Bassetlaw is one of several districts in Nottinghamshire. It lies within central England and around 114,000 people live here. It is one of the bigger districts in the county, and covers two main towns and many rural areas. Although the area is more rural than other areas of the county, there is still the occasional Bassetlaw car accident that can potentially happen.
Car accidents occur on all manner of different roads, in many assorted situations, and usually when you least expect it, too. There are many accidents that do not result in any injuries, other than a mild feeling of shock, which is to be expected – and very different from medical shock, as well. But if you are hurt, you might well wonder whether you could secure some compensation if someone else caused your accident to happen.
Experiencing a Bassetlaw car accident at traffic lights
Every driver should be more than familiar with traffic lights. They are installed at junctions to help control the flow of traffic, and to make it safer for people to navigate that junction. Without them, there could potentially be an increase in accidents. However, even when traffic lights are installed, some drivers try to ‘jump’ those lights to save a few seconds on their journey. Unfortunately, there are occasions when they end up causing an accident, because someone else drives through a green light only to find themselves hit by someone trying to drive through a red light.
If this happens to you, make sure you swap details as you should by law. There could well be witnesses to what occurred, and other evidence – perhaps from CCTV cameras – that will help you prove you were not to blame for the accident. This evidence can be used to help you claim compensation if you received injuries in the crash. If you did, make sure you get them seen to, either by your GP, or at a casualty unit. This provides further proof of what happened and the extent of the injuries you suffered from.
