HGV and car accident claims in Doncaster
Being involved in a car accident with a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) can be a terrifying experience with serious repercussions.
Although drivers of lorries and other oversized vehicles undergo extensive training, driver error and negligence can still cause serious accidents. The size and weight of these vehicles coupled with speed can mean that when they come into contact with cars, the drivers and passengers are seriously injured.
If you have been in such a collision and can prove the HGV driver was negligent, and that you were in no way at fault, you could be able to make a compensation claim. As a top personal injury law firm, Accident Advice Helpline is able to provide assistance with HGV and car accident claims in Doncaster. We have over 190 in-house solicitors that can provide affordable legal representation, fighting hard to make sure you are paid out a sum commensurate to the injuries you have sustained.
We can provide assistance you can count on
There can be many forms of driver negligence that cause an accident, such as:
- Driving whilst fatigued/falling asleep at the wheel
- Failing to look or signal
- Aggressive driving
- Failing to leave a substantial safety gap
- Driving while distracted/operating a hand held device
If the operator of an HGV has exhibited any of these or other reckless behaviours while driving, you should be compensated for the damage they have done. If your accident took place within the past three years, you could be within your legal rights to make car accident claims in Doncaster.
To find out how much you could be entitled to receive, give our helpline a call. We have a team of claims advisers that are able to provide honest analysis of your claim, taking into consideration a number of factors to determine how much you could be owed. These factors include not just the physical and emotional injuries you have sustained, but the financial and long-term impact of the accident.
For many people, a claim involving serious injuries can result in thousands of pounds being awarded. At Accident Advice Helpline, we take great pride in helping to award £30 million to no-fault accident victims a year, and we will strive to recover the best possible sum for you in the wake of an HGV accident.
