A personal injury lawyer must establishes who or what caused your accident
There are hundreds of road traffic accidents in Wales every day, yet every accident is unique. Some element of one of the following (or a combination of them) are found in most accidents:
- Speed – the physics of this is so simple. Driving too fast means that you cannot slow down quickly. Sadly, thousands of us forget this and drive too fast every day.
- Drugs and alcohol – when we take drugs or consume alcohol we are definitely more likely to cause a road traffic accident because we are not completely in control of the car – even if we think we are.
- Poor observation – observation is vital for good driving because you have to anticipate what may happen ahead of you. You should spot a car at a junction in case it pulls out in front of you. You should spot a toddler on the pavement in case he or she runs onto the road.
- Driving too close to the car in front – if there is only a small gap between you and the car in front you are more likely to hit it. It’s that simple!
- Distraction – driving is not a part-time activity. When you are driving it should be taking up 100% of your concentration. If you are doing, or thinking, about something else, you will miss something on the road.
- Fatigue – a tired driver does not observe the road properly and does not react as quickly as a driver that is alert. Terrible accidents have been caused by drivers who have fallen asleep at the wheel.
- Impatience – modern life is fast-paced. However, impatience when driving can make you aggressive and impulsive. Aggressive, impulsive drivers cause accidents.
