    The unexpected nature of car collisions in Taunton Deane

    Car collisions in Taunton Deane can happen anytime and without prior warning. There are reasons however as to why they happen, the number one being human error. If you are making a car accident compensation claim against a third party, you must prove that they were in the wrong. This can be quite complicated in many instances needing you to get advice after a car accident in Taunton Deane from Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury solicitors. Most car accidents are caused as a result of:

    • Perception of risk – (e.g. driving under the influence of alcohol or/and drugs, mobile phone use and eating and drinking), the speed of the car, the volume of traffic and the make and model of the car
    • Pedestrian behaviour – jaywalking, alcohol consumption, perception of crossing devices, perception of enforcement risks, unawareness of traffic laws
    • Physical environment – lack of crossing devices, lack of roadblock crossing, poorly timed signals, poor sidewalks, absence of sidewalks and the capacity of sidewalks
    • Special conditions – weather, people with limited mobility, occupational risks, children and teenage drivers, shopping centres, construction, major highways, one way streets, location of attractions, unlawful vending

    • Not leave the scene of the accident unless you are severely injured and need immediate treatment
    • Share contacts with the other party that includes phone numbers, names, addresses, insurance details and car registration numbers
    • Take down any witness contact information
