Are you making a no win no fee Greenock claim after being hurt on a country road?
Although road traffic accidents can occur on virtually any road in the country, there are different types of dangers in different areas. If, for example, you regularly drive in busy cities and towns, you may be used to manoeuvring your vehicle through heavy traffic and you may be wary of passengers trying to cross the road in the middle of moving traffic. Similarly, if you regularly drive on the motorway, you may be comfortable changing lanes and aware of how to safely control your vehicle at high speeds.
In some cases, people assume that driving on quieter country roads is easier than driving on fast roads or in built up areas but this isn’t always true. Smaller roads can have their own dangers and drivers can easily become involved in road traffic accidents on these types of roads.
Often, the visibility is far poorer on quieter roads and drivers may struggle to see what is ahead of them. Many country lanes aren’t lit so there are no street lights to guide you when it gets dark. In addition to this, some lanes are only wide enough for one vehicle so you may need to reverse in order to let other vehicles pass you.
Another danger to consider when driving on country roads is the possibility that animals could be around. Whilst wild animals may go onto carriageway at any time, farm animals, or even pets, could escape onto the road if they aren’t kept in a secure area.
In addition to this, you may find that you’re sharing the road with drivers using agricultural machinery and vehicles. As these types of vehicles aren’t able to be manoeuvred quickly and don’t always have very good visibility, it is a good idea to keep your distance until you can pass them safely.
As on any stretch of road, if you are hurt whilst driving on country lanes and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a no win no fee Greenock claim. If another driver or road user caused the incident, it’s likely that they will be held responsible and you could obtain compensation from them, providing you make a successful no win no fee Greenock claim.
