Driver error is said to be the cause of most road traffic accidents, often because the driver loses concentration. It takes just a couple of seconds looking the wrong way to cause a Maesteg car accident and innocent people to be injured through no fault of their own.
Careless drivers that cause a Maesteg car accident
Particularly if you sit in rush hour traffic jams, you will see drivers trying to many things they should not while they are in control of a vehicle. Sometimes it is even worse when the traffic starts to move. They can be in such a rush to move on they take unnecessary risks, endangering themselves and other road users. Among the things you will see is drivers:
- Jumping red traffic lights
- Not giving way at traffic islands and junctions
- Messaging on their mobile phone
- Trying to tune their radio or change a CD
- Not obeying road signs
- Driving far too close to the car in front
- Exceeding speed limits
- Reading a book or map they have on their lap, or on the seat next to them
- Doing their hair or make up
- Eating and drinking
Some of the drivers that behave in this way are really shocked when they cause an accident, always thinking these things happen to other people, never to them. They may be even more shocked when they realise that the Maesteg car accident they have caused has resulted in a totally blameless victim being seriously injured.
If you have been injured in a car accident, or any other type of accident, for which someone else was to blame, you may be entitled to compensation, and may need help with your claim.
