Lorry Accident Claim

Lorry accident compensation can help to ease the financial and emotional strain caused by a terrifying accident.

As with all traffic accident claims the injuries caused by a collision can range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as broken bones, amputation or even loss of life.

Causes of HGV Road Traffic Accidents

High winds are one of the most common causes of lorry accidents. High sided vehicles are at an increased risk of overturning in high winds, especially in areas that have open spaces such as motorways and bridges.

How a vehicle’s load is stored also effects the likelihood of a lorry accident occurring. Checking the cargo before starting a journey will ensure that the materials are stored safely and should not move during transit.

An obvious cause of any road traffic accident is fatigue, however, particularly for HGV drivers this is a frequent cause of accidents. Due to long journeys, often travelling across countries, drivers are advised to take regular breaks to stretch their legs and rest.

Despite this it is common for drivers to skip breaks in order to finish the journey in less time. This endangers both the HGV driver’s safety and other motorists, it is essential that breaks are taken to prevent otherwise unnecessary accidents.

If you have been involved in a lorry accident that wasn’t your fault you will be entitled to make a compensation claim.
