    South Tyneside car accident


    South Tyneside car accident

    Most times a South Tyneside car accident happens, it is because the driver of the vehicle is not doing what they should, or losing concentration and ultimately control of whatever they are driving.

    Road traffic accidents do not happen just in South Tyneside though, they happen all over the UK every day of the week.

    The causes of South Tyneside car accidents

    When you are a careful and considerate driver yourself, you assume that other road users are the same. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

    Here is a list of driving misdemeanours:

    • Trying to read a map while moving
    • Jumping red lights
    • Doing cosmetics in the mirror
    • Ignoring traffic signs
    • Overtaking when road markings clearly show no overtaking
    • Trying to adjust their seat while moving
    • Talking on the phone or texting

    The reduction in road traffic accidents

    In spite of faster cars on busier roads, the accident statistics for last year actually improved slightly.

    This is partly due to road planners working to make our roads safer, partly due to safer cars, and partly due to stiffer penalties for drivers caught breaking the law. Hopefully this means a South Tyneside car accident is less likely to happen.

    Your entitlement to compensation

    If you should be injured in an accident, no matter what type of accident it was, and it was caused by someone else, you could be entitled to compensation if you were injured severely enough to warrant medical attention, and the accident took place no more than three years ago

    At Accident Advice Helpline we are dedicated to helping the faultless victims of accidents get the compensation they are entitled to. It is why we were established in June 2000, and all we have done ever since.

    As a specialist law firm we have assisted many thousands of claimants in getting the access to the justice they are entitled to, and the compensation they deserve.

    Call our 24/7 helpline

    We make this as easy as possible, firstly by you not having to worry about financing your claim.

    We work on a no win no fee basis, so no money is needed for the work to be started, and no solicitors’ fees are payable if your claim is lost.

    We have online and freephone options to contact us and to get as much free advice about making personal injury claims as you need.

    We will not push you into it, but will let you decide for yourself if you want to pursue a claim.
