    Oxford car accident

    Have you been injured in an Oxford car accident that wasn’t your fault? If you have, you could be entitled to some financial compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline is one of the best and most successful personal injury claim specialists here in the UK. Work with us and we can help you to realise the maximum amount of compensation available for the type of injury you’ve sustained.

    The most common cause of RTAs is driver error

    Most RTAs that take place in the UK are put down to driver error of some kind. Depending on which website you look at, the percentage of RTAs caused through driver error varies anywhere from 68% to 90%. One thing they all agree on, however, is that driver error is the single biggest contributor to RTAs, not only here in the UK, but all over the world.

    The various types of driver error

    There are many different types of driver error. The most common include:

    • Driving over the local speed limit
    • Driving at an inappropriate speed for local conditions
    • Driving under the influence of alcohol
    • Driving under the influence of drugs
    • Tailgating
    • Dangerous overtaking manoeuvres
    • Dangerous undertaking manoeuvres
    • Failing to observe traffic signs
    • Bad lane discipline
    • Failing to indicate
    • Driving with headlights on full-beam and blinding oncoming motorists
    • Failing to look properly at road junctions
    • Cutting across corners and junctions
    • Jumping traffic lights
    • Taking your eyes off the road
    • Impatience
    • Road rage

    It’s not vehicles that are dangerous

    Today’s cars are manufactured to the highest quality standards, and providing they are correctly and regularly maintained, they are safe machines. It’s the users, (their drivers) who are unsafe.
