Road traffic accidents happen every day in the UK, and many people are seriously injured in them. We do fare better than in the 1980s though, when with much less traffic on our roads the numbers for serious injuries were much higher, and 15 people a day lost their lives. That is down to 5 people a day dying in road traffic accidents, and the injury figures are reducing a little each year.
That is no comfort if you are the family of one of the 5 that have died today and what is even worse is if the accident they died in, was not their own fault.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your own fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation, and although we realise that this will not put the clock back to before the accident, making a personal injury claim in Brentwood can make the injuries a little easier to cope with.
The serious injuries that a road traffic accident can cause and why innocent victims make a personal injury claim in Brentwood
There is an endless list of injuries that can happen in road traffic accidents, just some of them being:
- Broken bones

These few suggestions are not all of the injuries that can happen by any means, just as cars are not the only vehicles that can be involved. Road traffic accidents can include pedestrians, passengers, cyclists, motorbike rider, buses, coaches lorries, tractors, HGV’s and any other vehicle that is on our roads.Open Claim Calculator
Some of the injuries that happen in any type of accident can change the life of the victim and those close to them and mean they cannot live in the same way ever again. This needs to be accounted for when you are claiming compensation, as well as a whole host of other things like expenses and loss of earnings.
A successful claim will include everything that has been affected by the accident and your injuries, whether that is your life or your finances, that is of course assuming you use a specialist law firm to make your claim.
