When you talk about road traffic accidents it’s easy to start thinking about car crashes. However, it isn’t just car drivers who might be eligible to make road traffic accident claims in Portsmouth.
In actual fact, anyone who is injured in any kind of accident involving a road user might be eligible to claim. This includes the obvious car, van and lorry drivers and their passengers, motorcyclists and bike riders and even pedestrians who might be unfortunate enough to be caught up in an accident if a road user mounts the pavement or if they’re hit while trying to cross the road for example.
The injuries that can be sustained in road traffic accidents, as you might imagine, are wide ranging. They can include everything from minor bumps and bruises to more serious internal injuries and broken bones, even serious, long-lasting or even permanent damage to the brain in severe cases.
Common traffic accident claims in Portsmouth
One of the most common incidents that leads to many of the traffic accident claims in Portsmouth is when a driver misjudges a gap while pulling out from a junction or when trying to overtake a slower vehicle.
They make the decision to pull out and unfortunately the gap just isn’t big enough. Not only can this result in a serious accident for the driver who made the mistake, but an innocent road user could be seriously injured through this one simple misjudgement.
