Have you been in a road accident that caused you injury? If so, you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Exeter, provided that the accident was caused by another driver.
How common are road accidents?
Fortunately, vehicle collisions are probably less common than you would think – or at least, reported road casualties are. Britain’s roads are safer than many drivers realise, with injuries and deaths having decreased over several decades.
The statistics for 2012 are as follows:
- 1754 people were killed on the road
- 23,039 were seriously injured
- 170,930 were slightly injured
Still too many
Even one death on our roads is one too many, though. Many accidents that lead to injury or death could be avoided if people took more care – human error is a factor in 95% of all road accidents, and is the sole cause of more than three quarters of them.
If you’re unlucky enough to encounter a careless driver, you could be injured, and this could mean that you have to take time off work to recover. You could be in a lot of pain, and experience inconvenience – that holiday in the sun might have to be cancelled, for example, or that family gathering planned for next week could need postponing.
