West Yorkshire has some of the busiest road in the United Kingdom. In fact, in 2011 there were 7995 casualties as a result of car accidents on this road. This is only the tip of the iceberg – the statistics for the rest of the United Kingdom paint a much scarier picture, with over 180,000 injuries sustained from road traffic accidents in 2012.
So what can you do if you’ve had a road traffic accident or suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault? Most people don’t realise this immediately, but you are legally entitled to sue for damages in West Yorkshire, or wherever you are in the United Kingdom.
How many people sue for damages in West Yorkshire?
The figures for non-commercial and private compensation claims are more difficult to collect or estimate, but there are statistics available for claims made against councils in the county.
The figures for 2011 show that over £5 million in compensation was claimed from councils across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire – so people are claiming, but what for?
