed in an accident caused by a dangerous driver. We can help in many different cases and situations.
