The roads can be perilous at this time of year. The unpredictability of weather conditions, the increased traffic, as many see the holiday period as an opportunity to catch up with friends and family, not to mention increased shopping expeditions and office/xmas parties, can all contribute to a higher incidence of road traffic accidents.
Statistically the highest number of road traffic accidents happen in August according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and are in decline so do not feel you cannot leave the house for fear of an accident. Unfortunately accidents do happen and can have a major impact on the victims life.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, which was not your fault you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you are a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, a pedal cyclist or a driver, your personal injury claim would be made against the insurance company of the person driving the vehicle; which collided with you.
If you are a passenger in a car, van, bus, or coach; which is involved in a collision, your personal injury compensation claim would be made against the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident, whether that is the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in or a third-party driver (or both if necessary).
