Road Safety Week, organised by UK road safety charity Brake, runs from 16 – 22 November. This year, the awareness event is focussing on how the speed of travel can affect other people. With speed contributing to one in five fatal road traffic accidents in the UK, and someone injured on a UK road every four minutes, the efforts of the team behind Road Safety Week are focussing on:
- What appropriate speed is
- What leads people to travel too fast
- What the solutions are to make sure people move at safe speeds.
“Through my work as a Personal Injury legal expert, I have seen first-hand the devastating impact that an increase in speed can have in the resultant injuries of a victim following a crash on the UK roads. Hatch Brenner Solicitors is fully supportive of Road Safety Week and the theme ‘No Need to Speed’. The firm has taken action on road safety by working with staff to highlight the importance of road safety and encourage staff to think about travelling to and from work in a safe manner.
“In one very memorable road traffic accident case study, I acted for a seven year old who was knocked over by a car and suffered a life changing brain injury. The case was complex from a medical perspective as the Claimant had a number of issues all requiring the input from separate experts. After a long fight, a multi-million pound award was approved in the High Court, being one of the biggest ever compensation awards of this kind at that time. The compensation importantly included guaranteeing the Claimant’s care costs for the rest of her life, met her accommodation needs and secured her future financially.”
