Nearly everyone who searches for a personal injury solicitor in Burntisland because they have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not their own fault will have an opinion about how their accident was caused. Most of the cases that a car injury solicitor in Burntisland would take on are down to driver error. One driver made an error and caused an accident in which other people were injured.
Of course, they may have been injured themselves as well but they cannot make a personal injury claim because they cause the accident!
So what did the driver do wrong? Here we look at some of the details of what driver error really means:
Personal injury solicitor in Burntisland – driver error
If a solicitor in Burntisland is going to start a personal injury claim for you then they are going to have to prove that another driver was at fault. They will do this by proving that the other driver:
- Failed to look properly – as a result they either drove into you or pulled out in front of you so that you could not avoid driving into them
- Failed to judge another person’s path or speed – they placed their vehicle directly in your path because they judged (wrongly) that you were not going to collide with them
- Lost control of their vehicle – they were not in control of the vehicle when it hit you
- Poor turn or manoeuvre – they carried out a turn or manoeuvre that resulted in a collision with you or your vehicle
- Sudden braking – they did not brake in time which meant that they collided with you
- Passing too close – this applies to collisions with pedestrians or cyclists.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you to find a personal injury solicitor in Burntisland who will be an expert in proving how road traffic accidents were caused. They will know how to deal with the large insurance companies that usually pay out compensation claims – most claims are paid out of a motor insurance policy. Then, once they have established liability, they will negotiate a sum in compensation for your injuries and for the money that you have lost because you are injured.
You can start your claim off by calling them on their 24/7 hotline but first jot down some details of your accident so that you have all the facts to hand. You will need to tell them the date of the accident as well as details of the injuries that you have suffered.
