When you are driving, or even walking down the road, it is important to always be aware of what is going on around you and to ensure safety is paramount at all times. As soon as distractions kick in or safety slips this is when accidents can happen, which in some cases can prove to be fatal. If you are involved in an accident which was caused by someone else then you may be entitled to road traffic accident compensation in Mountain Ash.
Unsurprisingly the most common type of road traffic accident involves cars and is generally a collision between two vehicles, or a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian. Car accidents can happen in all environments, at all speeds and can be fatal. If you have been involved in a car accident then call us to talk about claiming road traffic accident compensation in Mountain Ash.
Bicycles can be notoriously difficult to see in traffic and because of this drivers need to take extra care to ensure that they leave enough room around them in case a cyclist appears. As a driver, if you see a cyclist ensure you give them enough room, and as a cyclist ensure you follow the same rules of the road as you would if you were driving.
In a similar fashion as bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents are generally caused because the vehicles are much smaller and more difficult to see than a car or van. Motorbikes can travel much faster than a bicycle can so at a roundabout or turning, you might not have long before you see them. Make sure that, as a driver, you always check your blind spots and keep an eye out for motorcyclists.
