A lack of concentration is the reason most drivers who cause an accident give for how the accident happened. This can be because of something really simple like something catching their eye as they drive past, but it only takes a few seconds of looking in the wrong direction to cause an accident.
5 people a day lose their lives on our roads, and nearly 190,000 accidents that involved serious injury were reported to the year ending March 2013.
There would have been many more accidents that were not reported and government figures suggest the total of road traffic accidents exceeds 500,000.
The blameless victims of road traffic accidents
Many of those injured will have been faultless victims, and if their situation complies with the rules they will be able to use an injury lawyer to make a no win no fee in Colchester personal injury claim. The rules are:
- Someone else must have been at fault, even as the passenger of the car that caused the accident, it was not your fault.
- You must have sustained injuries to your body or mind in the accident, and they must have needed medical attention.
- The accident should have taken place some time in the last three years.
The injuries you might sustain in a road traffic accident that was not your fault
There is an endless list of injuries you could sustain in an accident that was not your fault, but some of the more common ones are:
- Head and brain injuries
- Burns from motorbike engines
- Back and spine injuries
- Road rash
- Internal injuries
- Facial injuries
- Damage to joints
- Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash
- Eye injuries
The severity of your injury determines the amount of compensation you receive.
