I’ve been in a car accident in Sedgemoor
Being involved in a car accident in Sedgemoor does not necessarily mean you were the driver of one of the vehicles involved. Every year in Britain, thousands of people are injured in road traffic accidents as a passenger, driver or pedestrian. Regardless though of whether you were the driver of a vehicle or not, if you were injured through no fault of your own, you could be eligible to make a road traffic accident claim.
Car accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, but chief among them is carelessness by another driver. There are a great number of drivers on the roads of Britain today who are driving without a licence or indeed proper instruction on how to control a motor vehicle.
As the driver of a motor vehicle on the roads of Britain, it is illegal to drive without a valid licence, insurance or proper instruction but that does not stop roughly 1 in every 40 drivers from doing just that. If you have been involved in a car accident in Sedgemoor, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation as your accident may have been caused by that 1 driver in 40.
Knowing how to drive isn’t enough
There are a lot of drivers who don’t have a valid licence. Some drivers have already been disqualified for reckless driving, while others have never bothered to finish their instruction and take the relevant tests.
Before you can take a driving test to gain a licence, you must have passed a theory test, a hazard perception test and have had lessons with a proper instructor. Taking lessons with a member of the family or a friend is not enough to determine if you are a sufficiently good enough driver to be allowed on the road unsupervised.
As a qualified driver yourself, if you have been involved in a car accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim. As the driver of a vehicle who has been driving for some years, experience and time spent behind the wheel may still not be enough to avoid an accident caused by a reckless driver.
