An injured person can call Accident Advice Helpline anytime and ask for help in starting a claim for compensation for the injuries that they have suffered in an accident that was not their own fault. A personal injury lawyer in Calderdale can help you to claim for the injuries themselves and for money that the injuries have cost you. The legal term for this is ‘out of pocket expenses’ and in practice it is for things like loss of earnings and extra bills for child care, household help and personal care.
It is a sad fact that many car accidents are caused by young drivers. Therefore, your personal injury lawyer in Calderdale will be making a claim from a young driver’s car insurance policy.
The high number of car accidents caused by young drivers is a national problem. Therefore, there have been many suggestions as to how this can be rectified.
How young drivers could avoid claims by a personal injury lawyer in Calderdale – driver training
One suggestion is the introduction of ‘pre-driving’ training courses. These are available in many locations around the country – mainly in towns and cities. They are for young people who are under 17 years of age and who cannot therefore drive legally on the public roads. The courses focus heavily on attitudes and risk awareness as well as legal issues. The young drivers gain valuable experience in how to control a car. The hope is that the participants will gain an understanding of the risks involved in driving and can develop a positive attitude towards road safety before they even get on to the road.
However, some critics have raised concerns about the courses. They believe that the courses allow a young person to perfect their driving ability before they even get onto the public roads. Therefore, they are able to pass their driving test very quickly – perhaps with very little experience.
As a result, some experts have called for further research into these courses in order to find out exactly what should be taught in them. Research may be needed to understand fully how best to deliver the courses so that young people adopt the attitudes and behaviours that were planned. Young people who live in agricultural and rural areas often gain experience in driving farm vehicles on private land before they are old enough to get on the roads. The pre-driver courses are at least offering young city drivers the same opportunities with additional input from a driving professional.
