There Are Around 150,000 Road Injury Accident Reports A Year

You can be the best driver on the planet, but that does not help a whole lot if someone else is not paying enough attention and for example just hits your car from behind.

When that happens, the first smart thing to do is to notify the Police and if there are people injured, Emergency Medical Service is also needed.

If you get injured, then it can have a lot of impact on your life from a bad health to not being able to work or take care of your family. If you were not responsible for the accident then you should get a compensation.

For that there is InjuryLawyers4U website, that offers a great service with no middle man. If however you were responsible for an accident, you can seek the help of a driver defence service.

When it comes to road accidents and numbers, the statistics are not pretty.

According to Department of Transportation there were 150,810 road injury accidents with the year ending March 2012.

Out of these road accidents, 1,870 people were killed and 25,210 were seriously injured. Overall during that period there were total of 202,980 reported road casualties, including slight, serious injuries and fatalities. Looking at these numbers it is obvious that an average road injury has more than one person who has been injured.

Last week, The Telegraph wrote that the number of cyclists who were killed or badly hurt reached 6,020 within the same period we mentioned above, a rise of 11 per cent. All we can do is be more cautious to what happens around us whether we are driving a car, riding a bicycle or just walking near traffic.

We all want to believe that accidents are happening somewhere far from us, but that’s not the reality. So the next time you are in a car accident, stay calm and take action so that you and people around you get the kind of help they need as fast as possible.

Safe driving to all!
