Personal injury lawyer in Maidenhead and road traffic accidents
Car crashes account for the majority of road traffic accidents on UK roads, and as the roads get busier the number of accidents is increasing. In the year to March 2013, 188,890 accidents that involved someone being injured were reported, and among those, at least 5 people a day lost their lives. Many of those injured would have been the victims of someone else’s mistake or negligence, and they would be able to make a personal injury claim, using a personal injury lawyer in Maidenhead.
The different types of injuries
There is a very long list of injuries that could happen in road traffic accidents, but the ones we come across the most are:
- Cuts and bruise
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Back or spinal injuries
- Facial injuries
You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, if you are injured in any way in any accident that was not your fault.
Most road traffic accidents are between two or more cars, but can include any other sort of vehicle as well from cycles and motorbikes to heavy goods vehicles. All of them can have devastating effects and produce horrific injuries, if the victims survive.
