    Making an injury claim in Skirlaugh

    Have you been involved in a road traffic accident?

    A road traffic accident is defined as an accident that occurs on a road or in a place where the public has access, including bridleways and footpaths.  If an accident happens to you on one of these, you may be able to make an injury claim. Read on to discover more about making an injury claim in Skirlaugh.

    Making an injury claim in Skirlaugh

    When a road accident occurs involving a collision with another vehicle, it is not always straightforward to ascertain liability for the accident. Sometimes it may be obvious who was at fault and sometimes it can lead to a dispute.  If a vehicle runs into the back of the vehicle in front, then the vehicle behind is said to be at fault.  This is because the law states that there must be the adequate driving distance between you and the car in front.  This applies even if the vehicle in front stops suddenly.

    Many road accidents involve collisions with stationary objects such as road works, parked vehicles, and street furniture.  In cases where road works are in the carriageway, they should be clearly signed and well lit. Parked vehicles should not be left on a sharp bend or in a dangerous position.  Where possible, the parking light should be left on the vehicle to inform other road users of its position to avoid a collision.

    If you have suffered an accident with a parked or stationary object, then make sure that you find out the legal owner of the vehicle or contractor as soon as possible, as if you have sustained an injury, then you could pursue an injury claim. Accident Advice Helpline can assist when it comes to making an injury claim in Skirlaugh.

    Seeking professional advice when you need it most

    If the circumstances of the accident are not clear and liability is an issue, then you will need to seek professional and legal advice to clarify the matter as this can affect your right to claim compensation.  Where possible, obtain the details of any witnesses to assist in clarifying the matter.  If, however, you have suffered an injury as a result of the accident, and liability is clearly the fault of the other party, then you can proceed with making an injury claim in Skirlaugh.  Simply call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 from your landline.  This 24-hour helpline is staffed with friendly and helpful, fully trained advisors who can answer your queries quickly and efficiently over the phone.
