Many Tonyrefail road traffic accidents are caused by incompetent drivers. If you’ve been involved in such an accident, and you’ve sustained a significant injury, you will be well within your legal and moral rights to claim compensation for your injury.
Passing the driving test doesn’t make you a competent driver
Passing the driving test is one thing, but actually driving competently in busy town traffic is something else altogether. Learning to drive teaches you the mechanics of driving and the basics of the Highway Code. What it doesn’t teach you is experience; which you can only really pick up from driving for a long time. Unfortunately, incompetent drivers are accountable for a great many road traffic accidents (RTAs). In fact, if you put the errors that incompetent drivers commit under the heading of “driver error” these account for over 65% of the total number of RTAs that happen here in the UK.
Both inexperienced and experienced drivers can be incompetent
It may seem somewhat unfair to label new drivers as being incompetent. However, the fact remains that over 20% of all young male drivers who pass their driving tests, lose their licences within 2 years. But aside from new drivers, there are many people who have been driving for a number of years that can still be classed as incompetent. It is often down to sheer nervousness, and the truth of the matter is that some people never feel calm or confident behind the wheel, no matter how many years they have been driving.
Driving too slowly, and dithering at busy junctions are the signs of incompetent drivers. Whilst many of these drivers are not involved in an accident themselves, they do cause others to have accidents in which they get injured. Unfortunately, this is often down to impatience and exasperation, neither of which can be taken into consideration if someone is thinking of launching a claim for injury compensation. The blame for any such accident must be clearly attributable to the incompetent driver, and not the impatience of the injury victim.
