KNOCKED DOWN. A STUDY OF THE PERSONAL AND FAMILY CONSEQUENCES OF ROAD ACCIDENTS INVOLVING PEDESTRIANS AND PEDAL CYCLISTS

Each year some 6000 people are killed in road accidents throughout Great Britain and a further 80000 seriously injured. Forty per cent of the dead and 29 per cent of those seriously injured are pedestrians and pedal cyclists. This report investigates the extent of the injuries sustained and need for hospital treatment, the effects on jobs or schooling and disruption in the lives of the victims and their families, the financial costs incurred by the accident, demand for compensation and adequacy of any compensation received.
