They say moving house in one of the most stressful things you will ever do in your lifetime, but being involved in a car accident must be right up there. The range of emotions you go through in the immediate aftermath change by the second, varying from your pain to how to make road accident claims in Lambeth through to how you’re going to tell your boss you’re going to be late for work.
Driver error has been statistically proven to be the biggest cause of road traffic accidents in the United Kingdom, and certainly contributes to the number of road accident claims in Lambeth.
People make mistakes and accidents happen, that’s what we’re told when we’re growing up and we tell our own children that now we’re older. Yet out on the roads those mistakes and accidents can result in much more serious injuries than scraped knees or dropped ice creams on the kitchen floor.
When you make a mistake out on the road, the people you involve in the accident – the innocent driver and any passengers in the other vehicle, along with anyone in your own vehicle – can suffer anything from cuts and bruises to whiplash and even more serious injuries like broken bones, or even worse.
The person injured in the accident has no way of avoiding it because they have no way of either seeing it coming or reacting to it. Sudden moves from drivers based on their attitudes or a sudden thought can lead to the kind of accidents that leave people in hospital.
When this happens, as the innocent victim, you are left wondering, “Why me?” You were following the rules of the road, travelling at the correct speed with a safe distance from the car in front of you and you were giving the road your full attention.
All of a sudden, another road user makes a rash decision and you’re left in a hospital bed surrounded by doctors rather than sitting at the table in your kitchen eating dinner with the family.
You are also left wondering when you might be able to go back to work, how you’re going to pay the bills while you’re recovering and how long it might be before you’re back to full health. It’s an incredibly distressing period in your life.
