Fatal Road Traffic Accident Claims

Road accidents can be incredibly dangerous to everyone involved. As these accidents usually occur at high speeds the consequences of an impact can be incredibly brutal and can often eventuate in a fatality. Although in recent years many companies have worked to make our cars as safe as possible, there is still the chance that a side-on collision or a high speed crash can cause the loss of life. If you have a loved one that has lost their life in a car accident through no fault of their own, then you may be able to claim compensation on their behalf.

The loss of life can have a great impact on any family member, friend or associate. So if you know someone who has lost their life as a result of a car accident that wasn’t their fault then you may be able to claim compensation from the person at fault to cover any emotional distress that you and your family and friends may be going through, as well as any loss of income to the victim’s family.

What causes fatal road accidents?

Although we do have some of the most modern technology at our disposal when it comes to car safety features, unfortunately it doesn’t always work. Fatal road accidents can be caused by a number of factors but are most frequently caused by speed, or the driver of the offending vehicle being under the influence of a substance such as alcohol or drugs.

Although being under the influence is illegal in many countries throughout the world, unfortunately it does not stop many people from continuing to drive that way. One of the major causes of fatal road accidents is head trauma and this is often suffered upon impact, the force of a speeding vehicle or external object can cause the head to violently strike a part of the car, resulting in brain damage and eventually death.

When can I claim for a fatal road accident?

If you have been in a road accident for the following reasons you may be able to claim:

  • If you have been hit by a drunk driver or driver under the influence of drugs
  • If you were hit by a speeding car
  • If you were hit by a driver on the wrong side of the road
  • If you were hit by a driver not obeying the road rules
