Even though there are speed restriction in place on the roads in the UK, people seem to be going a lot faster on the roads today, especially on the motorways. Even though the roads in the UK are getting busier and busier, the amount of serious accidents and deaths has reduced. If you are involved in an accident through no fault of your own and you suffer injuries as a result, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline and they will advise you on how to go about making accident claims in Merton.
Some accidents on the roads today are solo events. Maybe you just hit a pothole in the roads, had to swerve to miss something in the road, or maybe some oil had been spilt on the road and you couldn’t avoid it, causing you to lose control of your vehicle.
Where other vehicles are involved, the most common reason given by guilty drivers is a lack of concentration, it only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen. The reason for this could be something as simple as trying to change a CD, talking to someone else in the car, or maybe something they are passing catches their attention.
