No one is immune to South Hams road traffic accidents, as they can happen so easily, just like anywhere else in the country. They are usually sudden, quick and happen when you least expect them.
South Hams road traffic accidents only take a few seconds
South Hams road traffic accidents happen for many reasons but the most common one is a lack of concentration on the part of the driver. It only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen and when drivers are trying to do other things while in charge of a vehicle, those few seconds can of distraction happens very easily and people get injured through no fault of their own. Some of the things that should be avoided while driving are:
- Using a mobile phone unless it is hands free, whether it is to speak or text
- Reading a map while it is on your steering wheel, or the seat next to you
- Doing hair or make up in the mirrors
- Eating or drinking
- Adjusting your seat or seatbelt as this can make the seat shoot backwards or forwards
- Tuning your radio or changing a CD, you should do these things before setting out
For most drivers these things are common sense, but for others it is the norm and they are the sorts that will cause South Hams road traffic accidents.
If you were injured in an accident caused in this way, it would make you the faultless victim of careless driving and would entitle you to make a personal injury claim for any injuries, physical or psychological, that you may sustain and you could do this by contacting Accident Advice Helpline.
