Have you been injured at a roundabout?
As any experienced drivers will know, some road traffic junctions are safer than others. Fast roads, short slip roads and carriageways with numerous lanes may feel more dangerous to some drivers and they could lead to an accident occurring.
Of course, drivers should take extra care if driving on busy or fast roads but, unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time and in any place. Roundabouts, in particular, can be difficult junctions for many drivers.
Although drivers should always slow down when approaching a roundabout, some may fail to stop or give way to other drivers when they should. This can obviously cause accidents to occur so it’s essential that you’re aware of other road users at all times.
If you’ve been injured whilst driving around a roundabout, you may want to take action against the driver responsible and you should be able to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Thanet.
Of course, in order to successfully obtain compensation, you will need to be able to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident. If you’re worried about how to prove your innocence, we may be able to help.
Making a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Thanet
If you need to prove that someone else was responsible for the incident, it could be easier than you think. If they admit their liability straightaway, making a compensation claim against them could be relatively easy.
Similarly, if witnesses saw the incident and are willing to give a statement, this could lend support to your claim. Many traffic junctions and roads are now fitted with CCTV cameras so you may find that there is video footage of the incident and this could help to prove exactly who was responsible for the incident.
