Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims

Drunk driving related road traffic accidents are the single biggest knock-on cause of fatal road traffic accidents in the UK. Last year, nearly 1,500 people were killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents related to drink driving. This number is the lowest it's ever been since records began, and it's gradually improving. This is wonderful news, but it means that if you're unfortunate enough to be involved in a drink driving related road traffic accident you would feel even more unlucky than you would have otherwise. The good news is that the chances of you or a member of your family being involved in any road traffic accident, let alone one in which drink driving is a factor, is extremely low, and we all hope that such an incident never happens to anyone we know.

 

Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims But it would be unwise to write off entirely the possibility of such a thing happening. If you were involved in a road traffic accident, you'd be right to be well prepared to deal with the aftermath in a way that avoids additional trauma and stress as much as that's possible. If you've ever been involved in a road traffic accident where the other party was at fault, you've probably already heard all about the high rate of likelihood that they were over the legal limit of blood alcohol content, which is 0.08% in the UK. And as for how this correlates with road traffic accidents – in randomly submitted blood alcohol level tests, as much as 0.03 of drivers were found to be over the drunk driving limit. This probably doesn't sound like a worryingly high amount to you, but consider that on an average day you'll probably pass far more than three hundred other drivers – for every three hundred other vehicles you come across, one of them is statistically unfit to drive. Proper vigilance and caution is always necessary when navigating the roads, as a drunk driving related road traffic accident is always a possibility, however remote.

 

If you've been involved in a road traffic accident in which the other driver (or even the driver of a vehicle in which you were a passenger!) was over the legal limit of blood alcohol content, there can be no doubt in anyone's mind that the accident was not your fault. In a situation like this, you will certainly be entitled to claim compensation for the physical and emotional costs of your personal injuries.
