Careless driving – make a claim if you have been a victim
There are many accidents that occur on the roads each year due to unavoidable circumstances.
However, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, a number occur due to nothing more than drivers being “careless, reckless or in a hurry”. In fact, it is thought that these motorists result in the deaths of over 300 people a year in the UK.
Failing to indicate, erratic manoeuvring, speeding, driving whilst distracted and other forms of careless driving can lead to serious injuries, such as those affecting the head, neck or spine. In many cases, the injuries may be less severe, but still the cause of chronic pain.
An injury can cause inconvenience, and often mean the victim is rendered to taking time off work to recover. This can in turn affect his or her household income, making it difficult to pay everyday bills, let alone bills for medical care.
