Has a collision resulted in a Mendip accident?
When vehicles collide, it can result in a very serious Mendip accident indeed. While most rivers will attempt to brake or slow down before hitting another car, if the driver doesn’t see the other vehicle then they may not attempt to stop, and could therefore hit the vehicle at full speed.
The injuries which can be caused by this type of impact can be catastrophic, particularly if young people were travelling in the vehicle at the type of the incident. Although safety measures such as seatbelts and airbags, can protect passengers, they can’t always prevent all injuries from occurring.
When a Mendip accident involves two vehicles, it can be relatively easy to highlight who was at fault and therefore responsible for the incident. However, in many instances there are more than two vehicles involved. If, for example, a vehicle hits a stationary car in traffic, that vehicle could then be shunted into the vehicle in front. Similarly, if one vehicle swerves to avoid another, they could then strike another vehicle, or even a cyclist or pedestrian.
When a multi-car collision occurs, it’s often difficult to determine who caused the Mendip accident straight away. The vehicle that hit you, for example, may not have caused the incident as a whole, and may have simply been reacting to the other vehicles around them.
