    Potential accident black spot causes safety concerns for residents

    By David Brown on September 16, 2014

    After an accident on the Brokenstone road in Blackburn in which the driver of a Mercedes had to be cut from his vehicle, concerned residents have called for changes to be made to the speed limit near the potential accident black spot. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured in the accident after the Mercedes mounted the kerb and hit two trees on Horden View. The speed limit in the area drops suddenly from 60mph to 30mph and numerous accidents have already occurred in the area.

    The local council recently disclosed plans of a possible new development of more than 400 homes, which would increase traffic in the potential accident black spot area. Following the accident, the council received numerous emails from concerned residents. The road is home to many families with children and Councillor Hardman, who fielded emails from residents, said, “It is 60mph until just before Horden view when it becomes 30mph. It is a bad bend and it is very narrow and you get cars coming down the hill at 60mph, so it is very dangerous.”

    Road traffic accidents have the potential to happen anywhere, but hopefully the local council will take action to prevent further accidents from happening at this black spot.

    Injuries caused in road traffic accidents

    Although the driver in the above story was lucky enough to escape uninjured, many other people are not so lucky. The types of injuries sustained in a road traffic accident can include:

    • Concussion or head injuries
    • Lacerations
    • Bruises
    • Broken bones
    • Brain injury
    • Whiplash
    • Back or neck injuries

    If you have been involved in a car crash or another type of road traffic accident and believe somebody else is to blame, why not contact a personal injury lawyer to see if you could claim compensation? You could receive compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of earnings due to time off work and medical treatment costs.
