If you find yourself in the position of having to raise a road traffic accident claim in Mid Sussex because you’ve been injured in an road traffic accident (RTA) whereby the other driver was driving over the speed limit, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline. Injury claims as result of RTA’s are something that we’ve had a lot of experience with over the years. Indeed, we can bring the full weight of that experience to bear on your behalf.
Braking at 30 miles an hour
Speed limits are set for the safety of road users and should be steadfastly obeyed. In an emergency situation, it typically takes an average driver 0.7 seconds to actually place his/her foot on the brake pedal. If the car is travelling at 30 miles an hour in a built-up area, that car is moving at 44 feet per second. In other words the car will have travelled 30 feet before the driver has had the chance to even begin taking action. Before that car stops it will travel a further 45 feet.
Commission Accident Advice Helpline to launch your claim
In this example it’s easy to see why so many accidents happen when drivers are speeding in a 30 mile an hour zone. If you’ve been hurt in an RTA by a driver who was speeding, you may well be entitled to raise a road traffic accident claim in mid Sussex, or wherever else it was that the incident might have taken place, to obtain suitable financial compensation. We here at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to do just that.

- The blame for the incident or accident that caused your injury should be levelled at someone other than yourself.

- The injury must have taken place within the 3 year period immediately preceding the date of your claim
