Are you making a no win no fee Aberdeenshire compensation claim after being hit by a vehicle?
Normally, road traffic accidents which occur when vehicles are travelling at high speeds can result in some of the most serious injuries which occur on the roads of Great Britain. However, this doesn’t mean that serious injuries and fatalities can’t occur as a result of collisions which happen at slow speeds.
When drivers need to reverse, they often travel at a fairly slow speed but this doesn’t mean that they will avoid causing an accident. Often, drivers will try to look out of their back windows or their mirrors when attempting to reverse but their visibility can still be restricted. If they aren’t aware of their surroundings, or if they don’t pay attention, they could fail to see a person or another vehicle and they may collide with them.
Unfortunately, drivers who are using larger vehicles, such as vans and lorries, can find it even more difficult to see when using their mirrors. Although many large vehicles do display signs warning other road users that their visibility may be restricted, they can still be held liable if they do cause an accident, even if they are travelling at a relatively low speed.
