Do you ever worry about road safety? Many of us do, especially if we have children – we are concerned about them crossing the road safely, for a start. We also complain about people driving too fast, or driving when they’ve been drinking – and who hasn’t felt some annoyance at another driver who’s done something reckless?
The safety of Britain’s roads
The thing is, while we worry about road safety, we don’t need to be all that worried. Why? Britain’s roads are actually pretty safe, compared with the roads in other countries – and our safety record has been improving for many years.
There are still too many accidents, though, as these statistics from 2012 show:
- 1754 people died because of an accident on the road
- Over 23,000 were seriously injured
- Over 170,000 were slightly injured
At Accident Advice Helpline, as well as providing the services of an accident solicitor after accidents on the road in Winchester for people who need one, we want to see the road casualty figures going down. We’re sure you do, too.
The after-effects of accidents
After being injured in a road traffic accident, you could be in severe pain, whether you have to be hospitalised or whether you have to take a trip to your GP the following day.
As a result of the injuries, you might need to take time off work to recover. This could cause you to lose wages – and on top of that, you’ve got expenses that you wouldn’t normally have, such as childminding fees, prescription charges, and public transport fares.
That’s why it makes perfect sense to claim compensation through a solicitor. If you qualify to claim and you win your case, you will be awarded a sum of money that will help you to improve your situation. You can face the rest of your recovery period with a little more positivity.
