Car accident in Market Drayton
A range of factors can cause car accidents including distractions, speeding, intoxication and tiredness. Environmental factors, such as faulty traffic lights, bad weather conditions and potholes, can also contribute to accidents on the roads.
While advances in the latest vehicle safety technologies have contributed to a decrease in the number of serious injuries sustained following car accidents, injuries caused by seatbelts and airbags are on the increase. These injuries include but are not limited to:
• Broken ribs
• Neck and back strains
