    Top Causes of Road Traffic Accidents: Part 1

    If you have been the innocent victim of a road traffic accident, you may need the help of our injury solicitor in Carnwath to get you the compensation you not only deserve but need to be able to adapt to your new life.

    But, what are the main causes of road traffic accidents?

    In this two part article, we look at three main causes of road traffic accidents and how, in each case, one our legal teams, such as the one headed by an injury solicitor in Carnwath, can help you:

    SPEED

    Undoubtedly, speeding in one of the main contributory factors to many accidents across the UK. On its own, it is a factor that can lead to people being killed or seriously hurt. Frequently, speeding is accompanied by other contributing factors such as age of the driver, road condition as well as the prevailing weather conditions at the time.

    But, here at AAH, we can tell you that collisions between vehicles do not need to happen at speed to have huge impacts of people lives; the slowest contact between vehicles can lead to some of the biggest impacting injuries.

    If speed was a factor in an accident that involved you as an innocent party, then our injury solicitor in Carnwath could help you claim compensation.

    DRINK DRIVING

    Despite media campaigns and the social dislike of drink driving, it still happens. What can add insult to injury in accidents involving a drunk driver is that they often walk away with a scratch or two, whilst the innocent party – you, the victim – can be seriously hurt. It is true to say, that many a family have had the awful news of a death of a loved one in such an accident as this.

    If you were hurt in an accident of this type or, your next of kin was tragically killed, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. For more information, call AAH on 0800 689 0500.

    NOT WEARING A SEAT BELT

    Unfortunately, this is probably one incident in which our injury solicitor in Carnwath would not be able to help. Wearing a seat belt whether a passenger or a driver of a vehicle is a legal requirement here in the UK. If you were involved in an accident, that was not your fault but you were not wearing a seatbelt, unless this seat belt was not provided or it was faulty, then your claim for compensation may not be fruitful.

    No matter how you were hurt – whether this was in a traffic accident or not – our injury solicitor in Carnwath may be able to help. Call us on 0800 689 0500 to find out more.
