There are thousands of road traffic accidents every week in the UK, and the most common cause of them appears to be the lack of concentration of the drivers. Looking the wrong way for just a few seconds is all it takes to cause an accident in which someone else is injured, and they would be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Oxford against the driver.
If this has happened to you, have a chat with Accident Advice Helpline about making your personal injury claim in Oxford, as we are a specialist law firm with over 14 years experience of making successful claims.
The stupidity of drivers that causes accidents and a personal injury claim in Oxford
The stupidity of some drivers is unbelievable, as is the things some drivers try to do while they are in charge of a motor vehicle. It s not unusual for them to be:
- Reading a map
- Doing their hair
- Tuning their radio
- Changing a cd
- Adjusting their seat
- Using their mobile
- Eating and drinking
- Reading a newspaper
Driving a vehicle is something that needs concentration, and every time drivers do something they shouldn’t they are putting the lives of others at risk, not just themselves.
The other causes of road traffic accidents
There are of course other reasons that road traffic accidents happen, it could be because of:
- Not obeying road signs
- Jumping red traffic lights
- Impatient overtaking before they should
- Potholes and bad road surfaces
- Defects on a vehicle
No doubt there are other causes of road traffic accidents, but the whole point is, if you were injured in one that was not your own fault, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Oxford for compensation.
