When you learn to drive you learn about using your mirrors to assess where you are, how to manoeuvre the car and to learn who is around you. As such using your mirrors is an essential part of being safe in your car and minimising the chances of having an accident.
Unfortunately the more experience we get behind the wheel the more likely it is we will start to get a bit lazy with our driving habits. Even if you make a conscious effort to drive responsibly, other people may not do the same thing. They may increase their chances of causing an accident and that could have an impact on you – quite literally.
Could lack of attention lead to compensation?
Many different accidents on the roads today are caused by one or more drivers not paying proper attention to the road and the situation around them. A simple lack of attention can change lives within minutes – and sometimes end them altogether. It may sound dramatic but lives are lost and others are damaged as a result of road accidents.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise therefore, to know that those who are the victims in accidents like these – even if they are pedestrians and not behind the wheel of a car – can make a claim for compensation. The amount they could potentially win would depend on a variety of factors, but a professional injury compensation lawyer would be able to advise you in this situation.
