The Transport Safety Research Centre is part of Loughborough University. The centre is responsible for conducting research into road safety and aims to teach future generations the skills needed to do so. With more than 38,000 deaths in 2008 on Europe’s roads – costing EU countries over €160 billion – the Transport Safety Research Centre is dedicated to reducing casualties caused by road traffic accidents.
The centre carries out basic and applied research in order to understand what causes crashes and propose new safety measures. They examine what causes road traffic accidents as well as peoples’ injuries, so that the effectiveness of mobility and safety technologies can be assessed.
The data gathered helps the government to develop new effective policies for road safety and allows the industry to improve transport services and products. The Transport Safety Research Centre also carries out research on the performance of vehicle safety systems, what impact accidents have on people’s health and influences that could affect road users’ behaviour.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, you may be able to claim compensation if somebody else was to blame for your injuries – contact a personal injury lawyer today to find out whether you have a viable claim.
Have you been injured in a car accident?
Even with measures to improve road safety in place, accidents can still happen, and if you were the driver or passenger in a car that was involved in an accident, you may have been injured. If you’re involved in a crash that is the fault of a third party – for example, the driver of the car you were travelling in, or the driver of another vehicle – then you may be able to claim compensation. It’s important to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident, to see whether you could claim.
