As with all major cities in the UK, Coventry isn’t shy of road-related accidents. With the hustle and the bustle of busy city life, roads become mayhem and accidents do occur.
Travellers in a rush to get from A to B and commuters are distracted by their day at the office, a day on city roads is often a road traffic accident waiting to happen.
The most dangerous road in the West Midlands
That being said, not all cities are said to be home to the most dangerous road in the West Midlands. According to a 2013 study by The European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP), the A426 is the most dangerous road in Coventry.
This finding is based on an analysis of the number of road accidents against the volume of traffic along the road over a four-year period, between 2007 and 2011.
Road accidents: Placing blame
Whether you have experienced a road-related accident in Coventry or any other area in the UK, it is likely that you will want to know the cause of any harm you have suffered.
If you feel that a third party driver or the local council are to blame for the injuries you have sustained, you may want to claim personal injury compensation. In this case, it is important that the road accident in question occurred with the last three years and that you are able to provide evidence to suggest that you are not to blame for the incident.
How to support your claim
At the time of your road traffic accident, it is vital that you remain calm and collate as much information as possible to help support your case. This includes:
- Details of any third party drivers – name, contact information and registration plate numbers
- Photographs of any damage to your vehicle
- Witness name and contact details where possible
- Police report numbers
