Road traffic accidents are among the most common of accidents in the UK, with nearly 190,000 of them being reported as involving serious injuries or deaths last year. If any of those injured were in a road traffic accident that someone else caused, they might want to consider making an injury claim in Great Missenden.
The causes of road traffic accidents
Most road traffic accidents are caused by a driver error of some sort, and could be because of:
- Exceeding the speed limits
- Jumping red traffic lights
- Not giving way at junctions or traffic islands
- Overtaking when it is not safe to
- Not concentrating on their driving
- Not obeying road signs
- Misjudging the speeds or intentions of other vehicles
- Road rage
If more drivers took more care, there would be a lot less road traffic accidents, perhaps 5 people a days would not lose their lives, and fewer innocent victims would be making an injury claim in Great Missenden.
