Do you drive? If so, you should be concerned about road safety. You don’t need to worry too much about it, because Britain’s roads are pretty safe – and they’ve become even safer in recent years.
But you do need to be careful on the roads. In 2012, there were:
- Over 1700 deaths on the roads
- More than 23,000 people seriously injured
- Nearly 171,000 people slightly injured
That’s just what was reported, too. There could be as many as 880,000 annual road casualties on Britain’s roads, according to RoSPA.
What to do if you get injured
The most important thing to do if you’re injured in a road traffic accident is to take care of your health. Get checked out at a hospital, or go to your GP as soon as possible, depending on how serious your injuries are.
While you’re recovering, you should get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline and seek compensation through experienced claim solicitors in Wiltshire.
If you qualify for compensation, and experienced claim solicitors in Wiltshire take on your case, you could be awarded a sum of money that will help you a lot. Part of the payout received in successful claims is for the accident and injury, and part is for the expenses that you have incurred as a result of your accident.
This means that you recover your losses and have a bit extra to help you get your life back on track. Injuries caused by road traffic accidents can cause a lot of misery, and compensation goes some way towards making things better.
All our solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline work on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis, too.
Are you entitled to seek compensation with experienced claim solicitors in Wiltshire?
You should be eligible to claim if your accident was caused by someone else. In the case of a road traffic accident, this is usually another driver. It doesn’t matter whether they were speeding, drunk, or they weren’t paying attention – if they caused the accident, you could receive a payout.
Getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to make it happen is easy: we have a 24/7 hotline, so you can ring up and talk to a professional, friendly adviser whenever you like.
Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and an adviser will guide you through the process of claiming.
Alternatively, text “claim365” to 88010 and await a call from one of our team.
Whichever contact method you choose, once you’re telling your adviser all about what happened to you, you will feel as though a weight has been lifted. At Accident Advice Helpline, we care deeply about our clients, and this shows in the way we treat our claimants: with empathy and sensitivity at all times.
