In spite of an increase in the amount of traffic on our roads, the number of serious road traffic accidents has reduced slightly in recent years. Cars and roads have both been made safer, but you may still need to make an injury claim in Ravenglass if you are unlucky enough to be injured in a road traffic accident that was the fault of someone else.
Motorways and country lanes
It is easy to assume that the most dangerous roads to be on are our motorways, because of the speeds travelled on them. But this is not the case. On motorways, the traffic is all travelling in the same direction, there are no traffic islands, pelican crossings or traffic lights and any signs are location based and not instructions. If an accident does happen on one of these major roads, it does tend to be serious because often there are several vehicles involved.
However, from a percentage point of view, you are more likely to be injured in an accident on a country lane. This is thought to be because drivers do not take so much care on them. They seem to think they will not meet anyone one else along the way, but of course they do. It could be a vehicle travelling in the other direction, a farm vehicle, horse riders, stray animals or maybe walkers.
Which ever type of road you were injured on though does not matter, you can make an injury claim in Ravenglass, or anywhere else in the UK, as long as:
- The road traffic accident was not your fault
- You were injured in the accident
- Your injuries needed medical attention
- The road traffic accident happened within the last three years
