Injury lawyers in Sissinghurst
Road traffic accidents on our roads account for far too many deaths and serious injuries, in spite of millions of pounds being spent to improve road safety. In the year to March 2013, nearly 190,000 deaths and serious injuries were reported, and it is estimated that if unreported accidents were in the figures the total number would exceed 500,000.
These accidents happen for many reasons depending on what type of motor vehicles are involved, but a large number of them are because of a lack of concentration or a distraction that takes the attention of the driver. Just a few seconds looking away can be fatal.
If your are involved in a road traffic accident that was the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Sissinghurst.

How accidents happen
Road traffic accidents happen in various ways, partly depending on the type of motor vehicle involved. For instance:
- A motorbike rider could be thrown from his bike by potholes or bad road surfaces and there could be no other vehicle involved;
- Cars trying to overtake before they should are quite a common cause of accidents on our roads;
- Defective brakes on a car can have disastrous effects; and
- Pedestrians or animals on the road can cause vehicles to swerve and create an accident.
These scenarios are just to show how easy it is for things to go wrong, for accidents to happen that cause innocent victims to be injured.
