Today is Injury Prevention Day and to mark this year’s event APIL are asking people to ‘Do the #HeadRestTest’. The focus on how to prevent needless injuries this year is on ensuring that vehicle head restraints are properly fitted and adjusted.
The UK has 50% more traffic on the roads than the European average and naturally this leads to a high incidence of road traffic accidents. With heavily congested roads the UK sees a very high incidence of low speed collisions. If head restraints are properly positioned then this could help to prevent any neck or back injuries from these collisions.
Despite taking preventative measures you may still suffer an injury as a result of a road traffic accident. If you have suffered an accident as a result of someone else’s mistake and would like to discuss the possibility of making a claim, call one of our Personal Injury specialists on 020 7379 7277.
