    What to do if a reckless driver caused your injuries


    Most of us pride ourselves on our driving skills. We stay within the speed limit, we make sure we are aware of what is happening around us and we stay well away from other cars whenever we can. We also obey all the rules of the road and adhere to the Highway Code at all times.

    However, there are some drivers whose driving falls below the standards you would expect everyone to achieve. Even if a driver is usually very good at driving, there can be the odd occasion when they are neglectful of their duties.

    Does an accident have to be serious in order for you to sustain injuries?

    No – many more minor accidents can leave those involved with injuries, albeit less serious ones. If a reckless driver caused your injuries, you may be left with seatbelt bruising, whiplash and any number of other less serious injuries, depending on how the accident occurred.

    In some cases, the other driver will admit fault straight away. However, this is likely not to be the case, which is why you should gather as much evidence as possible. This may include getting photos of the event and where it occurred, by taking them with your mobile phone. You should also get details of witnesses who can back up your story of what happened.
