Criss-crossed with an intricate network of major, urban and rural roads, Hull is often the scene of more or less serious accidents on the road. While roads as such are rarely to blame for such tragic incidents, some roads do carry a greater risk of potential traffic accidents than others.
The A1079, for example, is frequently the scene of motoring accidents. This road was, in fact, named as one of Britain’s 10 top dangerous roads in 2007. Another hotspot for road accidents is the A165 leading from Hull to Bridlington. This road used to carry a speed limit of 60 mph, but after a series of serious vehicle accidents involving overtaking at high speeds, the limit was reduced to 40 mph.
Car crash injuries
As mentioned above, the roads in question are not necessarily responsible for the many accidents that have occurred. More often than not, driver errors, excessive speeds (especially in bad weather conditions) and/or lack of attention were ultimately the cause of vehicle collisions.
Those injured by motoring accidents may be entitled to claim for compensation if the injuries they incurred were the result of another road user’s mistake. Claims can be initiated by anyone and will necessitate provision of supporting evidence. This includes witness statements; statements by attending police officers or medical personnel; photos of the scene (wherever possible) and documentation of the injured party’s injuries. Seeking medical attention immediately after car crash is therefore, essential as medical records will provide this type of evidence.
