When driving in the West Midlands, roads are not especially dangerous compared to the rest of the UK but eight roads have been picked out as the most dangerous in Warwickshire.
It is important to stick to road traffic rules and avoid distractions to avoid road traffic accidents while driving. If you were injured in an accident on the road in the last three years which was somebody else’s fault then you can make a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has years of experience dealing with exactly this sort of claim and you can call our Freephone number for help today.
