Road traffic accident personal injury claims can be for many different injuries sustained in countless ways, and as long as the fault of the accident was not yours you may be entitled to compensation.
Some times people will ask:
- How can I avoid a cycling accident caused by a pothole?
- How can I avoid being run over by a bus?
- How can I avoid another car crashing into mine?
- How can I avoid being knocked off my motorbike?
The truth is, as we know, there is no way of guaranteeing safety at all times, and only ways of upholding vigilance.
Why victims make road traffic accident personal injury claims
There are risks involved in whatever you do, and no one plans to have an accident, they just happen.
All you can do is try to alleviate any risks to yourself and those around you, and hope that you do not have an accident that was not your fault. That is why victims make road traffic accident personal injury claims, because they have been injured in an accident that was not their fault.
In all the questions asked above, someone else would have been to blame, such as:
- The local council for not repairing the pothole when they should
- The bus driver for being distracted and not stopping when he should
- The other car driver jumping a red light because he was in a rush
- The owner of the parked car that opened their door without looking just as you passed them
The victims versus the guilty party
In all of these suggested scenarios, the victim would be able to claim compensation from the guilty party, although it would be most unlikely it would actually be them that actually settle the claim. Most personal injury claims are covered by insurance of some sort or another, something we all pay for as part of our premiums.
