As soon as you get behind the wheel of a car, you have a duty to be responsible in your driving manner. Speed limits are in place for a reason, for example, but they are the suggested maximum for a particular area. They do not mean you should always travel at that speed. Many accidents occur that are entirely avoidable, and many are caused through excess speed and a lack of care and attention.
We all know things happen and accidents can happen too. However, regardless of how good a driver you may be, you can never account for the actions of others. You may be observing all the rules of the road and be alert to what is going on around you, and yet someone else may still run right into you, injuring you in the process.
Major or minor injuries
Speed, not to mention how the accident happens, will play a huge part in the outcome. A negligent driver might hit you head-on, or from the side. Similarly you may be a pedestrian walking along the pavement, only to be faced with a speeding car coming straight for you that mounts the pavement, leaving you with nowhere to go.
Negligent driver compensation has been paid to others in situations very similar to this in the past. If the other driver can be proven to have been negligent, this improves your chances of receiving compensation for what happened. Compensation is calculated according to where you suffered injuries and what type of injuries they were. The severity will also have a bearing on any final payment that is made to you, not to mention how long you may suffer from each injury for.
