The WHO report on car accident claims how much money is lost because of accidents
The World Health Organisation (WHO) report on car accident claims how much money is lost every year due to car accidents. Their report is staggering and reports that $518 billion is the total economic impact due to vehicle accidents.
Most car accidents are caused by drivers travelling too fast for the conditions on the road, this trait is a global phenomenon road safety campaigners have said for many years more must be done to make drivers reduce their speed when driving. These figures from the World Health Organisation certainly present a compelling case from a purely economic point of view.
Of course reports on car accident claims how much is lost in terms of finance is all well and good but there is another cost which is more difficult to measure as it is not just financial. This is the social aspect of the cost of human lives in terms of grief and psychological costs.
Companies like Accident Advice Helpline are an independent company who specialise in accident compensation claims and whilst they fully understand the financial implications of an accident compensation claim they are mindful of the effects that car accidents can have on people’s lives. Accident Advice Helpline work with 200 legal partners all of who are experts in accident compensation including road traffic accidents.
Victims who have used the service offered by AAH have said in their car accident claims how much help the team at AAH were and how professional the legal teams were. Road traffic accidents are an unfortunate part of human life and with an estimated 600,000 road traffic accidents every year on the roads in the UK until something different is done regarding road safety, they look like they are going to stay a part of everyday life.
Over one third of road traffic accidents are caused by people who are at work or on work business, this accounts for 20 fatalities every week and 250 serious injuries every week in the UK according to the latest Royal Society for the prevention of Accidents (ROSA). Employers need to address the work ethics being instilled into staff.
Victims injured by employees at work have called Accident Advice Helpline in relation to their car accident claims and have said how useful the service offered was by AAH. Of course it is not always the public claiming compensation for injuries caused by people working. It is some time the people who are at work and are involved in a car accident whilst at work who could be eligible for workplace injuries.
The simplest way to find out if a person is eligible to claim compensation is to call the Freephone telephone number 0800 689 0500 and speak to an adviser on AAH’s team. They offer the opportunity to talk to an expert legal professional who can assess whether an individual has a valid compensation claim. They can then choose whether to proceed further with the claim.
