    Common causes of road traffic accidents for a lawyer in Old Meldrum

    Road traffic accidents occur for a number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of road traffic accidents for a lawyer in Old Meldrum include:

    • Driver error
      Driver error usually occurs in combination with other factors, such as hazardous road conditions.
    • Injudicious actions
      Many road traffic accidents involve injudicious actions as contributing factors. Injudicious actions include speeding, tailgating and disobeying traffic signals. When accidents occur as a result of injudicious actions, they often involve fatalities.
    • Distractions and impairments
      Some of the most commonly reported distractions include mobile phones, satellite navigation systems and passengers.
    • Road conditions
      Factors such as hazardous weather and worn road surfaces. These factors are often unavoidable and/or unforeseen.
    • Ill health
      Some road traffic accidents are caused by drivers struck down by a serious illness whilst behind the wheel. These drivers will not usually be held responsible for the accident. However, you can still make a compensation claim against them for any personal injuries you have sustained. Your settlement will covered by their insurance company.

    Understanding your legal rights

    If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a no-win, no-fee claim through an accident lawyer.

    In many cases, the guilty party’s insurance company will deal with the damages, but they will not always offer you the largest possible compensation settlement. You will require the assistance of an accident lawyer who will ensure that you receive a fair compensation settlement.
