    Gridlock and road traffic accidents


    There are few things as frustrating for a motorist as being stuck in traffic. The feeling that you get when you are sitting there behind the wheel, going nowhere, is like no other. When drivers are suffering such anxiety and frustration, that’s when road traffic accidents can occur.

    Why do car accidents happen when we are in traffic?

    Quite simply put, frustration and tension are not a good mix when you are driving any vehicle. If you’ve ever been stuck in a tailback you’ll know that quite often you see further accidents down that road that have occurred in the queuing traffic. This can be put down to a number of factors:

    • Frustration and anger building up among drivers
    • Drivers trying to gain an advantage in the queue of traffic
    • Drivers attempting to get where they are going in a hurry
    • People looking elsewhere and taking their eyes off the road
    • Drivers using radios and mobile devices when they are stationary

    If you have been injured in an accident you may be entitled to compensation

    Accidents on the road can cause serious and life threatening injuries; that’s why if you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. Compensation is often used by those who have been hurt for a number of reasons, such as:

    • Expensive medical bills
    • Repairs to damaged vehicles
    • Loss of earnings
    • Travel expenses

Accident Advice Helpline deals with an array of road traffic accident claims and has experience in handling compensation cases. They can help you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
