In her latest blog, specialist personal injury solicitor Claire Sagala from our Swindon team explains why she is supporting Road Safety Week 2021 and why teaching children about road safety is so important.

As a specialist personal injury solicitor, I have acted for many families of children, who through no fault of their own, have been injured when crossing a road.
The statistics are frightening. According to Brake, more than six children are killed or seriously injured on UK roads every day.
Children are our most vulnerable road users, and anything we can do as a society to help educate them and raise their awareness of the dangers associated with crossing the road should be encouraged.
I have asked my two children, aged four and eight years to enter the Brain Injury Group’s Road Safety Superhero Competition. It is a wonderful way to encourage them to think about road safety at the same time as educating them about what Mummy does in the office all day!
The competition will close this week on 17 November, so it is not too late if you have children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews or if you work with children that would like to get involved.
To enter, you can send a photograph of their artwork or creation, along with details of their superheroes’ name and superpower to Julie.email@example.com with the child’s first name and age.
Details of the winners will be published on Friday 19 November, along with images of all the entries and prizes will be given to the best entries.
To find out more details about the competition, plus lots of resources, visit BIG’s website.
