Considering the amount of traffic, there are surprisingly few road traffic accidents in Greater London involving cars. The accidents are more likely to be with commercial vehicles, bicycles, motorbikes or HGV’s, and if the smallest of these, the bicycle and the largest, the HGV were to meet each other in a collision, the cyclist would be very lucky to survive.
HGV meets cycle, and creates Greater London car accident claims
HGV’s are more likely to be in an accident on the streets of somewhere like Greater London than they are on motorways or A roads. This is because of all the tight twists and bends they encounter, and the sheer size of them means that they do not always see someone that is behind them, and perhaps caught between them and a wall, or between them and another vehicle. In recent years, several cyclists have lost their lives in this way in Greater London, and the bereaved families would have been entitled to make Greater London car accident claims for fatal injuries.
Other vehicles that have the same problem
It is not just HGV’s that have this problem. Buses and coaches and any large commercial vehicle can find themselves in the same situation. Although the drivers are highly skilled, and do not injure people on purpose, this does not diminish the right to compensation.
Most accidents are not caused purposely, but are usually because someone is negligent or reckless, and if they realised the way they were going to ruin peoples lives, they might think twice about behaving this way.
