It is estimated that driver distraction accounts for almost a quarter of all accidents on the UK roads.
Driving whilst using devices such as mobiles is an offence, and if you’ve been injured in an accident caused by a motorist that has done exactly that, you could be entitled to claim compensation. That said, it doesn’t have to be the use of a handheld device that leads to the accident.
Eating and drinking, using a satellite navigation system or even using the radio or CD player; all of these things distract drivers from paying full attention on the roads, and as a result, accidents can happen quickly and leave the innocent victim nursing serious injuries. If you’ve been in injured in a public place in Gloucester and it was caused due to driver distraction, you could potentially stand to receive hundreds if not thousands of pounds in a payout – and Accident Advice Helpline can help.
