Accident Solicitor Sedgley
The suburban area of Sedgley in the north of the Dudley may be populous, but its transport links are surprisingly lacking. Due to its hilly terrain, Sedgley has never had a canal or rail link, making road travel a necessity for its many residents. Due to the reliance on car and bus travel, traffic congestion is a serious problem in Sedgley and accidents on the road are common.
What are the main causes of road traffic accidents?
Whether caused by speed, tiredness, intoxication or some other factor, driver error remains the UK’s most common cause of road traffic accidents. Environmental factors such as cracks in the roads and faulty traffic lights can also contribute to accidents.
If you have been injured in an accident on the roads that was not your fault, an accident solicitor in Sedgley will be able to help you claim the road accident compensation you are entitled to – regardless of the cause of your accident.
Who will be on the receiving end of my personal injury claim?
If your injuries were sustained in an accident caused by another road user, your personal injury claim will be made against the other person’s insurance company. If, on the other hand, your accident was caused by an environmental factor, such as cracks in the road, your claim will be filed with the Highways Agency.
An accident solicitor in Sedgley will also be able to help you if your accident was caused by an uninsured or hit and run driver. In this instance, your road traffic accident compensation claim will be filed with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. All motor insurance companies in the UK are required to pay into the Motor Insurers’ Bureau fund to cover the cost of road traffic accidents caused by untraced and uninsured drivers.
