Are you the innocent victim of a car crash in the Forest of Dean? If you are, you may find this article to be of use.
There are many reasons for road traffic accidents and why innocent victims make out claims for personal injury compensation, but the most common one is driver error.
This can be because the driver is distracted by something, but it appears that often it is because they misjudge the speed and angles of other road vehicles. This also applies to pedestrians, who think they can get across the road before the vehicle hits them, only to find it reaches them much quicker than they thought it would.
The causes of the accidents that make people the victim of a car crash in the Forest of Dean
Here are some the causes of the accidents that make people the victim of a car crash in the Forest of Dean:
- Jumping red traffic lights
- Not giving way at traffic islands
- Overtaking when it is not safe to
- Driving while under the influence of drink or drugs
- Not taking enough care at junctions
- Potholes and bad road surfaces
- Bad weather conditions
The drivers who cause these accidents should be made to face claims for compensation, as well being prosecuted, and maybe being banned for dangerous driving.
Let Accident Advice Helpline assist you with securing compensation
Most personal injury claims are settled by insurance companies, which is something we all pay for every time we buy an insurance policy.
If for any reason there is no insurance, such as the driver had stolen the car, then there is the Motor Insurer’s Bureau who will consider all claims from innocent victims where there is a lack of insurance.
Making a compensation claim is a legal process, and just like any other legal process you may have to deal with, it should be handled by lawyers and solicitors that understand the in and outs of personal injury claims.
