Road traffic accidents affect numerous people each time they occur. It’s easy to think that it is just the two drivers or riders who may be affected, but we often overlook the passengers in the vehicles who may also have been injured in the accident.
Injuries can range from cuts and bruises to muscular problems like whiplash and even skeletal damage and broken bones, even worse. Most accidents are down to the actions of road users who fail to respect the conditions and what is going on around them.
What causes bus accidents in Woking?
Common explanations for road traffic accidents that have resulted in people making an accident injury claim in Woking have included slippery surfaces or reduced visibility caused by the weather, meaning that the offending driver is unable to stop in time.
Some drivers have put it down to using their mobile phones at the wheel, while others have been distracted by something going on inside or outside their vehicle.
Explanations are all well and good, but they don’t help the innocent victims of road traffic accidents to heal any more quickly or to turn the clock back to before the accident.
People’s lives can be changed in an instant because of the actions of road users who cause the crashes. Despite the best efforts of road safety initiatives; accidents are still all too common on British roads and the majority are caused by driver errors.
Motorists are still travelling too quickly, either breaking the speed limit or failing to reduce their speeds and increase their braking distances in poor weather. They are also still checking or using their mobile phones while at the wheel despite the laws and fines in place aimed at stopping people from using their phones while driving.
