Why might you want to take a look at UK accident statistics? Well, they will give you an overview of accidents that take place in the UK. You’ll learn that many accidents take place in the home. It will also give you the startling information about the sheer amount of road traffic accidents that take place in the UK each year.
UK accident statistics
There are three main sources of information for UK accident statistics:
- Road accidents and safety statistics. The government collates and publishes all literature related to road accidents and safety statistics online.
- Workplace injury statistics are available from the Labour Force Survey.
- ROSPA publishes annual information on injury-related hospital attendances.
However, while all three are very useful sources of information, what UK accident statistics don’t tell you is what happens to the people involved in those accident afterwards. What exactly happened? How badly were they hurt? How long did they receive medical treatment for? What was the short-term and long-term impact on their quality of life?
There’s no denying that being involved in an accident can be incredibly traumatic. Of course you count yourself lucky that it was not a fatal accident, but living with the ongoing effects can be hard. In some cases, individuals who have had an accident decide to check to see if they might be eligible for personal injury compensation.
This is where Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) can step in.
Operating across the UK, with over a decade in business and coming highly recommended by media personality and consumer champion Esther Rantzen, AAH offers highly trained and customer focused specialist advisers along with a team of lawyers who are experts specifically in the area of personal injury law.
If you have had an accident that is not your fault, which happened within the last three years and resulted in medical attention then it may be that you are eligible for compensation. AAH have claimed compensation for many individuals in similar circumstances and you could be counted among them, becoming one of our success statistics instead.
So if you’ve ended up as one of the UK accident statistics through no fault of your own, give AAH a call on 0800 180 4123 and find out what we could do for you.
