Whether you are injured in a road accident in Argyll, a slip, trip and fall accident in Cornwall, an accident at work in London, or any other type of accident anywhere else in the country, if the accident was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
In total, an average of over 3 million accidents happen every year in Great Britain, and road traffic accidents, such as a road accident in Argyll, are second only to slips, trips and fall accidents which are the most common of all.
Since 1951, the Department for Transport has compiled annual figures, but these are only for reported accidents, and they believe the true figures could be as much as three times as high. The latest figures available show that the number of serious injuries and deaths on our roads have reduced slightly, but that is no consolation if you are one of the innocent victims injured in a road accident in Argyll, that was not your own fault.
These reductions are good news for road users, but if you are a cyclist or use buses and coaches, the news is not so good as they are the only two areas where deaths increased.
These decreases have been achieved with practically the same level of traffic on our roads, which has remained pretty much the same for several years.
