    Road accident claims in Hillingdon

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Hillingdon

    The number of people making road accident claims in Hillingdon and other areas of the capital is still alarmingly high despite the best efforts of the various road safety partnerships in the United Kingdom.

    Motorists see rural areas and roads as being much quieter than the major cities and motorway networks, yet the risks are still as high – if not higher. While the motorways are usually kept clear of snow, ice and debris; the rural roads are not as easy to treat or clear and this can make them just as, if not more hazardous to drive on.

    Drivers and riders should always follow the speed limits and “unwritten rules” of the road, such as the braking distances at certain speeds and in the various conditions.

    However, plenty of drivers are still breaking these rules and it is these drivers that cause the kind of accidents that keep the number of road accident claims in Hillingdon so high.

    The hazardous single carriageways

    The single carriageway roads present a series of hazards to motorists and many take it upon themselves to deal with them in their own way. For example, some will take a look at a slow moving vehicle and decide that they simply have to overtake it at the earliest opportunity.

    This recklessness can then result in an accident when they misjudge the size of a gap or the speed of an oncoming motorist.

    Alternatively, because they are so keen to overtake the vehicle in front, they look once and then decide they are making the manoeuvre. However, because they were only looking for oncoming cars, vans and lorries; they fail to spot an oncoming motorcyclist or cyclist and leave them with nowhere to go – causing an accident.

    Motorcyclists and cyclists don’t have the protection that drivers have, without the metal bodywork of the cars, vans and lorries around them; and this means that the injuries can be severe. Of course, drivers can also be seriously injured, especially if the accident comes out of the blue through no fault of their own.
