Brake releases updated edition of online support guide for injured road crash victims

The road safety charity’s original guide was originally produced in 2003, for people whose injuries following a road crash make a significant impact on their daily life and their family.

The updated version has been produced with thanks to sponsorship from Fentons Solicitors, part of Slater & Gordon, and has been simplified and streamlined to make it more accessible for people going through such a distressing and confusing time. Topics covered in the guide include:

  • Hospital treatment, rehabilitation and disabilities
  • Claiming compensation
  • The crash and criminal prosecutions
  • Coping with emotions and feelings
  • Useful organisations.

The guide is available online, and is being signposted via police forces across the UK and the Brake helpline, which offers over-the-phone explanation of information in the guide alongside a range of other professionally delivered support for seriously injured and bereaved road crash victims.
