    Vehicle non-fault accidents


    Accidents are a common occurrence on the roadways every day. It doesn’t matter what country you’re in, there is a chance you are going to have an accident. Some accidents are worse than others. Below you will find types of accidents and why people become involved in vehicle non-fault accidents.

    Types of vehicle non-fault accidents

    When collisions occur on the roadway or vehicles carrying heavy goods overturn, it may cause a pileup. This is when car after car after car crashes into the other cars. The injuries that happen because of this can be quite serious. There are people who have died because of a pile up. When you have been in this type of accent, you have to find a solicitor who is going to be able to determine who was at fault.

    The Highway Code provides specific guidelines on how to safely overtake another vehicle on a highway. When you’re moving from one lane to another, you have to be careful that you check blind spots, which are areas that you can’t see in the mirrors. A lot of accidents happen because the driver didn’t do this. It’s important to remember that undertaking in the UK is illegal and that is very dangerous to do. Vehicle non-fault accidents happen regularly because of this manoeuvre.

    Heavy goods vehicle accidents

    Vehicles that carry heavy goods – lorries, trucks, buses, wagons, and trailers – are all thought to be slow moving large vehicles. The the drivers of these vehicles have to travel under 60 mph and they can’t overtake in the outer lane, only the central lane. Sometimes there are high winds and these kinds of trucks can be blown over and may cause a very dangerous pileup. Again, this is a situation when you should have a solicitor to help you with your claim.
