The Four Most Common Car Accident Causes
The most common cause of vehicle accidents and injuries is distraction. The regularity of vehicle usage is so large now, that many drivers do not always treat the task with the respect that it deserves.
London (I-Newswire) January 7, 2013 - Improved car safety features and fittings paired with increased driver education has led to road safety growing at a steady rate. Despite this, there are still a large number of people making a Car Accident Injury Claim every year. The astronomical amount of vehicles on the road simply serves to increase the risk of accident and injury. Here are the four most common car accident causes in the UK. This knowledge will help you avoid them to the best of your ability and if you are unfortunate, help you claim the compensation that you may be entitled to.
The most common cause of vehicle accidents and injuries is distraction. The regularity of vehicle usage is so large now, that many drivers do not always treat the task with the respect that it deserves. Sometimes the mind will not be completely dedicated to the job in hand. Roadside advertisements, radio chatter or discussions with passengers are just some of the distractions that could lead to potentially devastating accidents. It is imperative that concentration is directed and focussed at all times.
In a similar fashion, it is vitally important that a driver maintains a high energy level at all times. Fatigue or tiredness on the behalf of a vehicle operator can lead to a myriad of different accidents and injuries. Falling asleep at the wheel can potentially lead to devastating consequences. Even without falling asleep, fatigue can lead to a loss of concentration. If you have been hit by a driver suffering from fatigue and tiredness then you could claim significant compensation with the help of Accident Claims Solicitors.
Partaking in any of a number of non-driving activities such as eating or talking on a mobile phone can potentially lead to a dangerous accident. If the driver’s concentration is not at its peak or highest ebb, then a significant accident may be caused. It is vitally important that concentration is focussed entirely on driving whilst behind the wheel of a vehicle.
If the road and weather conditions are adverse then it is important that more care than usual is taken to remain safe. Wet weather can lead to slippery surfaces and decrease the control that a driver has upon their vehicle. Stopping distances may be increased due to the lack of tort. If a driver is not taking the conditions into consideration then a litany of different dangers may present themselves. This could lead to injuries such as whiplash and subsequent Whiplash Compensation Claims.
