One of the most upsetting accidents that a personal injury solicitor will deal with will involve injuries to children. Sadly, many of these are road traffic accidents. Millions of children are transported around the country in vehicles every day and regularly play and walk next to roads so it is hardly surprising that some get hurt in road traffic accidents. Some parents find themselves having to hunt for a personal injury solicitor to help them claim compensation in Datchworth for their own injuries and their children’s injuries.
Advice Helpline Accident was set up more than 15 years ago to help people who were desperate to find the best personal injury solicitor to help with a compensation claim.
The facts about children and road traffic accidents
We all know that children get hurt in road traffic accidents but few of us realise the true extent of this problem. Firstly, very few people understand the extent of the issue – in fact around 5,000 children under the age of 16 die or are seriously injured on UK roads each year. That is a terrible waste of human life and a tragic event for 5,000 families to have to deal with. All this is in a country with one of the best road safety records in the world!
