Lorry Accident Compensation Claims
Because of their large size, there is generally a higher risk driving near a HGV than there are with other, smaller vehicles.
Inexperienced drivers can be particularly vulnerable to lorry accidents, especially on motorways. Those not used to long-distance driving are often not aware of the importance of giving the vehicles more space and margin for error.
If you believe that a lorry driver’s actions have caused your accident then we can help. We offer expert lorry accident compensation claims advice. Any questions you may have about your accident, our trained claims handlers are available to take your call.
Examples of Lorry Accident Claims
Unfortunately there are a number of lorry drivers that don’t pay the due care and attention on the roads and therefore cause accidents, which can sometimes have fatal consequences.
Despite just 8% of road accidents involving lorries, they contribute to 26% of all casualties. Lorry accidents commonly happen when:
- There is a head-on collision with a lorry on a single carriageway road
- A lorry cuts in front of a vehicle causing them to go into the back of them
- The lorry driver does not look for/see a passing vehicle on the motorway before moving out
- The lorry jackknifes in wet/slippery conditions causing multiple collisions
- Vehicles in front of the lorry brake too quickly for it to slow down in time
Around 20,000 people are injured every year in a lorry accident, whilst nearly twice as many HGV’s are involved in fatal accidents that cars.
