    Stirling Compensation

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Stirling

    When people need help in an emergency, they normally phone 999 in order to access the police, the ambulance service of the fire brigade. Fortunately, the emergency services in the United Kingdom provide an exceptional service and can normally get to people in need within a few minutes.

    However, in order to get to people as quickly as possible, police officers, paramedics and firemen and women, do need to drive at high speeds. Although the law allows emergency vehicles to disregard some rules of the road, they must still be aware of other drivers and vehicles on the road.

    When they hear a siren or see blue flashing lights, most motorists will attempt to pull over or stop so as the vehicle can get around them. Whilst this works well in most situations, it can be difficult if traffic in front of the emergency vehicle is stationery. If, for example, there are two lanes of traffic waiting at red lights and an emergency vehicle is trying to travel in the same direction, motorists may feel unsure of what to do. As they are unable to reverse, they may attempt to go through the red light in order to let the emergency vehicle get through. This, in turn, could put them in danger of colliding with another vehicle.

    Unfortunately, there have been incidents in which an emergency vehicle has collided with another road user. Although emergency vehicle drivers are highly trained and highly skilled, they are subject to the same conditions on the road as everybody else so it shouldn’t necessarily be a surprise that accidents occur from time to time.

    If you’ve been involved in a collision with an emergency vehicle, it is possible that you could make a claim for compensation against them, providing the incident wasn’t your fault. If the other driver is shown to be at fault, it’s possible that you could receive a considerable sum of Stirling compensation, depending on the type of injuries you sustained.
