What Is A Car Accident Claim?
Every road user has a duty of care to keep one another safe when navigating the road. The Highway Code provides guidance and rules for all road users to follow. The duty of care each road user has is not equal and those operating vehicles that have the greatest chance of causing harm have the greatest responsibility.
In some cases, someone might fail to uphold the duty of care they owed you, causing you to sustain harm in a road traffic accident. If you have sustained an injury following a road traffic accident in Plymouth, you may be able to make a claim as long as you can establish that another road user has been negligent. You will also need to prove that their negligence is the cause of your injury.
