When most people think about accidents sustained in road traffic accidents, it’s likely that high-speed collisions on motorways will spring to mind. While it may well be the case that the most serious injuries that are sustained in road traffic accidents do come about as a result of accidents that occur when vehicles are going very fast, it’s far from unusual for people to sustain some quite nasty injuries in accidents that happen at a low speed.
When it comes to taking personal injury action after being injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, the more serious your injury is, the higher the compensation you will be likely to receive. But this does not mean that you won’t be able to take action if you suffer a more minor injury in an accident that has taken place at a low speed. If you have been hurt in a road traffic accident that occurred while the vehicle you were in or the car that hit you was going slowly, there will be a possibility that you might well have Slough law firm solicitor action on your hands.
Slow road traffic accidents and Slough law firm solicitors
Imagine that you had just pulled up at a set of traffic lights in your motor car. You’re waiting patiently for the lights to change colour, when suddenly a car that pulls up behind you hits the back of your motor. You can feel the impact, but don’t feel as though the vehicle that did the damage could have been travelling at a high speed. You get out of your car and see that a nasty dent has been made in the bodywork of your vehicle. The driver who hit you apologises profusely and readily accepts full responsibility for the incident, offering you his insurance details. Fair play, you think to yourself, assuming that as you are not hurt there will be no need to launch Slough law firm solicitor action.
