Whatever the causes of road traffic accidents are the end result is usually an injured road traffic accident victim. If you have been the victim of a collision on the roads no matter how it was ultimately caused you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation if a third party driver made you crash.
Mr G sustained an injury in a collision when a third party driver approaching from the opposite direction lost control of their vehicle and crashed straight into Mr G’s car. Mr G had to suffer prolonged suffering because of the pain from the injuries he sustained in the accident. Luckily Mr G came to the experts from Michael Lewin Solicitors to represent himand we were able to settle Mr G’s case for £1895.00

Many accidents happen at junctions when a driver is pulling out from a parked position alongside a road at roundabout and at traffic lights. Extra care should be taken in these areas. When travelling on the roads you should:
? Keep to the left of the road unless there are signs or markings indicating otherwise.
? Keep as far to the left as you can on right-hand beds; this will allow you a much better view of the road ahead and enable you to see the oncoming traffic sooner. This may help you avoid colliding with an oncoming vehicle.
? Keep both of your hands on the steering wheel as much as possible. This will ensure that you have better control of the vehicle at all times.
? Take extra care to be aware of other road users no matter how they are travelling; cyclists pedestrians and motor bike riders are particularly difficult to see and all of them are much more vulnerable that the motorised vehicle operators on the road. A collision with a road user from one of these groups much more likely to result in a serious or even fatal injury being caused.
? Control your speed better before descending down a hill by selecting a lower gear. This will help you maintain a lower speed; never take your car out of gear and roll down a hill because you will have much less control over your vehicle should the unforeseen happen.
? Always check your mirrors beforeturning or changing lanes to ensure that a vulnerable road user or other vehicle is not coming alongside you. Use your signals so other road users can plan around your intended manoeuvre.
