Broken Traffic Lights and Claiming Compensation

We often think about road traffic accidents as a collision between two vehicles due to the carelessness of one of the drivers, or an accident between a vehicle and pedestrian. In some cases, though, a road traffic accident may be the result of broken traffic lights which cause a collision, leading to an injury for one or both drivers/pedestrians. If you have been involved in an accident due to broken traffic lights and you have been injured as a result, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim Skegness.


The injuries which are sustained as a result of broken traffic lights will depend on the impact of the collision. It may be minor injuries such as a cut or bruise but could be a lot more serious, including head injuries or broken bones. Road traffic accidents can even lead to fatalities in some cases. If you have been involved in this kind of accident, you should always seek medical attention in the first instance, even if you think your injuries are minor.

Other forms of evidence will include copies of your medical records and any forms of treatment you have received. If you have the chance, it is a good idea to take photos at the time of the accident.

Who is to Blame?
