    Advice on truck accident claims in West Berkshire

    Do you need help regarding truck accident claims in West Berkshire? Being involved in a road traffic accident is a very traumatic experience, but imagine how it must feel to see an HGV hurtling towards you at speed, or its back half swinging round a corner where you are on your cycle and you can’t get out of its way. Because of their huge size, it is no wonder that when we handle truck accident claims in West Berkshire involving HGV’s, the injuries tend to be of a very serious nature.

    Last year, the Campaign for Better Transport reported that:

    • More than half the fatal accidents on motorways involve HGV’s, although they only account for 10% of the traffic
    • HGV’s are involved in 1 in 5 fatal accidents on A roads, a ratio that has got worse over the last 5 years
    • An HGV is five times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident on a minor road than other traffic

    These statistics do not make pretty reading, particularly as they relate to a period when overall the numbers of road traffic accidents decreased slightly on our roads.

    The causes of HGV accidents

    HGV’s have many of the same problems and have the same accidents as other road users. Yet because they are so large the consequences of them can be much worse. There are additional risks with them as well, like uneven loads, high winds, the condition of the vehicle. They can all play a part in road traffic accidents involving HGV’s.

    The drivers of these monsters of the roads go through a lot a training to be able to get behind the wheel of them and generally are highly skilled drivers. The accidents they are in are not always the fault of the HGV driver. Sometimes it is the HGV drivers actually making truck accident claims in West Berkshire.
