Most car accident claims in Barrhead and indeed anywhere here in the UK, (over 80% of accidents in fact) are put down to driver error. Driver error covers a multitude of sins, but one of the most inexcusable is drivers being distracted for any number of reasons. If you’re thinking of making car accident claims in Barrhead as a result of such an accident, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make your claim.
People take driving for granted
Driving a car is so commonplace that most people simply take it for granted. When beginners are still taking lessons, or have just passed their driving tests they focus their attention 100% on their driving. However, gaining experience can be something of a double-edged sword. You become more “road savvy”. But eventually driving becomes somewhat automatic, and that’s when drivers let their guards down and distraction is allowed to creep in.
Instead of concentrating on driving, drivers’ minds begin to wander. What will I be eating tonight? What’s on TV tonight? What have I got to do when I get to work? There are myriad things that pop into our minds and pose some sort of distraction. Glancing at the sat nav, retuning the radio, selecting a particular track on the CD player; all of these things distract from keeping an eye on the road and concentrating on driving. Such distraction can cause car accident claims in Barrhead as a result of innocent people being injured as a result – either other drivers, passengers in vehicles or pedestrians.
Car accident claims in Barrhead caused by slow driver reaction times
When a driver’s attention is distracted, reaction times plummet. They can be diminished by as much as 50% and that is more than enough to cause an accident. Car accident claims in Barrhead that relate to incidences of driver distraction often involve serious injuries for accident victims. If you’ve been seriously hurt through no fault of your own and you’re wondering much compensation you might win if you were to launch a claim, you can find out by going to Accident Advice Helpline’s website.
The HOW MUCH compensation calculator we have on our website will do two things for you. It will indicate whether or not your claim is likely to be a legitimate one; and it will show you how much compensation is typically awarded for the type of injury you’ve suffered according to the “Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases”, a document created by the Judicial Studies Board. All you need do is answer 4 questions about your injury and you’ll be given your figure. This figure is only an estimate as everyone’s situation is unique, but it can give you some reassurance that you have a worthwhile claim. It only takes about 30 seconds on average.
