    Road collision accidents in West Lancashire


    Help with road collision accidents in West Lancashire

    Every year in the United Kingdom, the number of drivers increases as they pass their tests and get behind the wheel for the first time. Many of these drivers will go on to become experienced and safe drivers. Sadly however, there are others who will go on to be the cause of accidents which leave people like you injured. A percentage of these accidents will be road traffic accidents in West Lancashire and there will be injured parties who were injured through no fault of their own.

    Road collision accidents in West Lancashire can vary in severity as well as type. As the passenger or driver of a motor vehicle, or the pedestrian on the pavement, you may find that you are injured in an accident that was not your fault. You don’t have to be inside a motor vehicle to be involved in a road traffic accident.

    I was injured while crossing the road

    As a pedestrian you are responsible for knowing where to cross and when. You are also tasked with ensuring that drivers on the road can see you if you are crossing the road at night or in conditions where visibility is reduced.

    Just as you are responsible for ensuring drivers can see you, so too they are responsible for ensuring you see them. This means that a driver pulling out into the road, or turning at a junction, should indicate and use proper signals.

    Both pedestrians and drivers alike are responsible for how they behave on the roads. As the victim of an accident as a driver, or a pedestrian, you could be injured if another party behaves in a reckless manner in a vehicle or crossing the road on foot.
