Some road traffic accidents are categorised as fatal accidents – this is where, tragically, someone has lost their life in the incident. They are the most serious type of car accident case and are thankfully very rare. Having said that, it is a sad fact that an average of five people are killed every day on the roads in the UK, and the law of averages dictate that some fatal road traffic accidents will occur in the Seaton Carew area.
Other road traffic accidents involve ‘serious injuries,’ which include spinal and head injuries for which the injured person may require surgery and a long stay in hospital. Accident Advice Helpline can help the victims to claim for help with childcare, household care and personal care for the injured person. In the most extreme cases, there may even have to be adaptions to the home. These types of injury are not rare – over 23,000 people are seriously injured on UK roads every year, and that means around 63 people a day. Many of these will have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault and will need the help of Accident Advice Helpline and possibly an injury lawyer in Seaton Carew.
Many more road traffic accidents result in slight injuries. There are around 200,000 of these a year, which works out at around 550 a day.

- You were not at fault for the accident;
- You received medical attention for your injuries; and
- The accident was in the last three years.
