Statistics on car accidents

0

Happily, Great Britain enjoys some of the safest roads to be found anywhere in the world. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t much still left to be done.

Official figures suggest that the numbers of those killed or seriously injured on the UK’s roads fell by 6% in the year to September 2013, compared with the year before.

In the same time period, the number of road casualties of all levels of seriousness was just over 184,000, a decrease of 7% than the previous 12 months.

This is despite the fact that statistics on car accidents show that levels of motor vehicle traffic went up by 1.1% compared to the previous 12 months, while the casualty rate for every billion vehicle miles went down by 7% for the same period.

Between July and September 2013, serious and slightly hurt casualties fell by 3% and 4% respectively, giving an overall reduction in casualties of some 3%.

This is the latest quarter for which figures are currently available.

What these figures show is that, while the statistics on car accidents in the UK show an encouraging downwards trend, Britain’s roads are still far from 100% safe at all times, and there can be no room for complacency.

If you become part of the statistics on car accidents

So, unfortunately, wherever you live in the UK, at some point you could become part of the road traffic accident statistics. Of course, road accidents can have devastating and life-changing consequences.

However, if you were involved in an accident on a road, through no fault of you own, and it happened within the last three years, you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. This could help with things like recovering earnings which have been lost through missed work, physiotherapy for whiplash injuries or travelling to medical appointments.

  • We only charge a fee if your claim is successful
