It may be obvious that someone caused an accident, in which case there will be no dispute about liability. However, there will be cases where it is not obvious, or where the extent of liability is difficult to work out. For example, as a general rule the driver of a vehicle which runs into the back of another vehicle will be held liable for the accident. This is the case even if the driver of the car in front has slammed on the brakes sharply or unexpectedly, because drivers are required to drive a safe distance behind other vehicles.
If you have been the victim of a road traffic accident, then you should contact a no-win, no-fee in Stockton-on-Tees lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline.
A driver involved in a traffic accident should stop, whether or not the accident was their fault, if:
- Anyone other than themselves is injured;
- Another vehicle or someone else’s property is damaged;
- An animal in another vehicle or running across the road is injured; or
- A bollard, street lamp or other item of street furniture is damaged.
