Road safety in Lincolnshire is important to everyone at Nigel Askew Solicitors. Many of us are parents of teenage road users and we constantly remind our families to take care on our notoriously dangerous roads. We also speak to countless new enquiries from Lincolnshire road users about serious accidents they have been involved in.
We genuinely care so were very sorry to read recent reports of 3 separate fatal road accidents across Lincolnshire, on the same day in April. The website LincolnshireLive reported the news that a 33 year-old man driving a BMW collided with a lorry on the A15 near Cranwell. Police were then called to the A17 at East Heckington following reports that an 81 year-old man had died following a collision with an agricultural HGV. The third fatal road accident of the day was following a cyclist colliding with a lorry in Market Deeping.
As we have covered in previous blog posts, Lincolnshire’s roads are considered to be some of the deadliest in the UK, with over 500 serious or fatal accidents taking place in 2018.
Coping after a road accident
The effects of a serious injury following an accident, and the devastation of the families involved in fatal road accidents, can often be overwhelming. We wrote last month about the options available to families who find themselves in these situations, including local support groups, treatment for PTSD and compensation claims.
