Merseyside is a famous county in the north-west of England, within which you’ll find the city of Liverpool. Around 1.38 million people live in the county, which faces the Irish Sea along its western border. With such a large population, it would be highly unusual to go through a 12-month period without a few car accidents taking place. Fortunately, car accident claims in Merseyside aren’t very common, although people do explore the possibilities of claiming when they know someone else caused their accident to happen.
Common injuries suffered in accidents on the roads include whiplash. It’s also common to get bruising from seatbelts, and this can be extensive, depending on the speed the accident happened at.
Is it possible to avoid car accidents?
Not all the time, no. Even if you are a careful and competent driver, you never know who you will encounter on the roads. If you drive defensively, you can avoid many situations where you might otherwise have had an accident. For example, keeping your distance from the car in front means you have more time to react if they take unusual or sudden action.
However, there are still times when others do things to cause an accident and you have no way of avoiding it. In this case, you could be hurt even though you did nothing wrong. It’s hard to cope with injuries caused like this, because you wonder whether you might have avoided it, even though you know you could not have done. Even if the other person was injured too, you know you have been hurt through their actions.
