If you have sustained a personal injury in a road traffic accident Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you make a compensation claim if the accident was not your fault. Mr M used the no win no fee personal injury service at Michael Lewin Solicitors and was awarded over £2000.00 in personal injury compassion after his claim was assessed by us.
Most car accidents are caused by human error. It is very rare that an environmental influence will cause an accident that a driver is completely blameless for; landslides from cliff sides are an example of an environmental influence on a car accident.
Bad weather conditions are not an excuse for being involved in an RTA as you should drive at a speed that is safe for the conditions of the road. When using road travel the most important aspect of your journey should be your safety and the safety of other road users. In adverse weather conditions extra special care should be taken to ensure you have a safe journey.
If you are driving and you are about to perform a manoeuvre take all the time necessary to look around you physically to check for oncoming vehicles. You should not rely solely on your mirrors as there are blind spots in them where you are unable to see vehicles coming from behind when they are in a certain position. If you are not completely confident about the speed or the distance of the oncoming vehicle you must wait until they have passed and the road is clear.
Before starting a claim for personal injury compensation after a road traffic accident you should speak to a qualified solicitor about your claim. Michael Lewin Solicitors offer free advice over the phone to anyone who thinks they have a valid claim for compensation.
Speeders actually only account for a low percentage of the car accidents that happen in the UK. Nonetheless accidents at speed often have much worse consequences and victims sustain much more severe injuries. You should always drive at a safe speed for the road you are on and you should always obey the speed limit; it is there for your safety.
Particular attention to hazards should be paid in towns and residential areas as the chances of having an accident involving a pedestrian are much higher. No one wants to be the one to have to live with knocking down a child whilst travelling at speed.
