A new road safety initiative, The Honest Truth, launched in Dorset on 23rd September 2013. The road safety campaign, which began in Devon, aims to reduce the number of young drivers seriously injured or killed on the UK’s roads.
Dorset Fire and Rescue Service HQ invited driving instructors, local councillors and Dorset RoadSafe to the launch of the new road safety campaign, which aims to bring the public and private sector together in a bid to reduce deaths on the roads. The Road Safety Manager for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service commented, “The new international initiative was designed by the Devon Road Safety Partnership following the death of three young people. We have adopted it in Dorset as a new way of connecting with our young road users to support our Safe Drive Stay Alive and Dying to Drive presentations.”
Road safety campaigns such as this one can help to greatly reduce the number of accidents that occur on our roads; however accidents still have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time. If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident that was someone else’s fault, you could claim compensation for your injuries.
Injured in a collision?
If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident, you may have sustained some of the following injuries:
- Head injury or concussion
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
Injuries can range from minor to severe, or it may be that someone you love has been killed in a fatal road crash. Whatever your situation, if someone else’s careless driving has led to your accident, you may be able to make a claim. It’s important to take action to contact a personal injury lawyer within three years of your accident, as there’s usually a time limit in place to make a claim.
