Are you making Teignbridge personal injury claims after being hurt on the motorway?
When a road accident occurs, it can always result in serious injuries or fatalities. Even if you’re travelling at a slow speed, you could still suffer severe injuries if you’re involved in some form of collision or if another driver hits you. However, if you’re travelling at high speeds on roads such as motorways or A roads, the risk may be even greater.
When travelling at high speeds, drivers don’t have as much time to react to a potential threat or danger. Whilst you might be able to perform an emergency stop and avoid another vehicle when travelling at thirty or forty miles per hour, it would take you far longer to stop if you were driving at a speed of sixty or seventy miles per hour.
Similarly, when driving on a motorway, there can be nowhere to go to avoid a collision. If you to swerve to try and avoid a threat whilst driving in the middle or inside lane, it’s likely that you would simply collide with other vehicles and an accident would still occur.
Due to the severity of most motorway collisions, accidents are generally always investigated. Although this investigation can take time, it’s important to find out who or what caused the incident. In addition to helping to determine the cause of this specific incident, this information could help to prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future. If, for example, the road surface was in a state of disrepair and contributed to the incident, other roads could be cordoned off until their surfaces could be repaired and made safe for other drivers.
If another driver has caused the incident, you may want to make Teignbridge personal injury claims against them. If you can show that they were responsible for the accident, it’s likely that you will be eligible to receive compensation from them. As most stretches of motorway are covered by CCTV, it’s possible that the incident will have been caught on tape which could help you to prove who was responsible and who caused the incident when it comes to making your Teignbridge personal injury claims.
If you suffered an injury relatively recently, making Teignbridge personal injury claims might be fairly straightforward. However, if the accident occurred some time ago, you could still obtain compensation by making Teignbridge personal injury claims. Providing you start your claim within three years of the incident occurring, it’s likely that you will still be eligible to make Teignbridge personal injury claims and we could help you to obtain compensation for your injuries.
