It’s a comforting thought that injuries on UK roads from crashes and collisions involving both vehicles and pedestrians have dropped dramatically since 1999, by 40 to 50 percent in fact. Driver error is still the main cause of road traffic accidents, or RTAs as they’re known. Whilst there remain drivers out there ready to take risks on our highways having little regard for the safety of others let alone their own, then personal injuries and fatalities will continue.
There will always be casualties from driver negligence and incompetence, just as accidents in general will happen, despite all precautions taken to avoid such.
If you’ve been a victim of an RTA which was not your fault and received injuries as a result, then call us. Accident Advice Helpline is the right law firm to turn to for assistance in making a casualty claim. We have no-win, no-fee lawyers working for our firm, among them law experts with a comprehensive knowledge of the personal injury claim process where it relates to casualty claim victims.
The claim process can start by calling us. Matters discussed with a member of our friendly team will be totally confidential and you’ll certainly be under no obligation to continue.
Our advisor will need to clarify, through our 30-second test, three essentials. That the accident happened within the last 3 years, it was not your fault and that you received medical attention for your injuries.
Invariably, a casualty claim can result from someone’s dangerous driving. Motorists going too fast and not paying enough attention to road conditions, to markings, not heeding traffic restrictions in place to ensure safe movement of vehicles and in ignoring safety lighting and signage.
Figures and data gathered by Accident Advice Helpline over fifteen years in the business show that parking in restricted areas and not using box junctions correctly often lead to RTAs involving drivers, passengers and in urbanised areas, people on foot just trying to cross the road safely.
Box junction markings and Keep Clear warnings are there for a specific reason – to keep everyone safe and when they’re ignored or abused, people get injured. If a motorist becomes a road traffic accident casualty because he stopped somewhere he shouldn’t have done, and then was hit by another vehicle, any judge would rule that he was largely or completely at fault.
However, if you became the victim of that person’s recklessness behaviour, the judge would look favourably on your casualty claim handled by your Accident Advice Helpline legal representative and award the highest compensation payout.
Remember, do keep all your receipts and a record of your expenditure on things like prescriptions, medical treatment, travel, hire care costs and so on, because money you may have paid out as part of your casualty claim will be reimbursed if you win.
