Has a learner driver caused a Christchurch accident?
When a road traffic accident or a Christchurch accident occurs it can have very serious consequences indeed. In addition to causing serious injuries, some road traffic accidents can cause fatalities so it’s important that drivers take extra care when driving.
If you’re learning to drive or you’ve recently passed your test, you may feel particularly vulnerable on the roads and you may even feel more at risk of suffering a Christchurch accident. If you’re learning to drive with a professional instructor, they may be able to prevent a Christchurch accident from occurring if it was likely too.
As most professional instructor cars have dual control, the instructor is normally able to perform an emergency stop to avoid a Christchurch accident if it is necessary. However, if you choose to learn to drive in a standard car, you’ll want to practice in a secluded area to try and limit the chances of a Christchurch accident occurring.
Do you need advice on claiming?
Although many people assume that new drivers are more likely to cause a Christchurch accident, this isn’t always true. In fact, any type of driver could potentially cause a Christchurch accident on the roads so it’s important to take additional care whilst driving.
If you are struck by a learner or a new driver, you could still make a claim against them in the same way you could against a more experienced driver. Providing you can show that they caused the Christchurch accident and that the incident wasn’t your fault, it’s likely that you’ll be able to obtain compensation for the injuries you sustained and we may be able to help you!Open Claim Calculator
