You’d be surprised how many accidents happen when vehicles are approaching or on a roundabout. You may not be driving at speed, but even a low-speed collision or pile-up could lead to injuries to your back, neck and shoulders that could be incredibly painful.
Roundabouts are a known accident blackspot, as there is traffic approaching from a variety of different directions – and as a driver you are relying on other drivers to look before they pull onto the roundabout.
All it takes is one speeding or careless driver and you could be left injured after a collision. The good news is that Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim roundabout collision compensation if you’ve suffered injuries as a result of another driver’s negligence – you’ll just need to ensure you get in touch within three years of your accident.
How serious are your injuries?
A collision on a roundabout could lead to serious injuries, particularly if you are hit by a speeding vehicle or a lorry or bus. Life-changing injuries such as a head injury could mean you’re unable to return to work and provide for your family – you could even be left permanently physically or mentally disabled after a high-speed crash.
Negligent drivers who fail to pay attention to other road users or reduce their speed as they approach a roundabout shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it – you can take action by making a claim for roundabout collision compensation.
The amount of compensation you’ll receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and how they have impacted your life, but Accident Advice Helpline will also take into account things like expenses and loss of earnings. So if you have medical bills to cover or have spent money travelling to hospital appointments, this will form part of your settlement.
Why should you claim?
Struggling financially after an accident is the last thing you need, so if you have been hit by another vehicle as you pulled onto a roundabout or rear-ended in a pile-up on a roundabout, give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
