Everyone knows there are accidents on the road every day in the UK; this can be caused by poor driving or perhaps a pedestrian being careless. However you might be surprised at how often they occur and in turn how many injuries are suffered as a result.
For example, between 2012 – 2013 there were over 800,000 claims made for personal injury following a road traffic accident, which amounts to a little more than 1,000 every single day! The most common causes of accidents on the road are inexperience and speeding, along with hazardous weather the roads can be extremely dangerous.
The statistics above were put together by Cute Injury and it goes to highlight how common accidents on the road truly are.
