There were over 190,000 road traffic accidents in the UK last year, and that just the ones reported to the emergency services and police. More than double that number go unreported, often when the accident has been caused by a pothole or something similar, and does not involve another road vehicle.
Of the ones where other vehicles are involved, the most common reason cited for the accident, is a lack of concentration on the part of a driver. This takes only a few seconds to cause an accident, and if you have been injured because of this, our law firm may be able to help you claim compensation for traffic accidents in Mid Devon.
Avoiding traffic accidents in Mid Devon
It is hard to believe some of the things some drivers try to do while they are travelling, such as:
- Using a mobile phone
- Reading a map without pilling over
- Doing hair or make up
- Eating or drinking
- Adjusting seats or seatbelt
- Tuning radios
- Changing a CD
The stupidity of some drivers is amazing, but most of us sitting in a line of traffic will have seen a driver messing with something he should not be, and if they do not start to take more care they may well cause someone else to be injured in an accident that was not their own fault, and then a mid Devon law firm will help that victim to claim compensation.
Carless driving can have serious consequences for any victims, and they do not have to be other car drivers. Most cycle and motorbike accidents are because the motor vehicle driver did not see the rider until it was too late to stop, and pedestrians are often innocent victims of drivers who are not paying attention.
