Stoke on Trent road traffic accidents are not unusual, they happen quite often. In all there are over 200,000 reported road accidents in the UK every year, so it is not just Stoke on Trent road traffic accidents that occur. It is estimated that there could be nearer 600,000 each year, but many of them are minor bumps with no injuries, so not reported anywhere.
The number of serious injuries and deaths on our roads has reduced slightly, but still too many people suffer injuries they did not cause in road traffic accidents that were not their fault.
The consequences of Stoke on Trent road traffic accidents
One of the most common injuries from Stoke on Trent road traffic accidents is whiplash. This is because it so easily sustained. It just takes a severe jolt to your head to damage the muscles and tendons in your neck. and that is what often happens when brakes are slammed are or two cars collide.
But there are injuries that can be much more severe than this. Victims lose limbs, have their sight damaged and maybe one of the worst injuries of all, some suffer brain damage. This type of injury can mean that the victim is no longer able to care for themselves and may well be in a vegetative state for the rest of their life.
When you consider that this could be because of the actions of someone else, the law is being just and fair when it says the victim should be compensated.
