Three common reasons road traffic accidents take place
There are some very common road traffic accidents that are seen more often on UK roads more than others. You can claim for the injuries from an accident if you have been injured through no fault of our own – i.e. the fault lies with another driver, and the accident happened within the past three years.
Dangerous driving is one of the biggest killers on the roads here in the UK. There are many ways in which a driver may drive dangerously. For example, drink driving is an incredibly dangerous thing to do. Getting behind the wheel after consuming any alcohol is a risky decision and can end in a serious accident, or even fatality.
Using a mobile phone when driving is also another very dangerous thing to do. Those who engage on phone calls when driving are not only at risk of causing injury to other road users, but also of losing their license for many years.
Have you been involved in such an accident? Do you need to speak to an adviser at Accident Advice Helpline about making a no win no fee* Malvern claim for compensation? If yes, then call us today.
When bad weather hits the streets of many towns and cities in the UK, many road users tend to panic and rush home which can cause accidents. Flooding, fallen down trees and other blockages on the road also cause hazards. People rush home, but in doing so, they can cause other road users to crash and become injured.
It’s also advisable not to cycle in bad weather as this can be very dangerous when other cars are struggling to drive in the bad weather. Drivers may not see you properly, which can cause you to sustain an injury. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident due to bad weather, contact Accident Advice Helpline to make a claim for compensation.
Not wearing a seatbelt
Seatbelts are there for your safety and it’s incredibly important that you wear one at all times. Even if you are involved in an accident, but are wearing your seatbelt, there is a high chance that you may sustain fewer injuries than if you weren’t wearing a seat belt.
