Road Traffic Accidents in East Sussex


Lewes, Hastings, Battle and Eastbourne are all situated in East Sussex, and you may have visited them. Hopefully you were not involved in a road traffic accident in East Sussex, or any other accident. Battle and Hastings in East Sussex are famous because of the Norman invasion of 1066 after which William I (the Conqueror) became King. You can visit the battlefield and the abbey in Battle which William had built to celebrate his victory. If the weather is good, you may simply head to the beach and try to maintain the tan you had when you were on holiday in warmer climes, but take care as you don’t want to be a victim of road traffic accidents in East Sussex.

Road traffic accidents in East Sussex

According to the RAC’s statistics for road traffic accidents and fatalities arising from them in 2009 in the UK, 2,605 people were fatally injured. Young people aged 15 – 19 accounted for 25 per cent of those fatalities and men are almost three times likely to die in or after a road traffic accident than women.

If you have been injured in road traffic accidents in East Sussex or elsewhere, you may be wondering what to do. If you can prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured, then you may need a specialist road traffic accident lawyer to help you. You need to be able to prove that another person was to blame for your accident and injuries. You must have received immediate medical treatment for your injuries if you are to file a personal injury compensation claim.

Had an accident while driving?

You may have been driving when a vehicle swerved into you, and perhaps both of you stopped and exchanged insurance details. The police should have been informed, and you should have asked witnesses for their names and contact details.

If the driver of the other vehicle was responsible for the accident and he or she is insured, then you can make a personal injury compensation claim and one for damage to your personal property against the insurers. However, you should still have a road traffic accident lawyer to assist you as all too often the first amount of compensation offered will be low so you should not accept it. A specialist lawyer will be able to advise you and work out how much compensation you might expect to receive (although this will only be a rough estimate).
