Distracted drivers are often left defending Gwynedd compensation claims
We have all been warned about the dangers of driving whilst distracted. Campaigns to move away from using the mobile phone without a hands-free kit, criminal charges being brought against individuals who text whilst driving, and even the first case being made against someone for using interactive glasses all serve to highlight the dangers.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident which you feel was caused by someone who was driving whilst distracted for whatever reason, then you could be entitled to make a Gwynedd compensation claim.
When it comes to driving, there are a whole host of distractions that could give rise to a road traffic accident, therefore resulting in a Gwynedd compensation claim.
Over the years, Accident Advice Helpline have helped a host of people make successful claims for Gwynedd compensation against the individuals who were responsible for their accidents, and therefore their injuries.
One of the most common types of distractions when it comes to making a Gwynedd compensation claim involves technology. It may be that someone was distracted whilst programming or altering their sat nav. Our solicitors have also assisted with claims brought against drivers who were wrongly directed by their sat nav, and who failed to exercise suitable logic.
Children also present their own distraction, posing issues for the driver of any vehicle. It can be difficult to concentrate properly on the rules of the road when someone is kicking the back of your seat, or demanding to listen to “ten green bottles” on the CD player for the 50th time in one journey. While such drivers may feel that the accident was not entirely their fault, the simple fact remains that the person who is injured and bringing the claim to court was also not to blame. It was not their car; it was not their child; it was not their fault.
Our solicitors have extensive experience in helping people win the Gwynedd compensation to which they are entitled when it comes to these sorts of accidents. As a result, you can be confident that you will receive the very best in support and legal guidance throughout the process of your claim.
We are even able to offer you free, no-obligation advice before you decide to initiate your compensation claim. If you contact us on our freephone helpline, which is available every day of the week. Just dial 0800 689 0500 from your land line, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile.
If you simply want to find out whether or not you qualify to make a claim for compensation, then you can take our 30-second test instead. This will also tell you how much compensation you might be entitled to receive.
