Halifax had a collision claims frequency of 7.12% (per 100 cars), the highest rate in the study.

If you’re injured in a car accident by a reckless or drunk driver, you have every right to seek compensation for your injuries. However, if you weren’t wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, the amount of compensation owed to you can be significantly reduced. This is because not wearing a seatbelt is a form of negligence, and that’s one of the deciding factors in almost every personal injury case.
