When driving through the streets of Addington, or anywhere else for that matter, you need to be 100 per cent focused on your driving and not let yourself be distracted in any way. Lack of concentration is one of the main reasons for road traffic accidents, and many accidents occur because drivers have taken their eyes of the roads for just a couple of seconds. Drivers should be totally focused on the road ahead, but there are many things that can attract a driver’s attention.
Dangerous driving, speeding, jumping traffic lights, and stray animals are other common causes of road traffic accidents. Drivers need to be alert at all times, otherwise serious or fatal accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Many victims could sustain a whiplash injury in Addington in this way.
Criteria for a making a claim for injuries
If an accident has happened which was not your fault, and you needed the treatment of a medical professional as a result, then you may be able to claim compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you with this.
You don’t necessarily have to be a driver in order to be eligible to make a claim for compensation: you could be a passenger, a pedestrian, a cyclist, or a motorcyclist and be injured in an accident that was not your fault.
One of the most common occurrences after an accident is whiplash. This is a very painful and debilitating experience. It is basically a sprain in the neck, but can have a person in severe pain for a very long time. The tendons and vertebrae leading up to the neck become inflamed and bruised, therefore causing pain and sometimes immobility. That could lead to drastic changes in your life, which in turn can affect your pocket.
