It is not that road traffic accidents in Moray are any worse than anywhere else in the UK – indeed they fall well within the “norm”. But what there has been a surge of is how people are dealing with these accidents.
Many people have been in an accident at one point in their lives, or will at a later point if they are young, and know that it can be a disturbing experience – even if it is just a minor fender bender. But what is worse is the extra stress that occurs when it really wasn’t your fault!
Innocent Driver Stress
Noted during road traffic accidents in Moray, there is an extra stress that befalls drivers when they have done nothing wrong. It has been shown that this is a whole extra dimension to the issue rather than just the norm.
People have always been aware of the stress that can be caused by the sheer event of an accident, whether large or small. The temporary loss of a vehicle, the extra costs and the annoyance of dealing with insurance companies and so forth can also cause extra stress. And this is if everything is going smoothly and doesn’t even touch on the injuries you may have suffered.
However, what is interesting is that the person at fault (the other driver) experiences most of these types of stress as well. Regardless of their responsibility, they too are experiencing expense and inconvenience – and there is no reason that they wouldn’t have sustained injuries as bad or worse than the other driver, as karma just doesn’t work that neatly. What is interesting though is that, for the most part, it is the victim that experiences more stress.
What has been noted from road traffic accidents in Moray is that the victim has another element of stress than the driver at fault (this is not including the guilt that the driver at fault may or may not be experiencing); indeed the victim has feelings of being “put upon”. They may ask themselves questions like “why do I have to deal with all this?” And they may well have a point.
It doesn’t happen all the time. For instance, those who have been in a road traffic accident in Moray, or anywhere else, and were not at fault who take on a third party to deal with the situation tend to experience less stress because of this. This has been shown through the attitudes of people who have been using AHH (Accident Advice Helpline) or a similar service.
Stressed after a Road Traffic Accident in Moray
There are obviously a fair amount of people who get in clangs who are getting frustrated when the world turns round and throws some unexpected obstacles in their path, but there really is no need. The best way to deal with the unexpected is simply to outsource it and get a guardian angel like AHH – who knows you may even get some compensation and turn that accident into a victory.
