    Road accident claims in Staffordshire


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Staffordshire

    Road accidents can happen for all kinds of reasons. They are not always someone’s fault, and sometimes can be the fault of both drivers, but in a situation where one driver was clearly to blame, you may be able to make road accident claims in Staffordshire for your injuries.

    If you can avoid getting into a road accident then this is always preferable to doing what you can to resolve the situation after it has occurred, and preventing a road accident is easier if you know what is most likely to cause one. Here are some of the more common causes of road accidents.

    Distracted driving

    This is the number one cause of driving accidents, and is more common than accidents caused by speeding or drinking. Driving when distracted means that you are unable to correct any potential problem or unexpected situation which presents itself. Top distractions include talking on the phone or checking a text message, eating or drinking.

    Speeding

    Even if you are only driving a little over the speed limit, you can still be stopped and penalised, and this is because speeding is very dangerous and causes many road accidents. Speeding means that you have less time to react if something goes wrong, as well as encouraging other drivers to speed up to match you, and this means that you are far more likely to hit another car.

    Bad weather

    Rain, snow and ice can all cause serious road accidents. These situations may seem to be impossible to avoid, and if you are in an accident there may appear to be no one to blame. However, it is up to your local council to do what they can to ensure that the roads are safe to drive on when there has been bad weather. If they have not done this then you may be able to claim compensation from them.
