Common Road Traffic Accidents

Everyday number of road traffic accidents takes place. There has been a tremendous increase in road traffic accidents since past few years. Now the question that arises here is what is the reason for this increase in road traffic accidents?

The first common road traffic accident took place around 100 years back. Since that time the number is just increasing and increasing. Road traffic accidents are very common today and the injuries caused by those involve minor whiplash or serious injuries. The road traffic accidents are not only caused by collisions between two cars or any other vehicles but also due to collisions with trees, buildings and sometimes even with other people on road.

Surveys reveal that every year around 1.2 million people in the whole world die due to serious injuries caused by road traffic accidents. For instance if you get involved in a common road traffic accidents then you must stay at the accident spot and think upon the emergency services that you may require like what to do if the road is blocked and so on ? To handle such situation you need the police help and after that call an ambulance.

Apart from all these considerations you should also try to ask other car drivers regarding the repairs or insurance claims so as to get back on the road without wasting much time. Moreover after a common road traffic accident you have to claim for the compensation. This compensation is only meant for the car or bus drivers, travellers and pedestrian who don’t have any fault in the accident.

One of the biggest reasons for road traffic accidents is carelessness and negligence.  Most of the people go to offices in cars or motorbikes in a hurry. In order to reach their workplace on time they do road traffic accidents.

Government is trying to make more advanced safety techniques to prevent car accidents. They have also put a check on immature and inexperienced car or motorbike drivers as these are the ones who are more involved in road traffic accidents. Some government proposals include introduction of a curfew for young drivers, restrictions on driving with alcohol intake and stopping them from late night driving.

Therefore a road traffic accident is a very scary experience. Try to avoid it as far as possible or you will have to experience serious and painful injuries with lots of other problems.  Remember that prevention is better than cure.

Food Poisoning
Mr W was involved in a food poisoning incident at a Dinner Dance. Cooks obtained an admission of liability swiftly from the hosts. Mr W’s symptoms did not settle, he required surgery and Cooks referred him to a Gastrointestinal Consultant to provide a final diagnosis. On receipt of this Mr W agreed an out of Court settlement of £20,000.00
"At first the Doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me, but Cooks never gave up and in the end I received a correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment and a cheque for far more than I had expected."
