If you have been involved in a car accident and need professional advice for your injury claims let the experts at Michael Lewin Solicitors in Leeds help you.
There are a huge number of factors that can contribute to a car accident occurring but as road users we all have a duty to drive safely and with care to minimise the risk of an accident.
Some of the most common situations that lead to road traffic accidents include:
? Bad weather conditions ? a slippery road surface due to snow or ice or a sudden downpour of rain can reduce visibility considerably.
? Failure of car parts ? such as tyre blow-outs brake failure or the engine suddenly cutting out.
? Hazards in the road ? e.g. pot holes or missing or incorrect road signs
? Reckless drivers ? following the vehicle ahead too closely driving too fast for the conditions or above speed limits failing to stop at red lights passing other cars when road markings show it is an inappropriate place to do so.
? Driver negligence ? not paying attention due to using a mobile phone or driving under the influence of alcohol.
Many of these circumstances are avoidable but sadly can lead to significant injures or even the loss of life in road traffic accidents. It’s necessary that you take the time to look around you before making manoeuvres on the road don?t drive too fast for the conditions at the time and keep your distance from the vehicle in front.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and had no contribution to the cause you may be entitled to compensation for injuries you suffered.
