Norfolk Road Injury Statistics Revealed
Information obtained by the Eastern Daily Press website has revealed worrying road injury statistics in the county of Norfolk.
The data, which was gained under the Freedom of Information Act, showed that there had been three deaths in Norfolk in February alone. Two of the fatal road accidents occurred on 22nd February when two teenage pedestrians were killed in two separate incidents. The third accident involved a man who was killed the day after following a fatal road crash.
Road Accident Blackspots
The information pinpoints fatal road accident locations from 2002- 2013 and illustrates an overall UK decrease of fatal collisions. The places highlighted in the report show the most road accident fatalities were Norwich with 23 accidents , Yarmouth with 17 accidents and King’s Lynn which had 14 accidents in the 11 year period.
Norwich City Council for environment, development and transport’s cabinet member, Mike Stonard, said that the figures were unsurprising. He added: “You’re talking about an urban area where there’s more road traffic and more interchange between pedestrians and cyclists, there’s greater density of population, more road miles being travelled.”
Police Target Well-Known Accident Zones
On behalf of Norfolk and Suffolk Police, Chief Inspector Spinks, said that there was more vehicle movement in urban areas and that rural areas saw more high speed collisions, on average. He added that police targeted the areas where there had been a history of road accidents. He said: “Over the last 10 years the trend has shown a steady decline in the number of killed and serious injury collisions and we continue to work with our partners in local authorities and other emergency services to ensure this trend is maintained.”
He cited the four fatal causes of accidents as not wearing a seatbelt, driving at high speeds, drinking and driving and using a mobile phone while driving. He also said that continuous education is provided by the police as well as enforcement of road safety rules.

Hospital Processes Reviewed After Failings
A review conducted by West Hertfordshire NHS Trust has found that three cancer patient’s care was compromised after they were not given follow up appointments at Watford General Hospital. Two of those patients have since died.
In total, there were 810 patients reviewed out of that number 121 are still being reviews and 686 have been informed there are no clinical concerns for them. The results show a breach in NHS rules and two managers have been suspended.
A spokeswoman for the trust said that in one case there was a delay because processes were not followed correctly but that the cancer was still found at the earliest stage and that an apology has been made to the family. She said: “We have also met the family of a patient who has since died. Our clinical view is that a delay in seeing the patient may have contributed to their death, but it is not certain.”
New Procedures Now In Place
The trust stated that a number of processes had since been put into place following the review, including weekly meetings to discuss all referrals and appointments, the retraining of staff and a new IT appointment tracker system.
Chief Executive of the Trust, Samantha Jones, said that she wants to apologise to every patient and relative who had been affected. She added that the emergence of the information came as a result of the new management’s review system and that the cases dated back a number of years. She also said that all the new changes currently being implemented will be communicated publicly.

Cycle Safety Controversy Over EU Proposals
Following the news that Britain has rejected new European Union proposals on cycle safety, London Mayor, Boris Johnson has expressed his concern.
The suggestions posed by the EU are to do with the safer design of lorries following research that HGVs and lorry drivers have a blind spot around their vehicles which can often present a road accident risk for cyclists. However, members of the European parliament have been advised by the UK to reject the new EU rules, which propose that lorries are designed with larger windows to create more visibility and safety.
Boris Johnson wants the existing rules on HGV vehicles to be much stricter in order to stop road accidents involving cyclists and HGV drivers. Fellow supporter of the new proposals, Chris Boardman, concurred with the London mayor and remarked that HGVs are involved in over half fatal cycling accidents in London.
Johnson Says Government Can Change Things
Mr Johnson said that the government has an opportunity to change things, adding: “If these amendments, supported by dozens of cities across Europe, can succeed, we can save literally hundreds of lives across the EU in years to come. I am deeply concerned at the position of the British Government and urge them to embrace this vital issue.”
Last year the government said that any modifications to cabs that become mandatory should be supported by an impact assessment and that they were not aware of one at that time.
Claiming Compensation For A Road Accident
Cycling accidents can be caused by any number of factors but it is well-known that in the city of London, many, often serious cycling accidents on the roads, are caused by HGVs. If you have had any kind of cycling accident and the blame can be proven to be a third party then you could have a valid compensation claim.
Injuries incurred in a cycling accident can be serious with victims often encountering brain injuries, broken bones and spinal damage. The impact of these injuries can leave you in a vulnerable position, i.e. being unable to work or having to pay for medical expenses.
Personal injury claims will take into consideration any loss of earnings, pain and suffering or payment for medical aides like home adaptation or physiotherapy.

Millions In Compensation For Oxford Family
The family of a young girl who suffered a severe brain injury has been awarded £5m in compensation from the high court.
The High Court made the award after hearing details about the brain damage caused to a baby girl when the mother was admitted to one hospital and then transferred to another in 2003. It was deemed by the court that both hospitals had failed in providing appropriate care for the baby.
‘Catastrophic’ Brain Damage
The mother had been admitted first of all to John Radcliffe Hospital in 2003 where it was identified that her baby had a bleed on the brain. Because there were no specialist beds available in Oxford, she was transferred to Great Western Hospital a week later and staff were told of the likelihood that the baby would be anaemic.
Despite receiving the advice, the medical staff at Great Western did not give a blood transfusion to the baby half an hour after she was born. Legal representatives of the family said that nothing was done to respond to the anaemia appropriately.
The baby collapsed after being born and suffered ‘catastrophic’ brain damage. Both Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust were found liable for the girl’s injuries and both admitted to breaches in care.
It was reported that the life expectancy of the young girl, who is now 10 years old, was considerably lower than it would have been and that she would require 24 hour and specialist accommodation. Both of the trusts said that they hoped the compensation settlement would assist and apologised to the family.
Claiming compensation For Medical Negligence
If you or a family member has suffered because of medical negligence then you may be able to make a personal injury claim. Medical negligence claims require the assistance of a specialised solicitor and sometimes these cases can be more complex than others. If third party blame can be established then your claim is more likely to be valid and in addition, there are strict time limits in place for making compensation claims.
