Road traffic accidents are on the rise
In Chingford alone, there are around 18,000 incidents a year where people contact the police relating to a road traffic accident of some sort. In the past few years there have been some very devastating accidents resulting in a lot of fatalities including head on collisions and distressing accidents involving cyclists and car drivers.
It’s important that safety on the road is adhered to. An accident is defined as a traffic accident if it occurs on a road or in a place to which the public have access such as car parks, lanes and some driveways as well as footpaths and bridleways.
Was the driver driving illegally?
If you suspect that the other driver was illegally driving then be sure to report this. Examples of driving illegally include people who drive:
- alone on a provisional licence
- without a driving licence, tax or insurance
- while disqualified from driving
- a stolen vehicle
- an unsafe vehicle
- without an MOT certificate
- while drunk or under the influence of drugs
- dangerously without cause
If you know that the other driver involved was driving illegally then it may help your claim for compensation with our personal injury lawyer in Chingford. This is because your lawyer will require all the evidence that is available to help you win.
