Accidents at work can happen at any time to anyone in any type of employment, they are sadly unpredictable. All workplaces are going to have hazards, some of course more than others, for instance a factory will have more dangers than an office. An employee that drives all day is more likely to be injured in a road traffic accident than one who sits behind a desk. An employer has a legal responsibly to ensure the health and safety of all their employees’ whist they are at work.
It is important that all employees are given the correct health and safety training and that any equipment is checked regularly for faults or possible hazards. The employer should carry out risk assessments and do their best to ensure the working environment is a safe place for everyone. But sadly accidents still happen every day to people while they are at work.

A road traffic accident is just another type of accident that we are all at risk of everyday. A road traffic accident occurs when a motor vehicle collides with something, someone (this could be a pedestrian) or another vehicle. All drivers will do their best to avoid accidents but sometimes they are unavoidable which is why we should all make sure we have insurance in place should we need it.
However it is not always the cases that the accident was your fault and if this is the case and someone else is to blame you should not have to claim through your own insurance company, it is the guilty party who are liable to pay any damages to vehicles, bikes or anything else involved and pay out for any personal injuries. So if you have had a road traffic accident that was not your fault you should make Wolverhampton car accident claims.

This is still an accident that was not your fault and you will been suffering from the injuries you sustained so in this case you can still be eligible to make Wolverhampton slip, trip or fall accident claims for your personal injuries.
