Beith is a small town in the Garnock Valley in North Ayrshire, Scotland, with a population of around 7,000 people. Located approximately 20 miles from Glasgow, 80% of the town’s inhabitants work outside the town. Beith has historical connections to smuggling and developed a reputation for harbouring criminals during the 18th century – in fact, it’s said that there is a tunnel (which could have been used by smugglers) running from Eglinton Street to Kilbirnie Lock.
Whilst you’re unlikely to find the town harbouring unlawful types nowadays, you could still be involved in an accident whilst commuting to work, and if your accident was caused by somebody else, you may need the services of a personal injury lawyer. Due to its rural setting, injury solicitors in Beith may be hard to find – that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help.
Compensated for road accident injuries
If you’ve suffered injuries in a road traffic accident, you deserve to be compensated if somebody else is at fault. But what do we mean when we say somebody else was to blame? 90% of all road traffic accidents are caused by driver error – here are just a few examples of things which could cause an accident on the roads:
- Drivers speeding, particularly in poor weather conditions
- Tailgating, especially in wet or wintry weather
- Ignoring signs and lights, such as a red light
- Distracted drivers using their mobile phone at the wheel, or adjusting their car stereo
- Drivers distracted by children or other passengers
- Cars which are not roadworthy, for example a vehicle which hasn’t passed its MOT
If you’ve been injured and you believe the other driver is to blame, you could make a personal injury claim to their insurer. But don’t waste time hunting for injury solicitors in Beith when you could just get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline instead.
