Emergency Services

Even with all the rules and regulations and safety precautions being implemented, the number of car accidents continues to rise. Although various public awareness campaigns have been organised for the purpose of avoiding road accidents, they still happen too frequently. Emergency services in case of accidents include ambulance, oxygen supply, blood bank facility and hospitals. It is a service that has to be administered in case of any road accidents without delay. Most of the people tend to panic during emergency, but proper emergency service given to the person at right time can make a huge difference in the condition of the injured person. In severe cases, these services are necessary for saving life of a person. Proper emergency services provided to the injured person significantly minimises the risk of minor injuries from being poorer.

As humans, we are subjected to various health issues including accidents which may completely damage our social as well as personal life. The main role of such emergency services is to provide first aid to the injured person, preserve his or her life and prevent any further injury and promote his or her recovery. Car accidents may include injuries like knee-cap injuries, spinal-cord injuries, shock-related injuries and broken bones. Head injuries may even sometimes lead to the person’s death, while injuries like knee injuries may never heal. The main reasons for most of the accidents include reckless driving, driving while talking on mobile phones, driving while drunk or inattentive driving. Some drivers drive without concentration on the road, which can be very dangerous while on the highways or on residential streets. Another cause of accidents may also include improper or no signalling to other drivers on the road, resulting in side collisions and accidents. It is important to remember that a minor mistake on the road may result in serious damages to oneself, as well as to other people on the road. Drivers must also give considerable consideration to the weather conditions, as it can result in slippery surface of the road or great breezes of crosswinds. Unforeseen hazards can be created by weather, causing tremendous hazards to human life.

It is advisable to keep all the emergency numbers in your wallet, as well as in your mobile phone. When it comes to the need of the emergency help, it must be available to you always as an early action can lead to the injurer’s life and death. A majority of people who had survived accidents were the ones who were attended quickly by emergency services personnel.

Slip in Public House
Mrs C whilst walking towards the bar area slipped on the wet floor of a public house whilst walking towards the bar area. She fell awkwardly causing a complex fracture of her right wrist. The insurers denied liability alleging the floor was dry and that Mrs C was drunk and jumping on the dancefloor. Cooks obtained evidence refuting this and issued the claim at Court. Settlement was reached just prior to the trial when Mrs C was awarded £20,000.00 she said:
"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
Mrs C from Middlesbrough
