Do you need to contact Barrhead accident claim solicitors after being hurt by a dangerous driver?
When people drive on public roads, they are expected to meet a certain standard and to follow the Highway Code. By ensuring that every driver has passed both their theoretical and practical driving test, the Government hopes to increase safety standards on Britain’s roads and prevent accidents from occurring.
Although most drivers take safety very seriously, there are still some drivers who continue to drive in a dangerous or unsafe way. They may attempt to rush through red lights or use a mobile phone at the wheel, for example. If drivers are distracted, or if they wilfully take risks whilst in charge of a vehicle, they could cause a serious accident. In addition to putting their own lives at risk, they also risk the lives of their passengers, other road users and nearby pedestrians.
When a genuine accident occurs on the roads, people aren’t normally prosecuted. Although those affected could still make a compensation claim with Barrhead accident claim solicitors, the person responsible won’t normally face a criminal charge. However, if someone has been driving dangerously, the police may arrest them. If they have caused an accident or have collided with another vehicle, it’s likely that they will be charged and prosecuted in the courts.
If you have been hurt because of a dangerous driver and the police are involved, this won’t prevent you from making a compensation claim with Barrhead accident claim solicitors. In fact, it might make it easier for your Barrhead accident claim solicitors to prove that the incident wasn’t your fault. Once you’ve done this, it’s likely that you will be awarded compensation for your injuries.
