Has another driver caused you harm?
Unfortunately, with more and more cars on the streets, road traffic accidents seem to occur relatively frequently. As people tend to have more gadgets and devices in their vehicles these days, they may find that it’s easier for them to become distracted or to take their eyes off the road.
If someone is distracted whilst driving, they may hit your car, or a pedestrian, because they aren’t aware of what’s going on around them. In some instances, this may be considered a criminal offence, but either way, you could make a compensation claim against them.
As many areas are now covered by CCTV, there’s a chance that the incident will be caught on videotape. If so, this could constitute useful evidence and your injury solicitor in Penrith could use it to help highlight who caused the incident and who should be liable to pay your compensation.
If you haven’t been able to obtain evidence relating to your claim, there’s no need to worry. Often, an injury solicitor in Penrith or a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you access this so it doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be able to move forward with your claim.
