Transport Scotland statistics show that 168 people died in road accidents in Scotland in 2019, while 2,001 were seriously injured and over 5,425 suffered minor injuries.

As dreadful as these accident figures are, they are much better than they used to be. In 1980, for example, 29,286 people were killed or injured on Scotland’s roads.

So what has made the difference? Since 1980 there have been a growing number of road safety campaigns, advances in car safety technology, improved road design and a general increase in road safety awareness among the general population. These have all contributed to the fall in the number of casualties.

But these changes and campaigns have been implemented in different ways and times across the country, and this means that the number and type of car accidents in Scotland varies as you move from one region to another.

It is well known that most car accidents take place at low speed, resulting in minor injuries such as whiplash. More serious or fatal injuries are most likely to occur when the car is travelling at speed. Thankfully these are much less common.

In either case, if you have been injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and other losses.
