Even some low speed road accidents can still leave victims with devastating injuries, warn personal injury solicitors Coles Miller.

Driving at low speed is vital in reducing the probability of road accidents and their impact when they do occur. Speed Down Saves Lives is the theme of Road Safety Week (20-26 November 2017).

But keeping to the 30mph speed limit in built up areas is just the start, says Coles Miller Partner Adrian Cormack, head of the law firm’s Personal Injury Department.

“Many of the accidents we see across the UK involve motorcyclists, cyclists or pedestrians – and they always come off worst in a crash,” said Mr Cormack.

“Speed is a critical factor but so are driver concentration levels. We urge motorists to take an extra few seconds to ensure it’s safe to pull out at junctions.

“It’s so important, especially when turning right and particularly at night or in poor weather.

“Please…if you could see what we see, the long term and often permanent injuries that victims suffer, you’d take the time to concentrate harder behind the wheel and not rush,” he added.
