Road traffic accidents and collisions – as bad as we think?
Research suggests that the UK is one of the safest countries in Europe for road safety. In 2012, there were 195,723 road traffic accidents or collisions according the statistics gather from police forces across the UK.
The vast majority of these were minor, with over 27,000 falling into the serious category and under 2,000 involving fatalities.
But, Accident Advice Helpline do not differentiate between slight, severe and fatal as they know that any collision or accident in which people were hurt can have an enormous impact in people’s lives. If you wish to make road accident claims in Trafford Park contact us today.
Long or short term effects?
Modern cars are far better equipped to deal with collisions, which considering the speed at which we now travel, this is a good thing! However, our solicitors will tell you, that even the smallest of ‘bumps’ between two vehicles can cause personal injuries that can be difficult to live with.
Spinal and neck injuries are common in car accidents when one vehicle is rear-ended by another. This motion of being pushed forward quickly and sharply, causes the neck to snap forward and back. This can lead to soft tissue damage, as well as skeletal issues.
Many people find that their backs are damaged in this way, even though there may not have been much speed involved in the collision.
For those in high-speed impacts, however, the results can be devastating. As medical knowledge increases as to how the human body can be hurt in such instances, the amount of care now taken by the emergency services is phenomenal.
In such accidents, people often have to be cut from vehicles and, in some instances, flown to nearby hospitals so that they have the best chance of survival.
No matter how large or small your accident, our solicitors may be able to help you claim financial justice through your road accident claims in Trafford Park.
