    Road traffic accidents in East Lothian


    Scotland is made up of 32 separate council areas, and one of these is East Lothian. It is a coastal area in the south-eastern part of Scotland, and has its main administrative base in Haddington. Some 100,000 people live in the area, which is peppered with towns of all sizes. Road traffic accidents in East Lothian can potentially happen just as they could anywhere else you might go in the country. Fortunately, few locals ever find themselves in this kind of situation.

    While some people go through their entire lives without ever being involved in a road accident, others are not so lucky. Even a fairly minor accident can really shake you up and leave you feeling vulnerable. More severe accidents can result in those involved having multiple injuries to contend with and recover from.

    How do road traffic accidents happen?

    There are many reasons why an RTA might happen. The road conditions could be slippery because of the weather, or there could be some other issue with the road surface, such as a large pothole for example. Very often, though, a driver is found to have caused the accident, either through inattentiveness or by driving in a dangerous manner.

    For the innocent people who are injured in the crash, coming to terms with it can be very difficult. Injuries may range from whiplash and seatbelt bruising to broken bones, head injuries and even spinal injuries if the crash is a serious one.

    How easy is it to find out whether you have a chance of winning compensation?

    It’s a lot easier than you may assume. Accident Advice Helpline has been working in the personal injury part of the industry for many years now – ever since 2000. Our company is represented by Dame Esther Rantzen, a champion for many people. Perhaps a call to our team could be the first important step for you to learn whether a sum of compensation could be paid out to you.
