    Accident hotspots in Somerset

    The costal county of Somerset is a bustling location, popular with holidaymakers while also maintaining a high residential population and an exciting entertainment scene. Home to the grand city of Bristol, Somerset is also flooded with commuters, who travel the roads of the county each day.

    With the hectic hustle of the county comes an increased likelihood of road-users experiencing a road traffic accident. While this is a risk in all areas of the UK, it is always wise to be aware of problem roads in the area, to prevent avoidable collisions and road-related injuries.

    Accident hotspots in Somerset

    The bend outside country cottages on the A371 at Evercreech, Somerset, has been dubbed as the most dangerous corner in Britain by traffic experts.

    This statement came following road accidents in February 2013, after five vehicles crashed on the bend in less than 12 hours. This five was in addition to a number of other recent severe road accidents on the bend including a lorry, which dropped an entire load of beer into the gardens, and a minibus, which collided with the residents’ wall.

    The local council is unsure of why so many road accidents occur on this stretch of road. After resurfacing and evaluation of the area, the residents and the local authority are clueless as to why these road collisions continue to occur.

    In addition to the A371 at Evercreech, other problematic areas in Somerset include Banwell’s Castle Hill and Monkton Heathfield.

    Claiming for road accident injuries

    When you are involved in a road traffic accident and someone else is to blame, you may be interested in claiming personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.
