Oakwood Solicitors could help you claim HGV accident compensation if you have been injured by an HGV driver or if you are an HGV driver who has been injured by a third party. We helped Mr F successfully secure £1900.00 in personal injury compensation after he was involved in a UK road traffic collision.
Accidents involving HGV’s on the road can have very serious or even fatal consequences. An accident involving an HGV carries a much higher risk of a serious or fatal injury due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicles involved. The impact created by a wagon is so much more forceful than a car to car collision.
If you have been injured due to the fault of an HGV driver you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your injuries providing you start your claim within three years of the injury occurring. If you are the loved on of a fatal accident victim that was involved in an accident with an HGV you are also entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation and bereavement compensation; the sympathetic solicitors at Oakwood will be able to offer you their full support and expertise at this difficult time.
You can also claim personal injury compensation if you are an HGV driver that was involved in an accident caused by another road user whether they were a car driver van driver motorcyclist or a fellow HGV driver.
To find out about your eligibility to claim HGV accident compensation you need to speak to a specialist immediately. Oakwood Solicitors will assess your HGV accident case for free and offer you their advice about making a claim.
If you are a car driver there are a number of measures you can take to ensure your safety on a road that is being used by Heavy Goods Vehicles and Lorries:
? Always be aware if you are behind a lorry that they have a much greater blind spot than a car driver and they will not be able to see you at all if you are too close to the rear of their vehicle. There is also a blind spot alongside the lorry and if you are overtaking you may remain invisible to the driver of the lorry.
? In high winds do not attempt to overtake a high-sided HGV lorry; these vehicles are susceptible to being blown by the wind and may collide with the side of your car potentially having fatal effects.
