Road Traffic Accidents

Road traffic accidents can seriously affect you both physically and psychologically. If you've suffered following an accident which wasn't your fault then you should seriously consider making a claim for your injuries. It's not just motorists that can make a no win no fee road traffic accident claim; you might also be able to claim if you're a passenger, cyclist, motorcyclist or a passenger in a vehicle too.

What causes road traffic accidents?

It's difficult to say what the causes of road accidents are. This is because every accident is different and occurs under a different set of circumstances. While there are many different causes of accidents, research has shown that there are two main reasons behind collisions:

Speed of vehicle: Where a vehicle is moving at high speed there is a bigger risk of collisions, and as the speed goes up the risk increases, as does the severity of any crash that occurs. Research has also shown that vehicles travelling much slower than average also increase the risk of an accident.

Driver impairment: Alcohol is a major factor which can lead to driver impairment on the roads. But there are many other reasons for driver impairment, and all of these can cause accidents too. For example, poor eyesight, fatigue, use of medication or illegal drugs, distractions such as a mobile phone.

Road traffic accident injuries

Road accidents can lead to a range of serious injuries, including brain and head injuries such concussion or, more seriously, bruising or bleeding to the brain;  whiplash injuries to the neck; back injuries such as a strained back or fractured vertebrae; and injuries to the arms and legs.

Psychological injuries such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are also common complaints following the trauma of an accident on the road.

What to do following a road traffic accident

If you've been injured, it's important to keep any evidence of your accident, for insurance and legal reasons. This could be medical bills or certificates, or even photographic evidence. These things will help to support you if you decide to make a claim for compensation.
