Factors In Car And Road Accident For Making Claims

 

Before you can make a decision as to whether or not you should go about hiring personal injury solicitors to represent you, it is better for you that you first have knowledge about what a personal injury claim is all about.

It is a fact of life that most people think that a personal injury claim is simply and only a car or a road traffic accident. They completely ignore the personal injury suffered due to a slip or fall or a work injury or accident.

A personal injury solicitor can work on a claim for compensation where as a result someone has suffered a personal injury, either of a physical or an emotional nature, which was caused by the negligence and fault of a third party. If there is no negligence involved then there is no personal injury claim. There must be negligence involved in the accident that caused the injury, whether intentional or unintentional, on the part of another, for a personal injury claim to be valid.

Although there are various factors and circumstances that can influence car accident claims, the major factor to consider is negligence. In virtually all countries, any person injured in a car accident that wants to make a car accident claim will need to show negligence and liability in the accident in order to make a car accident claim. Any Personal Injury solicitor will make negligence the key of making a car accident claim. This however, is often not as straight forward as it seems, as negligence is often disputed by third parties. This is often the case in car accident claims as all drivers, especially male, think that they are wonderful behind the wheel and never make mistakes!

The new major element in road traffic accidents is the growing increase in motor bike accidents. At least when you are involved in a car accident in car you have some protection in an accident. On a motor bike you have minimal protection even if you are correctly attired and are wearing a suitable helmet.

 

Other Countries Road Accident Issues

 

In Sri Lanka there is an unusual factor that involves the statistics of Tuk Tuk taxis involved in road traffic accidents. Tuk Tuk taxis are three wheel machines that use pedal power to get around. Road traffic accidents involving Tuk Tuk taxis claimed a record 3,000 lives last year and another 100,000 people are seriously injured in traffic accidents each year in Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan government is desperately trying to regulate the Tuk Tuk taxis as the vast majority of the three wheeler Tuk Tuk taxis in Sri Lanka have been imported from neighbouring India and most of them are in very poor condition.

Pressure is certainly being heaped on Governments to reform the law on Personal Injuries coming from road traffic accidents. In the UK Road traffic accident Personal Injury solicitors have accused the UK Ministry of Justice of cherry picking data from road traffic accidents to justify its pursuit of a policy agenda that undermines the rights of motor accident casualties to make car accident claims. Donna Scully, a partner at Carpenters, well known Personal Injury solicitors, also commented on the findings: ‘This is important. The MoJ cannot bury its head in the sand and ignore half a million RTA casualties that go unreported each year.’ She also commented that ‘Using the DfT figures, there will still be 700,000 or so road accident casualties even after the governments’ reforms. These are real people that will still need insurers and lawyers to look after them.’

Whatever the country Car accident claims are here to stay and all we can hope for is that drivers will slow down and drive more carefully.
