    Car accident in Broxburn

    Car accident in Broxburn

    A car accident in Broxburn can be caused by a number of different factors. Accident Advice Helpline comes across all sorts of reasons for accidents when we are providing legal representation for someone who has been injured in a car accident in Broxburn that was not their own fault. We set out to prove who was to blame for the accident and negotiate a sum of compensation for the client. One of the common reasons behind a car accident in Broxburn is driver distraction.

    The reasons behind a car accident in Broxburn – visual driver distraction

    This is when a driver is not fully concentrating on driving because they are also doing something else at the same time. Visual driver distraction could cause a car accident in Broxburn in any one of three ways:

    1. The first form of visual distraction is caused by the driver’s visual field being blocked by something on or near the windscreen. Commonly, Accident Advice Helpline finds that this is often stickers on the car’s windscreen or windows or dark window tints. The result is that the driver is prevented from detecting or recognising objects or hazards in the road environment.
    2. The second type of visual distraction that could cause a car accident in Broxburn occurs when the driver does not look at the road because they are focusing on something else for an extended period of time. This could be either inside or outside the car. An example of an in-car visual distraction would be an in-car route navigation system whereas an example of an outside visual distraction would be a poster on a shop window.
    3. The third type of visual distraction involves a loss of visual “attentiveness”. This happens when a driver looks but does not see what is going on because they are not really paying attention to what they are looking at. The driver’s ability to recognise hazards in the road is decreased significantly.
