With thousands of motorists passing through the West Yorkshire region each day; accidents are highly likely to occur despite our best efforts. While many of us will focus on obeying the speed limits and keeping our distance, other drivers fail to do so and this puts all other road users at risk. It is these actions that make an accident injury claim almost an inevitability with many motorists suffering severe injuries through no fault of their own. We are here for you when you need access to compensation claim lawyers in West Yorkshire.
It isn’t just the major road networks such as the A1, M1 or M62 that frequently witness road traffic accidents; plenty of ‘smaller’ roads play host to severe road traffic accidents which leave innocent victims with significant injuries.
Road traffic accidents can be covered by a variety of categories from those caused by the behaviour of road users to genuine errors on the part of the driver.
In recent years the number of motorists making an accident injury claim in West Yorkshire has remained alarmingly high, showing that road safety initiatives are having an effect, but not to such an extent that drivers change their ways.
Driver errors causing accidents – talk to compensation claim lawyers in West Yorkshire today
The majority of road traffic accidents are caused by the actions of drivers. While the weather and road conditions may contribute, it is the driver in both of those instances who has the power to prevent accidents by changing how they drive.
Even when visibility and grip are reduced, drivers still drive too quickly for the conditions and they are unable to bring their vehicle to a stop before they hit another vehicle that may be braking up ahead.
This can mean that the innocent driver in front is left with injuries including cuts and bruises, whiplash or even broken bones that they were powerless to prevent.
The other driver, however, would have been able to prevent the crash if they were travelling more slowly and they were anticipating a hazard in the difficult conditions.
