Many Warwickshire car accident claims are raised in respect of RTA’s that take place on some of the motorways that cross the UK. Two of the main causes are speeding and tailgating. They are not things that should go hand-in-hand and they can cause unexpected accidents in Warwickshire.
Speeding and tailgating on motorways
A survey carried out recently shows that 6 out of every 10 drivers admit to speeding and tailgating on motorways. The average speedster exceeds the 70 mph motorway speed limits by at least 10 mph.
Claiming for unexpected accidents in Warwickshire
Although 57% of people interviewed admitted to tailgating at speed, approximately 95% of interviewees said that they were concerned about vehicles travelling to close behind them. 44% of respondents admitted to being concerned about this every time they drive on one of the UK’s motorways.
Tailgating severely limits reaction time
The problem is of course that when people tailgate they are leaving themselves far too little time in which to react to emergency situations. The faster they’re travelling the greater the danger and the more likely that an accident will have a more devastating effect.
The most important factor with regard to applying for compensation by raising no win no fee Warwickshire car accident claims is that the blame for the accident has to be attributable to someone other than the person raising the claim. If you are blameless all you then need is medical proof of the injury you’re claiming for. Also the accident must have taken place within the 3 years immediately preceding the date you raise your claim.
