Many of the car accident claims in Alloa that Accident Advice Helpline fight for injury victims are blamed on the recklessness and carelessness of young male drivers. If you’ve been hurt in any sort of accident and someone else is to blame you will be entitled to financial compensation. The no-win, no-fee injury claim process that we offer here at Accident Advice Helpline is one of the best ways of obtaining the money you are owed. We’re not talking about “ambulance chasing” here. We’re talking about your rights. That’s why Dame Esther Rantzen unreservedly recommends the service we offer.
69% of banned, new drivers are males under 25 years of age
Accidents and injuries caused by young male divers have become a serious concern in road safety circles. In a effort to bring this under some sort of control, new drivers who collect 6 points or more on their licenses within their first 2 years of driving are automatically banned. The reason that young drivers have gained such a bad reputation is that of the 48,983 drivers who received these automatic bans, 33,910 were young males under the age of 25; that’s over 69%. Only 21% of drivers banned in this way were women.
400 deaths per annum due to speeding
The way that most young drivers rack up their 6 points is through speeding offences. Each offence is normally worth 3 points but can be awarded more depending on the actual speed the offence was recorded at, and the circumstances surrounding the event, (built-up area, time of day, etc.). Although Road Traffic Accident deaths are coming down year by year, the average number due to speeding is 400 per annum.
Size of compensation awards for car accident claims in Alloa
The amount of compensation that gets awarded for the car accident claims in Alloa depends on the nature and severity of the injuries. Award amounts vary anywhere from around £600 for minor hand injuries with a recovery time of a few months, to £222,000 for brain damage injuries and injuries causing complete blindness and deafness.
Life changing injuries that cause loss of earnings are awarded the highest sums. Whatever your injury, you can get an idea of how much compensation you could be due by using the compensation calculator that you’ll find on our website. It only requires about 30 seconds of your time.
Is someone else to blame for the accident?
In order to qualify for compensation, the blame for the accident that causes your injury has to be attributable to a third party. The injury must also have taken place within the past three years.
