People launch many personal injury claims in Perth and Kinross, having suffered a serious injury in a road traffic accident (RTA), and many of these people turn to Accident Advice Helpline for help with processing their claims for financial compensation.
Seatbelts save lives
Many RTA fatalities are sustained by drivers who collide with their own steering wheels on impact, causing mortal chest injury. It may surprise you to know that over 30% of young drivers killed in RTA’s die as a result of not wearing their seatbelts. But it’s not just drivers who die; passengers and even passers-by are at risk too.
Fatal passenger injury in Edinburgh
An elderly female passenger, who was involved in an RTA on the A85 Perth to Crianlarich road recently, died of her injuries in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee. The lady in question was the front seat passenger in a blue Skoda Fabia that was involved in a collision with a white Vauxhall Astra van. The actual cause of death is not yet known, but as the elderly woman was 81 years of age, her advancing years could have had an effect.
Age makes accident victims more vulnerable victims
Age does make people susceptible to more serious injury. Osteoporosis for example, (the brittle bone disease), can turn a relatively innocent looking slip, trip or fall accident into a bone breaker quite easily. However, that shouldn’t have any effect on the amount of compensation awarded for any such injury.
How much compensation are you due?
To find out how much compensation you could expect to be awarded for any type of injury, whatever its nature and severity, you can visit the Accident Advice Helpline website and use our HOW MUCH compensation calculator. All you have to do is to supply the answers to 4 questions regarding your injury, (by selecting the appropriate answers from the drop down boxes provided), and you’ll be given an estimate within just 30 seconds.

Early exponents of no win no fee
AAH was one of the first exponents of the no win, no fee claim service. We introduced it shortly after free legal aid was withdrawn back in the year 2000. Since then we’ve helped thousands of people to claim compensation for injuries they’ve received through no fault of their own, and we are now one of the nation’s favourite injury claim specialists; in fact, last year we secured over £30 million worth of compensation for our clients.
