    Introducing Road Traffic Accidents



    Car accidents, motorcycle accidents and other accidents involving road users of some description or another happen on a daily basis. Many are caused by drivers being distracted in some way, while others could have been avoided if drivers had kept to speed limits.

    Other injuries by road accident were the result of drink-driving. Often cyclists and pedestrians are injured by cars not seeing or simply ignoring them. Whatever the reason, many of these injuries are serious, and sadly, some of them are fatal.

    Statistics of injuries by road traffic accidents

    According to figures released by the Dept. of Transport (Main Report 2012, Reported Road Casualties in Britain), a total of 145,571 personal-injury road traffic accidents were reported to British police. Out of these injuries, 23,039 were serious. Sadly, 1,754 people died as a result of injuries by road accident.

    Reported child (age up to 15 years) casualties totalled 17,251, with 2,272 children being either seriously injured or killed. While this means that both adult and child casualties are down from the previous year, these figures are still incredibly high, especially when considering that most of these accidents could have been avoided.

    Claim potential of the image

    It appears that the van was catapulted into the window of the Chinese restaurant. There is a good chance that the driver and potentially innocent bystanders were seriously injured, if not killed, by this accident.

    Fault assessmentWithout knowing exactly what happened here, it is difficult to establish who was at fault. The accident may have been the van driver’s fault, or it may have been caused by another road user.

    Claim potentialDepending on who is ultimately found to be at fault, the van driver and/ or people in front of/ within the restaurant receiving injuries through this accident may be able to claim personal injury compensation. The restaurant owner may also be able to claim for damages.

    Claiming road accident injury compensation

    If you were involved in a car or motorcycle accident that was not your fault and were injured in the process, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation.

You can assess your eligibility and chances of a claim succeeding via the compensation calculator on this law firm’s website, or you can call the free-phone number, which is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, and speak to an adviser.
