Although any type of road traffic accidents can result in devastating injuries, collisions which involved large vehicles, such as lorries and trucks, can be particularly bad. As these vehicles tend to weigh a lot more than cars or motorbikes, when they are involved in a collision they can cause serious damage to the other vehicles.
Do you need to contact Aberdeen accident claim solicitors after being involved in a collision with a lorry?
Even vehicles with advanced safety mechanisms installed may not be able to protect passengers if they are involved in a collision with a large vehicle. Furthermore, if a lorry or large vehicle was to skid and topple over, it is likely that it would crush any vehicles that it landed on, as well as causing serious injury to the lorry driver.
In order to drive larger vehicles, you are generally required to obtain additional driving licenses. This means that lorry drivers have undergone a range of training to enable them to control the vehicle effectively. However, it is still possible that a lorry driver could cause an accident inadvertently and people could be hurt as a result.
If you’ve been hurt or injured because of a collision with a vehicle of this type and you don’t believe that you were at fault, we may be able to help. Providing you can prove that the incident wasn’t your fault and that someone or something else caused your injuries, it’s highly possible that Aberdeen accident claim solicitors could help you to obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered.
Although obtaining compensation with Aberdeen accident claim solicitors can’t reverse your injuries, it may help to cope whilst you recover. If, for example, you’re unable to work after being injured or you need to take time, you may lose some or all of your income. Obtaining compensation with Aberdeen accident claim solicitors could help to alleviate your financial concerns and could enable you to focus fully on your health.
