Car crashes are sadly a common occurrence although authorities are working towards reducing the number of serious injuries and fatalities on the roads every year. There are still some people who remain ignorant of their responsibilities on the road and many drivers do not know their legal obligations despite being experienced road users.
There is plenty of information out there for drivers and it is a good idea to keep on top of the latest in road safety information as you could save a life by following some simple rules and advice. Many road safety charities, such as Brake, offer free road safety seminars and courses for the public and many road users could benefit from keeping their awareness of safety rules fresh and up to date.
Car crashes can cause serious head injuries or other injuries to those involved, and may even cause a fatality in the worst case scenario. To reduce your chances of injury, always wear your seat-belt and ensure that any airbags or other safety mechanics in your vehicle are in working order.
Check your tyres regularly, and check your vehicle overall as a simple maintenance failure could cause a fatal accident. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and are considering claiming compensation for a car crash head injury, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.
Potential injuries sustained in a crash
The most common injury sustained in a collision or crash is whiplash which is a type of neck injury caused by a sudden movement of the head forwards, sideways or backwards. After this, many people sustain head injuries from being pushed forward into the front window or the front car seat.
Head injuries can cause mild concussion or they can be more serious causing damage to the skull or brain. If you are thinking of claiming compensation for a car crash head injury, give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
