Many of the no win no fee claims in Sandwell that we help people to process here at Accident Advice Helpline have been with regard to injuries they’ve sustained as a passenger when the car they were riding in was involved in the road traffic accident.
Driver error – a major cause of UK RTAs
Driver error is by far the most common denominator in road traffic accidents (RTAs) here in the UK. Over 68% of all RTA’s are put down to this particular phenomenon, with driver distraction being the principal type of error. In some ways it’s hardly surprising with all of the in-car gadgetry that is now available; things like in-car entertainment systems, satellite navigation systems and mobile telephones which can now be synced to the car itself.
In some instances drivers blame the distraction on their passengers and if this is the case with the accident you were involved in it could jeopardise your claim. The blame for any accident must be attributable to someone other than the person that is raising the personal injury claim. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the driver one of the other vehicles involved who is to blame ; it could always be the driver of the car you were travelling in.
Helpful advice regarding no win no fee claims in Sandwell
Strange though it might seem, only approximately 3 out of every 10 people who can legitimately raise compensation claims for personal injuries, actually do. Bearing this in mind, one of the best pieces of advice we give to potential claimants thinking about raising no win no fee claims in Sandwell is to take the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test to find out how much their claims could be worth.
Personal injury claim compensation usually involves significant sums of money and once claimants are aware of what is at stake this can often be the incentive they need to go ahead and register their claims. This test can be taken here on our website.
