It is a staggering statistic that glosses over the true impact of being involved in a road traffic accident: the pain and suffering endured by each victim, and the worry and anguish felt by friends and family. 

The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident injury claim extends far beyond mere statistics, encompassing physical, emotional, and financial repercussions. If you have been injured in a road accident that was not your fault, you may find yourself grappling with medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing rehabilitation expenses. However, amidst these challenges, there is a beacon of hope: the opportunity to seek rightful compensation for your suffering and losses. 

A motor vehicle accident injury claim is not just about obtaining financial reparation; it's about reclaiming a sense of justice and stability in the wake of adversity. Whether you've endured whiplash from a rear-end collision or faced life-altering injuries due to a high-speed crash, exploring your legal options can pave the way towards healing and recovery.

Motorbike accidents

When it comes to the numbers of motorbike riders, and their pillion passengers, killed or injured annually on Britain's roads the statistics are truly shocking. Motorcycles make up only 1% of all road traffic, but account for 19% of all road user fatalities..

Speed is often a factor in motorcycle accidents, but, in many cases, drivers' failure to look properly will lead to incidents at junctions. According to THINK!30 motorcyclists are injured or killed at junctions every day in the UK.

Tram accidents

Edinburgh's tram network is, for many, a boon to city travel. But, for some, it has meant pain and suffering, loss of income and a need for rehabilitation following a tram accident.

Tram-related accidents can involve collisions, derailments and even injury to pedestrians and cyclists who have to contend with the tracks which run throughout the city.

Common factors in road accidents

Parts of Scotland regularly see the highest rates of fatal and serious injuries recorded in road accidents in the UK, and this is something which the government is constantly seeking to address, but this is no comfort to those people whose lives are altered forever when they suffer a car accident in Scotland.

And while driving in certain parts of Scotland may be inherently more dangerous than in other parts of Britain, Scotland's roads also share similar common factors with the rest of the UK. For instance, drivers who use excessive speed and those who choose to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Accidents to pedestrians

Over the ten year period from 2004 to 2021, the number of pedestrians killed or seriously injured on UK roads fell from 10,989 to 5,393 (with the lowest recorded figure being in 2013 at 5,396). However, even at the lowest rate, this works out at 14.78 pedestrians either dying or suffering serious personal injuries every day on our streets. This is obviously unacceptable.
