Considering a road traffic injury claim in West Midlands?
In this age of modern technology where the world is looking forward to the advent of driverless cars, the need for safety on our roads has never been more important. Many people believe that we, as a nation, are not ready for driverless technology because of the current number of accidents on our roads. Indeed, those already injured in car accidents feel strongly that such technology is not necessarily a good idea. If you have been injured and need to make a road traffic injury claim in West Midlands, call Accident Advice Helpline today.
While some of us welcome the advent of the driverless car, there are those who would strongly protest against it. You will find that these individuals are people who have already been injured in a road traffic accident, where the driver behind the wheel was at fault.
The argument is a simple one: how can a car with no driver be safer than a car with a driver? Annually, thousands of people in the United Kingdom are injured in car accidents through no fault of their own. These accidents are often the cause of a driver who may not have been paying the correct amount of attention, or who may have let their concentration slip.
The driver who caused my accident was driving under the influence
Those injured in an accident who wish to make a road traffic injury claim in West Midlands do so because of their injuries which include:
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Fractured skull
- Spinal column injuries
- Internal organ damage
Such injuries can be sustained by the drivers or passengers of motor vehicles that have been involved in a collision with another vehicle. The driver of the vehicle that caused the accident may not be licensed or be found to be under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offence and is illegal. Some drivers don’t know they are under the influence of alcohol or narcotics because they feel fine behind the wheel. The truth is their ability to avoid an accident has been greatly impaired by these substances without their knowledge.
Some drivers attempt to drive after the previous night’s alcohol intake, only to find that the levels of alcohol in their system are still well beyond the legal limit. Others drive whilst taking medication prescribed by their physician which is too strong and impairs their judgement without their knowledge.
