It is sometimes a good idea to just take a few moments after a car accident in North Lanarkshire to consider what might have caused it. Obviously you will be pre-occupied in deciding if you need any immediate medical attention or whether you should just visit your family General Practitioner at a later stage but if it is at all possible you should also cast your mind back to the few minutes prior to the collision.
Have you considered the possibility that your car accident in North Lanarkshire was caused by someone else. For example, perhaps your car accident in North Lanarkshire was caused by another driver being distracted whilst they were driving.

Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury lawyer can contact them and ask for a witness statement at a later date.
The dangers of using a hand-held phone while driving have been discussed and aired by experts, by drivers and by the media for many years now. There have been literally hundreds of studies aimed at recording the effect that using a hand-held phone can have on driving performance. The results do not always agree on the finer details but, in general, the findings of this type of study indicate that using a hand-held phone has a negative impact on driving performance. Some countries have accepted this viewpoint and have made it illegal to drive and use a mobile phone at the same time. The UK is one of these countries and so driving around Lanarkshire whilst talking on a hand held mobile phone is illegal.
Accident Advice Helpline can take over all of the legal aspects of your personal injury claim. They will set out to prove who was at fault for your accidents – in legal terms this is called establishing liability. Then they will negotiate a sum of money as compensation for your injuries and for all the money that you have lost because you are injured.
