Looking for an accident solicitor in Teignmouth?
Teignmouth is a lovely little port town on the Devon coast, not far from Torquay. It sits at the entrance to the River Teign – hence its name. Over the River Teign from Teignmouth is the pretty village of Shaldon, and the two places are connected by a regular small ferry, and a modern road bridge. Both Teignmouth and Shaldon are very popular with tourists in the summer, who enjoy the sandy beaches or hunting for crabs.
However, despite its quiet charm, an accident might happen in Teignmouth at any time of year. So it’s a good idea to know whom to contact and what to do in the event of an emergency accident. If you are involved in such a mishap, try to find evidence of important details which may help your claim.
