Driving Instructor Accidents

Injured In An Accident With A Driving Instructor?

One minute you are minding your own business and simply trying to improve your driving skills, the next minute someone has driven into the back of you at a junction and your neck is stiff and sore. If you have been injured in an accident with a driving instructor, what should you do? Should you let him or her take care of your claim, or should you make your own enquiries? The purpose of this article is to provide you with the information that you need to be able to make the right decision. In my 20 years of helping people to recover compensation after driving instructor accidents I have discovered a lot of information. I share it with you to make your life as easy as possible after your traffic accident. I hope you find it helpful, Nicholas Jervis.

Reasons For Driving Instructor Accidents

There are a significant number of reasons why you might be injured in an accident when you are undertaking a driving lesson. Some of the main reasons are as follows:

  • Someone else driving into the back of you at a junction;
  • Someone pulling out in front of you on a main road;
  • Your driving instructor causing an accident when driving you to a new location or driving you home; and
  • Your driving instructor causing someone to drive into the back of you by applying the emergency brakes when there was no need to do so.

Why These Reasons Mean You Must Seek Your Own Legal Advice

At least two of the above reasons mean that it is absolutely vital that you seek your own legal advice following a collision when you are in your driving instructor's car. You might not even think about it at the time, but the accident might be fully or even partially the responsibility of your driving instructor. Only a specialist road accident claim solicitor will be able to assess the full facts and determine who was at fault for the accident.

If you are worried that talking about a claim against your driving instructor will cause him any problems, you should not. Your driving instrutor will have full insurance to protect him against accident claims made against him as it is likely to be a fairly regular occurrence for him. Therefore, it will not cause him any difficulties and you must remember that your primary duty is to ensure that you are properly protected and receive the best advice for you.

Why A Driving Instructor Might Want You To Use His Solicitor

In the event that you are injured whilst having a driving lesson, your driving instructor might be quite persuasive in asking you to use his solicitor to pursue your claim. This might be because he receives a commission from the solicitor for each person who he refers to them. You really must obtain your own independent legal advice to ensure that your needs are fully taken care of.
