    Car crash hotspot in Chorley gets traffic calming measures after years of accidents

    By David Brown on July 12, 2014

    After years of campaigning by local residents, a notorious car crash hotspot in Whittle-le-Woods, Chorley is finally going to get traffic calming measures. Residents hope these measures will finally slow down approaching traffic and prevent a potential fatality from occurring.

    Recent reports have indicated there have been five overturned cars on the road in the past year alone. No major injuries were suffered in these accidents but without measures being taken to slow traffic down it is feared the next person will not be so lucky. Rumble strips have been agreed upon and they should be in place before the year is out. Hopefully this will reduce the number of accidents that occur in the area.

    Seeking compensation for injuries caused in a car accident

    There are many areas around the country that could be deemed to be more dangerous for drivers for various reasons. The car crash hotspot in Chorley is suspected to be more dangerous because drivers approach the bend in the road too fast and end up overturning in some cases as a result.

    Of course you don’t need to be the driver at fault in order to be injured in a road accident. If you have been injured in an accident in the last three years it is worth consulting a professional lawyer to see whether there was negligence involved on the part of the other person or people involved. If there was you might be able to make a no win, no fee claim for compensation. This holds true regardless of whether you were driving, or riding a bike or were even a pedestrian at the time.
