Road Traffic Accidents
Our roads may be safer than they were in previous years, but sadly many people are still killed in road traffic accidents and many others are seriously injured. According to the Department of Transport statistics for 2011:
- 1,901 people were killed on the road
- 23,122 people sustained serious injuries
- 178,927 people sustained minor injuries
Common types of car accident injuries
Car accidents cause various types of injuries depending on the conditions of the crash and the severity of the impact. Some common types of injuries people suffer from are:
- Neck injuries, for example whiplash
- Broken bones
- Brain and head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Facial injuries
- Psychological injuries
However, you can claim compensation for any injury you have sustained since you are fully entitled to be compensated for any pain and inconvenience you have suffered because of your injuries.
Is someone else to blame for the accident?
As with all compensation claims, it’s necessary to determine the cause of the accident; we need to decide if someone else is to blame.
Any claim you make will be made against the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident.
The most common causes of road traffic accidents are driver error, speed, intoxication and environmental factors. If someone else is found to be responsible for the accident, your claim has a high chance of success.
