Have you been injured on the roads?
Rear-end shunts are some of the most common types of road traffic accidents on our roads. Vehicles may be driving too close together, leaving insufficient distances between them and the vehicle in front. If vehicles ahead are forced to brake suddenly, or there is a change in road signals such as traffic lights, then vehicles that are driven with insufficient stopping distances may not be able to halt their vehicles before colliding with the vehicle in front.
This type of collision is known as a rear-end shunt, and may involve two or more vehicles. The likelihood of multiple vehicles becoming involved in a rear-end shunt is more likely to occur on a dual carriageway or motorway, where there is a higher volume of traffic heading in one direction. Any sudden change of lanes or speeds can result in multiple rear-end shunts occurring.
If you have been hit by another vehicle in a rear-end shunt that occurred as a result of no fault of your own within the last 3 years’, then you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your injury. If so, injury solicitors in Humberside could be able to help you to take legal action.
