Child Safety Week 7-13 June – Share because you care

This week is Child Safety Week. This is an annual community education campaign run by The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT)

The Campaign aims to educate people on dangers especially those that pose a severe risk to children.  The Theme for this year is “Share because you care”.

With so many social media sites there are numerous opportunities to share safety information and you can connect with CAPT on Facebook to see and share animations and illustrations with important safety messages.

One of the main concerns for parents is the danger posed to our children whilst out and about, Whether this is walking or cycling or even travelling safely in a car.  The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers have recently highlighted a Yougov survey which revealed almost two thirds of parents do not think their children have a good understanding of the dangers or concentrate near roads.

With more and more schools encouraging parents and children to ditch the car and walk or cycle to school it is as important as ever to educate our children and also road users on the Highway code and the Green Cross Code. According to CAPT children involved in road traffic accidents peak at around Age 12 when children start to be more independent and start to make journeys without parents.  More than half of serious accidents involving children happen between 3pm and 7pm.

The CAPT website has a host of resources to help with ideas of how to educate children on road safety and also acts as timely reminders for parents of the Highway Code.

Our Personal Injury Team are supporting the campaign and sharing the information and resources with all staff and the wider community.

Despite our best intentions accidents do still happen and our team are very experienced in advising victims of road traffic accidents and helping them access treatment to aid their recovery and compensation for their injuries.

If you or a member of your family have been injured you can contact the team on 01473 211121 or email enquiries@gotelee.co.uk.
