Motor vehicle accidents are among the most common accidents in the UK. Depending on the type of vehicles involved, and how the accident happened, the results of motor vehicle accidents can be horrendous. Sometimes, peoples lives are changed forever because of them, and not everyone survives motor vehicle accidents.
The vehicles that can be involved in accidents
There is no end to the different types of vehicles that can be involved in accidents. From bicycles to HGV’s, they could all possibly be in an accident, and often one they did not cause. Cars, lorries, buses, coaches and motorbikes are just a few of the other vehicles that could be in a collision of some sort, and even pedestrians can get caught up in an accident on our roads.
Some road users are more vulnerable than others. Cyclists and motorbike riders for example, do not have the protective metal bubble around them. This means that their injuries tend to be more serious than other drivers, and in fact they are 40 times more likely to die in a road accident than a car driver is.
Claiming compensation for motor vehicle accidents
The innocent victims of motor vehicle accidents could be entitled to compensation, as long as they fit the legal criteria for making a claim.
- The road accident you were involved in must have been caused by someone else
- You must have suffered personal injuries in the accident, whether to the body or the mind
- Your injuries must have required the attention of a medical professional
- The road accident must have happened within the last three years
