Road traffic accidents in County Durham
According to a report by the Road Safety Foundation charity, the most dangerous stretch of road in the North East is the 3.6 miles stretch of the A193 from between the A19 and A1058 junctions in North Tyneside where there have been a number of fatal and serious crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists. The report notes that the North East as a whole had the UK’s third highest rate of fatal and serious crashes during one specific two-year period, costing the local economy around £390m.
In spite of recent improvements, 128 miles of the North East’s roads are still classified at a level of “unacceptable high risk” according to the Road Safety Foundation. Statistics show that on North East roads there were five fatal or serious crashes per billion vehicle kilometres travelling on motorways; 17 on dual carriageways and 48.4 on single carriageways.
The most dangerous time of the day to drive is twilight according to research. One in every seven (14.4 per cent) road collisions in the whole of the North East occur during dawn and dusk, between 5am and 7am or 6pm and 8pm – according to Department of Transport figures. County Durham experienced the most accidents on its roads during twilight hours, accounting for 15.4 per cent of accidents on County Durham roads during summer twilight hours, rising to 16.7 per cent in the winter months.

Whiplash accidents in County Durham
When people think of whiplash they automatically assume that such injuries relate only to car accidents. This is not the case.

Whiplash can be brought about as a result of slips, trips and fall accidents, or through sporting injuries, or injuries from extreme sports.
In many cases, whiplash is simply treated with rest and painkillers, but in the case of more serious injuries, you may be required to have medical treatments, and physiotherapy. If you’ve suffered whiplash accidents in County Durham, but you can’t find a personal injury solicitor in County Durham who will take your claim seriously, it’s time to talk to Accident Advice Helpline about making a claim. Call us now.
