Road traffic accidents can be a very traumatic experience for all involved, but never more so than if you were injured in one that was not your own fault. It is no wonder that in this situation, innocent victims get in touch with our accident lawyer in Cefn-Mawr to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The reasons for road traffic accidents
The most common cause of any road traffic accident is driver error, often caused by a lack of concentration on the part of the driver. Drivers can be very easily distracted, and it only takes looking the wrong way for a couple of seconds for an accident to happen. It is sometimes surprising though the sorts of things drivers try to do while in charge of a motor vehicle, such things as:
- Reading a map which they have spread out on their lap, or on the seat next to them
- Reading something else
- Doing their hair or makeup
- Texting on their mobile phone
- Eating and drinking
- Tuning their radio or changing a CD
- Watching something that is happening at the roadside
- Adjusting their seat
If you sit in a line of traffic any morning rush hour on a UK road, you will see stupid drivers doing things they should not.
A driver needs to concentrate 100% while at the wheel, and there is a train of though that says this is why motorbike riders make better car drivers. As part of the training to ride a motorbike, they are taught how to be aware of everything around them, and how important concentration is.
Other causes of road traffic accidents
Of course, there are other causes of road traffic accidents, including not obeying road signs or traffic islands, jumping red traffic lights and speeding being just a few examples. Overtaking when it is unsafe is just another thing that endangers the life of other road users, and if you are injured in any road traffic accident that was caused by someone else, you have the legal right to compensation.
