You may be surprised to learn that, according to Road Safety Authority statistics, “per capita” car accidents in Dublin occur less frequently than anywhere else in the country. This has nothing to do with better roads or more adequate lighting – the majority of car accidents in Dublin actually occur on good, straight roads, during the day and in dry conditions.
The RSA believe that there are still so many car accidents in Dublin due to drivers driving through stop signs without looking, making improper overtaking manoeuvres and driving at excessive speeds – the single most frequent cause of a fatal car accident in Dublin. Car accidents, although proportionally less in Dublin than elsewhere, lead to pain, suffering and misery for their victims- who are often not to blame for the crash – and the family and friends of those killed in a car accident. Dublin pedestrians and cyclists can also be the innocent victims of a car accident in Dublin, with non-car users suffering more fatalities within the city than drivers of the vehicles themselves.
Have You Had a Car Accident in Dublin?
Amongst the many thousands of non-fatal car accidents in Dublin, the level of severity may vary between a slight knock at a complex road junction to the total write-off of your car and hospitalisation. Even if you are one of the “lucky” ones, you should still seek medical assistance after your accident and report the incident to the Gardai, who hold a Road Traffic Accident Report Book to record minor accidents where their attendance is not required. Failure to follow these procedures may not affect your entitlement for compensation after a car accident in Dublin, but following these procedures will support your case should the negligent party fail to admit liability.
Being involved in a car accident in Dublin can be a very emotive issue. Injuries suffered by yourself, friends and family members are compounded by the loss or serious damage to your car. Even when it is clear that another driver is to blame, you should try to remain calm, exchange particulars, seek medical attention and report the incident to the Gardai.
