The first and most important concern at the scene of a RTA is to make sure that if you are injured, that you get treated as soon as possible. Even if you think that you have been unharmed, you should have yourself checked out by a doctor as the effects of an accident can seriously impair a person’s common sense and judgement.
Road traffic accidents are normally caused by driver negligence. Common causes are intoxication, speeding, fatigue and aggressive driving. The roads would be very safe indeed if the factors mentioned above could only be eliminated. What many people do not fully appreciate is that there is often a very good chance of putting in a claim for compensation if you have sustained a road traffic accident injury. It is the legal right of anybody who has been injured in an accident that has been caused by another driver to put in a claim for compensation.
Because the average road traffic accident injury is likely to lead to loss of income through hospitalisation, recuperation from the injury and time away from one’s work or business, the compensation that can be claimed for will go a long way to helping fill that hole in the bank account.
