Road traffic accidents in Lisburn
Lisburn is one of the constituent cities that make up the Dublin-Belfast corridor region which has a population of just under 3 million. This corridor is obviously the location for numerous road accidents. Research has shown that, over the course of just one year, there were 5,729 police recorded road traffic collisions in Northern Ireland. Most of these occurred on the Ormeau Road in South Belfast, the Upper Newtownards Road in east Belfast, the Hillsborough Road in Lisburn, the Falls Road in west Belfast and north Belfast’s Antrim Road.
The majority of these road accidents come about because of traffic and congestion, and while many are small bumps, others involve injuries to people. If you have been injured in road traffic accidents in Lisburn and the accident was not your fault, we urge you to consider making a claim for compensation. We help all types of road users, from those on public transport, to pedestrians, cyclists, car drivers and passengers and motorcyclists.
To make a claim for compensation using no-win, no-fee* is simple with Accident Advice Helpline. One phone call to our advisers is all it takes. Call today and ask for support, and let’s take action to get your traffic accident claim started.
Whiplash accidents in Lisburn
The nearby city of Belfast has two of the 10 most congested roads anywhere in Britain and Northern Ireland, according to a recent traffic study. The Lisburn Road southbound was the most congested road outside of London, and drivers spent on average 49 hours in gridlock over the year. It was busiest in the afternoon.
The UK was ranked the fourth most congested developed country in the world and the third in Europe, with drivers spending 32 hours per year on average stuck in congestion during peak hours, at an annual cost of £968 per driver.
But there can be another – largely unseen – cost to drivers. Traffic congestion is a source of huge frustration for drivers, and can lead to fraying tempers, high levels of stress and aggression. These factors in turn mean drivers are more likely to lose concentration or start behaving more erratically, and this ends up causing careless driving and results in accidents.
The kind of accidents we see from congested areas are often whiplash accidents, where people shunt into the car in front, or sideways into a car when trying to overtake or merge in traffic. Even at speeds of just five mph can cause the whipping effect to a head as it is thrust first one way and then another. Whiplash stretches the tendons and muscles in the neck and can be extremely painful.
If you’ve suffered whiplash injuries in Lisburn and you would like to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline can help. Our specialist solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with victims of whiplash, and will work hard to ensure you have the best chance of success. To make a claim, call us today.
