Drivers are at a higher risk of being involved in a road traffic accident at night and thus sustaining personal injury. Accidents on country roads at night are common due to the fact that they are very badly lit and can often be narrow, winding roads. Thompsons accident compensation lawyers have a vast knowledge of dealing with accident claims from minor accidents to fatal accidents and they could help you claim compensation if you have been injured in a road traffic accident.
One cause of road traffic accidents at night is drivers driving at a high speed and driving dangerously due to the fact that they think that there are less people on the roads. Although there may be fewer drivers on the road at night, accidents can still happen and if you are involved in a road traffic accident which was due to the negligence of another driver, you may be able to bring a compensation claim against them.
It is more dangerous to drive at night due to the fact that a driver’s vision is impaired and they are not able to predict the road or see the road surface. The darkness may also prevent drivers from seeing obstacles on the road which can cause road traffic accidents.
Safety tips to avoid being involved in a road traffic accident at night are:
Cat’s eyes on the road are one of the most useful safety devices in preventing road traffic accidents. Cat’s eyes define the road lanes in the dark and they can prevent cars from drifting into other lanes and causing crashes with other vehicles.
