One of the most common reasons people find themselves making Blaenavon no win no fee compensation claims is after they have been injured in road traffic accidents. Unfortunately, it is perhaps little surprise that so many people are injured in such accidents each year as there are increasing numbers of us taking to the roads. It doesn’t matter if you are driving a car, riding on a bus or even cycle around – everyone is potentially at risk of being involved in an accident. If that accident was not their fault, then they could legally be entitled to make a Blaenavon no win no fee compensation claim.
While Accident Advice Helpline specialises in helping people make their Blaenavon no win no fee compensation, we would still like to see a situation where less people are being injured as a result of accidents that were not their fault. In order for this to happen, it is important that people remind themselves of the ways in which they can help reduce the risk of accident.
Cyclists are arguably the most at risk road users due to the limited protection they are afforded during an accident. This often means that any Blaenavon no win no fee compensation claims they make tend to be for severe injuries, and occasionally they are actually made by family members following a fatality.
In order to reduce the number of Blaenavon no win no fee compensation claims being made by cyclists, it is essential to remind all road users of the need to double check for cyclists before making a turn or another manoeuvre. Cyclists should also ensure that they are keeping to cycle paths and lanes where appropriate, and they are wearing the necessary personal protection equipment to keep them as safe as possible. This can include hi-vis outer wear to make them more visible, especially during the darker nights and mornings.
Public transport also plays a role in ensuring that the number of Blaenavon no win no fee compensation claims can be reduced. As well as ensuring that drivers are fully trained, it is the responsibility of managers to ensure that buses and coaches are only out on the roads when it is safe for them to do so. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have worked on claims resulting from coaches being tipped over in extreme wind conditions on motorways – these accidents could easily be prevented if trips were cancelled.
