Driver error is the most common cause of road accidents. Contributing factors commonly include inappropriate or excessive speed, driver distraction or intoxication and tiredness.
Non-fatal injuries can naturally involve anything from bruising and soft tissue injuries (including whiplash) to catastrophic limb loss or life-changing head and spinal injuries.
Being involved in a road accident can obviously be an extremely traumatic experience. However, if you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, whether as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian, you may be able to claim compensation. Pursuing a claim may be daunting to some people but it is important to remember that all drivers should by law be insured. Such insurance policies exist to cover the cost of claims. Where the driver is uninsured or untraced, a claim can be made against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).
