    Road accident figures in Barrow and South Cumbria highlight blackspots

    By David Brown on January 22, 2015

    A Freedom of Information request by the Evening Mail revealed that between January 2012 and October 2014, 365 people were injured in road traffic collisions in Barrow. Of these road accident figures, four people were fatally injured, with 41 serious injuries and 320 slight injuries.

    Road accident figures also revealed that Abbey Road in Barrow was an accident blackspot – it’s one of the town’s busiest roads. Other blackspots included Hindpool Road, Roose Road, Greengate Street and Park Road over the three-year period.

    Inspector Ben Swinson from South Cumbria Operational Support Unit expressed his views, “Whilst the number of collisions in the Barrow area are consistent over the past few years, one fatal road traffic collision is one too many. Throughout 2015 officers will continue with campaigns designed to promote road safety and hopefully decrease the number of collisions that occur. We do however, need the help of motorists in order to achieve our aim of reducing the number of serious or fatal collisions by asking them to drive in a safe and responsible manner.”

    If you have been injured in a road traffic collision through no fault of your own, it may be possible to make a claim for personal injury compensation, but don’t miss out – there’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim.

    Has someone you love been killed in a road accident?

    Losing a loved one in a car crash is devastating, and the last thing you may feel like doing is making a claim for personal injury compensation on their behalf. However, you could claim compensation for their pain and suffering, as well as any financial losses their death has caused. For example, if your husband is the sole provider for your family and is killed in a road traffic collision, this will be taken into account when you make a claim for compensation, and could mean you will receive a higher settlement.
