One of the most common things that happens every year to many different people on the road is that, they are subjected to a scam artist causing an accident. There are four different types of scam accidents that scam artists cause to unsuspecting drivers every year.
T-Bone scam accident can lead to you needing an injury lawyer in Thornton-Cleveleys
This particular accident happens when the scam artist waits for the car you’re driving to go over the junction before jamming on their acceleration, T-boning your vehicle. After the police get there, false witnesses are going to claim you have been the one who ran the red light or stop signal.
Wave scam accident can lead to you needing an injury lawyer in Thornton-Cleveleys
This is something that happens when there’s heavy traffic. The scammer notices you want to change lanes and waves to you to go ahead. When you try to get into the other lane, the scammer then accelerates and collides with your vehicle. After the police get there, the scammer denies their courtesy wave and says it was your fault.
Swoop & Stop scam accident can lead to you needing an injury lawyer in Thornton-Cleveleys
With this scenario, there’s a car that pulls right in front of your vehicle and either squat or stop. Then a second vehicle is going to pull to the left or right of your vehicle which prevents you from swerving. The passengers that are in the first car are then going to file claims for personal injuries.
