Has a new road layout caused you to crash?
In order for drivers to be able to navigate our road systems, it is necessary for local councils to place a significant number of signs next to the roads. When there are ample signs in place, drivers are aware of the road layout and can adjust their journey accordingly.
However, if local councils fail to place enough signs on the roads, use the wrong signs or do not repair damaged signs, it can lead to chaos. Without adequate signage, drivers are simply unable to navigate the roads appropriately and this can lead to an increased amount of road traffic accidents.
Although road traffic accidents and collisions can be caused in numerous ways, inadequate signage is one of them and, if used properly, it would be a relatively easy way to reduce the number of road traffic accidents occurring on Britain’s roads.
Can I make a claim with an injury solicitor in Maryport?
If you’ve been hurt whilst on the road, an injury solicitor in Maryport could help you to make a claim for compensation, providing you weren’t responsible for the injuries.
Although you’ll be able to make a claim with an injury solicitor in Maryport if you were driving at the time you were injured, a passenger, pedestrian or even a cyclist could also make a claim if they were hurt in the incident as well.
Whilst the council may be responsible for your injuries if they didn’t maintain the road properly, it may be that another driver has caused the incident. If another driver is responsible for your injuries, you could still make a claim and an injury solicitor in Maryport could help you to pursue them for compensation.
Before you commit to making a compensation claim, however, you may want to know more about how much compensation you could be awarded when you make a claim.
In order to help potential claimants find this out, we’ve introduced our 30-second test. This is a quick and easy way to find out how much compensation you could be awarded and, as it takes your injuries into account, it provides an good estimate of possible compensation awards.
