Accident Advice Helpline – the HGV accident personal injury lawyers Northamptonshire residents can access online
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, as the personal injury lawyers Northamptonshire residents often use, one of the things that we are being asked more frequently to get involved with, are injuries that have been sustained as a result of accidents involving HGVs.
Campaign to reduce the Lorry/HGV accident incidence rate
Lorries and HGVs are at the centre of an increasing proportion of RTA’s here in the UK. Recent statistics have shown that last year, HGVs were involved with over 50% of the fatal accidents that occurred on our motorways, and one in five of all fatal accidents on our A roads. It’s a worrying trend that’s been on the rise over the past five years. Late last year, the Campaign for Better Transport contacted the government requesting new measures be brought in, to help to minimise the number of RTA’s involving these vehicles and make our roads and motorways safer.
No to longer vehicles, and increased speed limits
Early suggestions include that the government should abandon thoughts of allowing longer HGVs into the UK, and that they should not increase the speed limit for HGVs on single carriageway roads.
Accident Advice Helpline – the HGV accident personal injury lawyers in Northamptonshire that have the knowledge and experience to help
If you’ve been injured in an RTA involving a Lorry or HGV through no fault of your own, and you’re contemplating raising a no win no fee claim for compensation, Accident Advice Helpline, the personal injury lawyers in Northamptonshire, have knowledge and experience with these sorts of accidents and are able to help.
Untraced and uninsured driver compensation
Sometimes injury victims are faced with trying to claim compensation regarding hit and run incidents where the identity of the driver is unknown. In such cases, Accident Advice Helpline may still be able to help. Untraced and uninsured driver compensation is one of our specialities. The things we need to know to process any personal injury claim include:
- That the blame for the accident and injury is down to a third party
- That the nature and severity of the injury warrants the raising of the personal injury claim
- That you have medical proof substantiating the nature of the injury
- That the incident occurred within the past three years
