Isles of Scilly road traffic accidents


If you’re one of the people who have been injured in Isles of Scilly road traffic accidents caused by young drivers, you may be thinking about launching a personal injury claim, and if you are, we here at Accident Advice Helpline are here to do what our name suggests. In other words, we’re here to advise and help you with any concerns you may have about the accident and injury you’ve sustained.

Young drivers are far more likely to have accidents than older drivers

Young drivers are seven times more likely to be involved in accidents than their older counterparts. It’s quite obvious when you stop and think about it. Just like anything in life, the more you do something, the more experience you gain. Although a young person who has just passed their driving test is technically able and qualified to drive, it’s one thing knowing the mechanics of driving, but it’s quite something else when it comes to getting used to driving in busy traffic. This can be the cause of Isles of Scilly road traffic accidents.

Young male drivers in general are considered to be more reckless

The fact of the matter is that one in five young people will have an accident within six months of having passed their driving test. But it’s not just lack of “road savvy” or lack of the knowledge of road etiquette that is responsible; some young drivers, (and particularly young male drivers), are noticeably more reckless than young female drivers and older drivers. They tend to drive faster, often exceeding speed limits, and take more risks with things like overtaking.

Driving under the influence of alcohol

Another fact is that many young people drive under the influence of alcohol, and it’s a known fact that young men under the age of 25 fail more breathalyser tests, at the roadside, or at the scene of accidents, than any older drivers.

Claiming compensation for Isles of Scilly road traffic accidents

Most people who’ve been injured in Isles of Scilly road traffic accidents caused by young drivers are determined to obtain compensation for their injuries, and they usually start off by trying to establish how much compensation they could be awarded.
