The national news is always full of stories where people have been involved in accidents or have been a victim of a crime. There is a high chance that when watching this or reading about it you would not pay too much attention to it because it hasn’t happened to you. Harsh as it sounds, it is very true. Most people in the UK are guilty of thinking something featured in the news will never happen to them. North east Lincolnshire law firms confirm this is often the case. Some statistics which have come to light may change your way of thinking.

Car Statistics

Having a seatbelt on is one of the most natural procedures in a car after switching on the engine. However it seems this is not necessarily the case. In 2014 a record 10 % of back seat occupants including children were not wearing a seatbelt, in addition to 4% in the passenger seat. Without even considering the driver in the vehicle possibly 3 out 4 people in a moving vehicle are not safe.

Car accidents and consequential fatalities are a very common incident on UK roads and highways. North east Lincolnshire law firms also share that 1.4 % of drivers still use mobile phones whilst driving, further endangering all occupants in the moving vehicle.

Road Traffic Accidents

A common occurrence of accidents on the road is unfortunately other drivers. North east Lincolnshire law firms clarify that in the months up to June 2014 a staggering 24,580 people were either seriously injured or killed in an RTA. In comparison to the previous year, 2013, this statistic rose by 4%. Even more shocking is that the increase in drivers on the road only increased by 1.7 %. Meaning that there are a lot more careless drivers on the road.

In addition to these statistics the total amount of people who were injured over the spectrum was 193,290 in the UK alone. On reflection of the small increase of drivers these statistics show that the danger is very real.

With just these 2 categories it is very easy to see that at some point everyone will need the help of Accident Advice Helpline and any other legal representation and guidance.
