This month is National Road Victim Month, and a chance to reflect on the devastating impact of road crashes on families all over the UK.

Our team of specialist Road Traffic Accident Solicitors are only too aware that those who are tragically killed aren’t the only victims of road crashes. I act for a number of clients who have been seriously injured and also for bereaved families who have lost a loved one in road crashes.

Nothing can prepare people for these tragic crashes and the devastating impact they have, so our roads must be kept free of dangerous drivers for everybody’s safety and the preservation of life.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a road crash, contact our Road Traffic Accident Solicitors for a free claims assessment and legal advice. We can discuss your situation with you and let you know if you have a good chance of success. If you have a claim, we may be able to manage your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis - ask us for details.

Call us on 08002605010 or request a callback and we will help you.

How Simpson Millar Helps Road Crash Victims

Dealing with the impact and the aftermath of a car crash or any kind of road crash is distressing for everyone involved, and we understand this. So if we take on your case, we want you to concentrate on your recovery - both physical and emotional - while we deal with the claim itself.

We want people injured in road crashes and their loved ones to have access to the best possible care and support, and the compensation you could receive can help you get that.

This could include psychological support, such as trauma and bereavement counselling, as the emotional impact of a sudden loss or serious injury can be overwhelming. With the right care and support in place, you could be helped to process your feelings and learn to live with what’s happened.

Any road crash can also have a devastating financial impact on a family, and that too can cause feelings of stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD. For example, you may have relied on the income of a person who’s been seriously injured, and now be worrying about how to make ends meet. Or maybe you suddenly have to cover expensive funeral costs following a fatal road crash.

Again, our Road Accident Solicitors will look at your needs. We want to get you into a position where you don’t need to worry about the financial, physical or psychological impact of what’s happened.

If necessary, we may appoint a case manager to help you arrange medical appointments, which should again make managing your recovery slightly easier.

Of course, no amount of compensation can undo what’s happened. But with our help, learning to live with the aftermath of a road crash can be made a little easier.

As Road Peace, the charity behind National Road Victim Month, points out that crashes “are not inevitable”. But it’s easy to not recognise the true impact of the problem from statistics alone.

So it’s vital that the human cost of road crashes is put under the spotlight, and that we remember everybody who has been seriously injured or killed on the UK’s roads, often through no fault of their own.
