Have you been in a car crash injury in Yorkshire?
If you have suffered a car crash injury while driving in Yorkshire you may be entitled to compensation. The roads in Yorkshire such as the A61 and the A59 pass through some of the most rugged and beautiful landscapes in the whole of the UK. However it is the very nature of the terrain that contributes to a large number of accidents that take place on these roads.
More than a quarter of all the accidents that happen in Yorkshire each year occur on just two of its roads the A19 and the A59. The two roads have been witness to some terrible accidents in recent years and there have been a number of fatalities on each of them. A rise in the amount of traffic using the roads has contributed to the number of accidents while speeding motorists and driver error also caused a significant percentage of the accidents on these roads.
A plan is in place to reduce the number of accidents that happen each year on the roads of Aberdeenshire. The third Road Safety Plan was introduced by Yorkshire Council in 2010 and aims to reduce by 40% the number of people seriously injured or killed on the roads of Yorkshire and reduce by 50% the number of children injured each year.
If you have suffered a car crash injury while in Yorkshire and it was not your fault you could be able to claim a sizable sum in compensation. The amount that you could claim will depend on the nature of the injuries that you suffered and your first step in claiming compensation should be to talk to a solicitor about your case.
