Are you thinking of making Kilmarnock personal injury claims after being hit by a dangerous driver? Even though drivers have to sit practical and theoretical tests before they are legally allowed on the roads, many people still drive in a dangerous manner. Driving too fast or not paying attention to the road are examples of dangerous driving. Unfortunately, this type of conduct can result in unnecessary accidents and people can be seriously hurt or even killed.
In many instances, dangerous driving is actually a criminal offence and the CPS do prosecute offenders. In a road traffic accident occurs and the person who caused the incident is found to have been driving dangerously, it’s likely that they will be arrested and they could face criminal charges.
Can you make Kilmarnock personal injury claims for your traffic accident?
If a court case does follow an accident, this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to make Kilmarnock personal injury claims if you were hurt in the accident. Whenever a collision or a road traffic accident occurs, those affected should be able to make Kilmarnock personal injury claims against the person or people responsible.
If you were driving at the time of the incident and you can show that you weren’t at fault, there’s a good chance that you will be able to make Kilmarnock personal injury claims and obtain compensation for your injuries. However, you don’t have to have been driving in order to make personal injury claims. If you were a passenger and you suffered injuries in the incident, you could also make personal injury claims. Similarly, if you were travelling by public transport, or even walking down the road and were struck, you could also make personal injury claims if you were injured due to the collision.
Although you may already know that you’re eligible to make personal injury claims, you may not know how much your compensation claim is worth or how much compensation you could potentially be awarded with if your claim is successful. If you’d like to find out, we can help.
