Being involved in an accident or a dangerous situation on the road can be extremely frightening, even more so when you have become a victim through no fault of your own.
You may feel anxious about venturing out or you may be struggling to come to terms with an injury or injuries to someone who was with you at the time of the incident.
If you have been frightened, hurt, injured or have lost someone as a result of driving offences we are here to help you. We provide emotional support, guidance and practical help to make sure you can move forward.
Whether the incident happened recently or in the past, you can talk to us over the phone, via email or in person. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t reported the crime to the police but if you would like to, we can help with that, too.
All of our services are free and confidential. Please get in touch.
The main causes of collisions and injuries according to Lancashire Constabulary are:
- Drink/drug driving
- Mobile phone use
- Not wearing a seatbelt
These are themed the ‘Fatal Four’ and you will be much safer on the roads if you make sure to avoid them. If you see others driving dangerously keep your distance and report any incidents you witness to the police to keep yourself and other road users safe.
