Has another driver caused an accident?
When you are driving or in charge of a vehicle, you can ensure that you drive safely and that you don’t risk, in Chelmsford, an accident or harming any other road users. However, when you’re on the road, you can’t be responsible for every other driver.
If another driver or road user is driving carelessly or not paying proper attention to the road, they could cause a collision and you could be hurt as a result. In some instances, their conduct may even constitute a criminal offence. If, for example, the person who caused the Chelmsford accident was talking on the phone at the time of the incident or had consumed alcohol before getting into the vehicle, they may be charged with an offence by the police.
Even if the person responsible hasn’t committed a criminal offence, they could still be held responsible for any injuries which occur as a result of their conduct. If, for example, they pulled out in front of you or drove in the back of your car and the accident was clearly their fault, you could make a compensation claim against them.
If you were carrying passengers in your vehicle at the time of the incident, they may also be able to make a claim for compensation if they suffered injuries. It is always worth seeking legal advice in Chelmsford after an accident has occurred.
