    Road traffic accidents are abundant on UK roads, although the numbers have dropped since the 1980’s when there were fewer vehicles on the roads.  !5 deaths a day were the average then, now it is 5. This is partly due to the fact of how much safer the cars of today are, partly due to better driving tuition and stricter tests and partly due to safer roads.

    Even so there were still nearly 190,000 reported accidents last year last involved death or serious injury, the most common cause being cited as a lack of concentration on the part of drivers.

    If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you should be speaking to injury solicitors in Downe about making a personal injury claim.

    Injury solicitors in Downe and the differing causes of road traffic accidents

    Every accident is different and there are many different causes as to why they happen, just a few reasons might be:

    • Potholes that should have been repaired
    • Bad road surfaces
    • Pedestrians being knocked over
    • Car doors being opened onto cyclists and motorbikes
    • Drivers not concentrating, perhaps tuning their radio or something similar
    • Drivers falling asleep at the wheel
    • Road rage

    Why the accident happened does not matter too much if you were the innocent victim.  Any accident will be traumatic as well as potentially causing you physical injuries, and this will all be accounted for when you make your claim with injury solicitors Downe.

    Making a claim for a road traffic accident

    For many victims the last thing on their mind in the aftermath of the accident will be their finances. But what if their injuries are so severe they cannot return to work, or what if their recovery time is months – they will still have bills to pay and will still want to eat.  At some point they will have to address the matter and that is when they should contact Accident Advice Helpline.
