Personal injury lawyer in Queens Gate
Despite millions of pounds being spent to improve road safety, road traffic accidents still account for far too many serious injuries and deaths. In the year ending March 2013 nearly 190,000 deaths and serious injuries were reported, and it is estimated that if unreported accidents were in the figures, the total number of accidents would well exceed 500,000.
These accidents happen for many reasons depending on what type of motor vehicles are involved, but a large number of them are due to a lack of concentration or distraction that takes the attention of the driver. Just a few seconds looking the wrong way can be fatal.
If you are involved in a road traffic accident that was the fault of someone else, you may be able to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Queens Gate.

How accidents can happen
Road traffic accidents happen in various ways, partly depending on the type of motor vehicle involved. For example:
- Drivers of cars trying to overtake before they should are quite a common cause of accidents on our roads;
- Defective brakes on a car can have disastrous effects;
- Pedestrians or animals on the road can cause vehicles to swerve and create an accident; and
- A motorbike rider could be thrown from his bike by potholes or bad road surfaces, and there could be no other vehicle involved.
