    Car Accident Claims in Viewpark

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Viewpark

    Car accident claims in Viewpark don’t happen with any more frequency than anywhere else in the UK. However, there are still too many for comfort. The first fatality caused by a car accident happened in London back in 1896. In response the coroner at the time said, “this must not happen again.” An admirable sentiment, but since then, there are have been over 25 million RTA related deaths according to figures issued WHO (World Health Authority).

    1.2 million killed on the worlds roads every year

    Although vehicle safety technology marches on, the numbers of people killed in automobile accidents still continues to rise. Approximately 1.2 million people are killed on the world’s roads each and every year. This number is expected to rise by a further 65% by the year 2020, according to reports by both the WHO and the World Bank.

    The main cause of RTAs is driver error

    The reason that the increase in vehicle safety technology has had little impact on the rising rate of RTA related injuries is the fact that the biggest contributor in most cases is driver error. It accounts for over 80% of all RTAs here in the UK. The main types of errors include:

    • Driver distraction
    • Driver fatigue
    • Driving under the influence of alcohol
    • Exceeding speed limits
    • Driving overly aggressively
    • Not driving appropriately taking into account local weather conditions

    Errors of Judgment

    One of the biggest errors, (and this applies to pedestrians as well as motorists) is failing to judge the speed or trajectory of vehicles. It accounts for somewhere in the region of 19% of all RTAs and 12 % of all RTA related fatalities. Although drivers of all types share this difficulty, it is slightly more prevalent in the elderly.

    Taking the 30 second test for a car accident claim in Viewpark

    If you are involved in an accident in which you were injured and it was caused by another driver’s error of judgment, you may have a legitimate claim for injury compensation as long as you were not also to blame. If you were speeding or driving aggressively, this could compromise your situation. Why not take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test?
