    Road traffic accidents in Ealing

    There are many types of road traffic accidents that could occur and you may have heard of road traffic accidents in Ealing that have involved cyclists, motorbikes, cars and other larger vehicles. Drivers who are involved in road traffic accidents in Ealing and elsewhere are obliged by law to stop regardless of whose fault the accident was. If you were involved in an accident involving an animal, especially if it was a farm animal or a dog with a collar, you should report the incident to the police immediately and ask for witnesses to your accident. You should exchange details with the driver of another vehicle if there was one involved, giving them the details of your insurers, and your address and phone number.

    Road traffic accidents in Ealing and elsewhere can also damage posts and bollards, as well as other fixed items on the street, and if these are damaged a driver should also stop. You may have to report the accident to the police within twenty-four hours of the accident. If asked, you should also produce a valid insurance document as failure to have insurance is an offence.

    Road traffic accidents in Ealing

    There are road traffic accidents which may be caused by impatient drivers when traffic is particularly heavy on the North Circular Road in Ealing. Road rage may be at times understandable, but violence is never a solution to another person’s appalling driving. If you are driving in and around Ealing, you should be aware that there are CCTV cameras on almost every street, so if you are involved in a road traffic accident in Ealing and fail to stop, the police will probably trace you eventually.

    Passengers and road accidents

    If you were a passenger in a privately owned vehicle or on public transport, you would probably be eligible to make a claim against the insurance company of the person who was responsible for the accident in which you were injured. You would need to be able to prove that another person was responsible for your injury (the driver either of the vehicle you were travelling in or the other driver involved in the collision.) You would also need to demonstrate that you had done nothing to contribute to the accident.

    There are very strict limitation periods for injury claims, and if you need to know how long you have to make your personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
