Recently, a terrible accident occurred in Sydney at noon. A car collided with a trailer and one person died in this accident.

The deceased was reported to be a man in his 40s. It was reported by the authorities that the condition of the 10-year-old boy, who was taken to the hospital, was critical.

More than 200 people die in traffic accidents in NSW each year.

According to the report published by the NSW Centre for Road Safety, it was stated that 262 people died in fatal accidents in 2021 alone. Looking at Australia in general, about 1,200 people die in traffic every year!

Considering that motorcycle drivers are also included, it is seen that the majority of those who lost their lives in accidents were drivers. Later, pedestrians and then passengers follow this rate of those who lost their lives in a fatal accident. It was also reported that the majority of those who lost their lives were male.

In the table below, you can see the age distribution of people who lost their lives in traffic accidents in 2021, NSW: (The number of those whose ages cannot be determined have been omitted from the table)

AGE GROUP NUMBER OF FATALITIES
0-4 2
5-16 15
17-20 24
21-25 25
26-29 18
30-39 26
40-49 43
50-59 30
60-69 37
70+ 42

When the ages of those who lost their lives in traffic accidents are examined, it is seen that the majority of those who lost their lives are between the ages of 30-59.

Major causes of accidents in NSW, Australia

When the accidents that occurred in Australia were examined, it was observed that the accidents were mostly caused by “fatigued driving, speeding, drunk driving, distraction and not using a seat belt”.

  • Fatigued driving: It is very dangerous to drive fatigued as it weakens the reflexes of the person. To minimise the risk of an accident, you should not get into the driver’s seat when you feel fatigued. In addition, you should not drive during the hours you normally sleep, and you should not neglect to take a break on long trips.
  • Speeding: It is one of the biggest factors that cause accidents. While driving a motor vehicle, you must constantly control your speed and follow the rules. You should also adjust your speed, taking into account the weather conditions.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs: It is incredibly dangerous to drive at such times, as alcohol and drugs impair the perception of the person, reduce their vision and weaken their reflexes.

In addition, it is necessary not to drive after the use of not only alcohol or drugs but also some medical drugs. For this reason, if you have a drug that you use, you should evaluate whether it will affect your driving.

  • Distraction: Many factors can distract you while driving, such as looking at the phone, reaching to pick up something in the car, thinking about other things, watching anything on the road. For this reason, you need to make sure that you give your full attention to the road.
  • Not wearing a seat belt: Although not wearing a seat belt is not a direct cause of an accident, the risk of death or injury increases by 50% in accidents that occur when the seat belt is not fastened.

You were involved in an accident in NSW even though you followed all the rules and were careful. What should you do?

You can claim compensation to compensate for the damage caused in the accident. If you do not know where and how to file your compensation claim, you can contact compensation lawyers in NSW. They will assess your situation, determine the compensation you can get, and work with you to get compensation.

While determining the amount of compensation that can be received in traffic accidents, the fault of the person in the accident is also taken into account. For this reason, CTP lawyers can be a good solution to evaluate the situation well.
