Road traffic accidents take many forms and can impact a wide range of individuals. You may have been a passenger or driver in a car. Perhaps you were a pedestrian walking on the pavement or crossing the road or even a cyclist simply trying to get to work.
If the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
DSM Legal Solicitors are experienced road traffic accident solicitors operating in and around Warrington. Over the years, we’ve helped many people who have suffered an injury make a successful claim to recover any loss because of the accident.
Types of Road Traffic Injury
Road traffic injuries range from simple conditions such as whiplash to more severe injuries that require a lot of medical attention and can even threaten life. There’s not just the physical scars of a crash or accident to take into account either, many people are left to contend with psychological problems that can take time to get over.
Car accidents caused some 1,792 fatalities in 2016 and over 24,000 serious injuries. Nearly half of these affected car drivers and passengers. 25% of accidents involved pedestrians.
Accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. The driver who caused the accident may have been tired, wasn’t experienced at using the road conditions or was negligent or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Motorcyclists and cyclists are, of course, particularly vulnerable because they have little or no protection.
Traffic accidents don’t have to involve two vehicles. If you are driving on a road that has been badly maintained and crash, the fault could be down to the people who are supposed to repair that area. You may be driving a vehicle that has a defective part or there could be a failure of safety equipment that wasn’t your fault.
