Road traffic accidents

Personal Injury specialist Charlotte Gurney comments:  “242 accidents in just 10 locations sounds like a lot but, to me, the figures aren’t all that surprising as we constantly act for local drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians who have been injured in road traffic collisions on these roads and junctions, as well as throughout other areas of Leicester and Leicestershire.”
