    Top 5 accident hotspots in Northumberland


    Whenever you choose to take a drive in your car, you are automatically at risk of experiencing a road traffic accident. Regardless of how good you are at driving or how assertive you are regarding road regulations and other drivers, there is always someone on the road who isn’t as cautious as you.

    Just like every other city in the UK, Northumberland is a bustling city with busy roads. With a high number of residents, visitors and businesses, traffic volumes are higher and as such this can lead to a greater number of road traffic accidents.

    Injured in a  road traffic accident: The next steps

    Being involved in a road traffic accident can be a terrifying experience, whether you are in Northumberland or any other area of the UK. A crash in a quiet town can cause just as much trauma as those in cities. In the case of a road traffic accident, it is important that you remain calm and gather the following information.

    You will need to collate details of:

    • Where and when the accident happened
    • Contact details of any other third-party drivers involved in the accident
    • Registration plate details of any other drivers involved in the road traffic accident
    • Witness contact information
    • Photographs of damage to all vehicles involved

    Although emotions may be high, it is important not to argue or place blame for the accident. In the case of the collision causing injury, remember to call an ambulance as soon as possible. In the case of a fire or an obstruction, the fire and police services would also need to be contacted.
