Treharris road traffic accidents

0

Unfortunately, some of the Treharris road traffic accidents result in injuries to children. Across the whole of the UK, the total number of children who are killed or seriously injured every year is in the region of 2,500. Despite road safety being taught in schools, and the various advertising campaigns on television, the message does not get through to all. It is therefore incumbent on drivers to stick to speed limits, be aware, and be extra vigilant when children are around.

Children under the age of eight have difficulty judging speed

The fact of the matter is that young children have difficulty judging the speed at which cars travel, and in judging the distances in terms of how far away cars are in relation to the speed they’re going, until they are at least eight years old. The risk of course continues beyond the age of eight, with most child victims being seriously injured or killed around the age of 12, which is when many start travelling to and from school unaccompanied.

Choosing child seats with care

It’s not just children walking to and from school who are at risk, either. Not all child car seats fit all models of car as well as they might, which means that in some instances some child seats may not be as safe as they could be. The best thing is not to leave anything to chance, and buy the right car seat that has been specifically designed for your model of car. Your car dealer will be able to help you in this matter. You can also take advice from “Which?” magazine.

Child cyclists are also seriously at risk

Children who ride bicycles on busy roads are also seriously at risk. Almost one quarter of all cyclists who are killed or seriously injured are children. It tends to be older children who are more at risk, children within the age bracket 10 to 15 year olds being at most danger.

A child must be blameless in order to claim compensation for injuries sustained in Treharris road traffic accidents

Before you can consider launching a claim for financial compensation with regard to Treharris road traffic accidents in which your child has been injured, you must first ascertain that the accident was not your child’s fault. If it was, you will not be in a position to sue for compensation. The blame for any accident, whether it’s to a child or an adult, must always lay firmly with someone other than the injury victim.
