According to government statistics there were over 40,000 road traffic accidents in the last three months of 2011. If we assume that each of these accidents involved two cars and that on average there would have been two people in each vehicle that means that around 160,000 people were directly affected and multiplying this by four we are looking at potentially 640,000 people over the course year involved in a road traffic accident.
You yourself may have been one of the unlucky 160,000 or if not the chances are that you know someone who was involved.
Thankfully only a relatively small number of the road traffic accidents in 2011 resulted in fatal injuries but of course that is cold comfort to those who did tragically lose friends or loved ones. The point is that road traffic accidents, or RTA’s as they are sometimes abbreviated to, are all too common place in the UK and whilst vehicles can be repaired or replaced, it’s not always as easy to patch up those individuals involved both physically and in some cases psychologically.
We can get you the compensation you deserve
Mercury Legal Online is here to help. Obtaining financial compensation for your road traffic accident is important so that you are not left struggling if you need to take time off from work and you are properly compensated for your pain and discomfort but that isn’t where our job ends. Our solicitors can make sure that you receive a hire car if you need one and that all of your vehicle repairs are taken care of so you don’t have to worry about such matters and you can concentrate instead on getting better. If you need medical treatment, ranging from physiotherapy, counselling, right the way through to private operations our personal injury experts can help and advise you every step of the way.
The figures above would certainly indicate that at some point you or someone you know will need legal help following an RTA. Hopefully you’ll be one of the lucky ones who beats the statistics but if not Mercury Legal Online is ready and waiting to help.
