    Car accident negligence in Bristol


    Car accident negligence in Bristol

    A road traffic accident is when a vehicle collides with something; this could be another vehicle, an animal, a pedestrian or a tree. Around 200,000 people are injured in road accidents in the UK every year. The accidents range from a mild light collision resulting in non-severe injuries, to head-on collisions sometimes resulting in death. If you have been involved in an accident, you may be able to make a claim for car accident negligence in Bristol.

    Road traffic injuries which lead to death are mostly among the young aged between 15-29 years. Half of the people who die in road traffic accidents tend to be vulnerable road users, such as cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.

    Injuries from car accident negligence in Bristol and all over the UK cause a great amount of economic loss for the victims, their families and the nation as a whole. This is due to the cost of treatments and a loss in wages.

    If you are involved in a road traffic accident then there are various injuries you could sustain:

    • Cuts and bruises
    • Head injuries – even brain damage
    • Whiplash
    • Broken bones
    • Damaged joints

    All of these can be very painful and have an impact on people’s lives. There are many causes of car accident negligence in Bristol and different circumstances under which an accident can happen, which usually have an effect on the types of injuries sustained.
