    Accident and injury claims


    Accident and injury claims

    Accident and injury claims are a stressful business.

    A person who has been injured by a third party and who is seeking compensation needs to ensure they will make the best possible case.

    It would be good if we could learn to become a more safety conscious society. First and foremost we should be aware of keeping ourselves safe and avoiding circumstances of accident and injury and of putting others at risk too.

    Best facts about accident and injury incidents and claims

    Every hour one person dies as a result of an accident and injury in the UK and thousands more each year are injured slightly or seriously. These are shocking statistics.

    Accidents at home cause around 4,000 deaths and 2.7 million visits to A&E. Who would have thought living at home could be so dangerous.

    The stairs are the most dangerous place in the house and falling down stairs is one of the greatest causes of accident and injury. Old people who fall are liable to die from hypothermia if they are unable to get up again.

    Sleepiness and drowsiness cause 20% of accidents on motorways and the public need to be more aware of the dangers of it.

    It is just as dangerous to use a hands-free mobile phone as a hands-on while driving, because it is still a distraction.

    Six million injuries per annum happen at the workplace.

    Left-handed people appear to be more accident prone than right-handed people.
