The Irish Road Victims Association Podcast Featuring Donna Price
The Irish Road Victims Association is a NGO that supports those bereaved or injured by road collisions and campaigns for justice, rights and recognition for Road Crash Victims.
It works with all Stakeholders whose common aim to prevent road deaths and injuries, to improve road crash investigations and to improve support services for Road Victims and bereaved families.
It campaigns for a fairer justice system, with more transparent investigations, prosecutions and Coroner’s inquests. It seeks improved support and recognition for Road Victims together with timely accurate information provided for those affected by road deaths and injuries, without excessive fees being applied.
In this weeks podcast, our GP representative Jack Mullen spoke to Donna Price. Donna is the Founder and Chairperson of the IRVA, while also holding many other positions.
Donna, whos son, Darren, tragically passed away in a road road traffic accident in 2006 spoke incredibly about the challenges that face victims and families who have experienced a road traffic accident.
Donna drew attention to how the IRVA has produced a Guide for the Families of Victims of Road Traffic Collisions. It is available for anybody affected by road traffic collisions, including bereaved families.
Finally, in the latter part of this week’s discussion, Donna highlighted the ways in which the IRVA has dealt with some of the obstacles that have been presented as a result of the pandemic.
This week’s podcast is dedicated to Darren Price, and to all of those who have been lost on our country’s roads. May they rest in peace.
