What kind of travel accident compensation claims occur in Richmond?
The most common types of travel accident compensation claims that occur in historic towns like Richmond are slips, trips and falls as the result of uneven ground and sometimes slippery cobblestones. Take care to avoid suffering a slip or a fall in Richmond’s historic market place by being aware of other people and any potential slip hazards around you, particularly if it is a busy day. Additionally, wear sensible shoes which won’t cause you to suffer a trip or a fall easily.
Driving around Richmond’s narrow streets and country lanes can provide some very pleasant scenery, but it may increase your chances of suffering a road traffic accident. If you are a first-time visitor to the town then you can reduce your chances of suffering a personal injury on the road by familiarising yourself with a road map of Richmond, or using a satellite navigation system to avoid taking any wrong turns. Similarly, ensure you are always fully alert when at the wheel to avoid a car crash on the road.
