As you might guess from the name, Bath and North East Somerset is the name given to a district in this part of Somerset, which encompasses Bath among other areas. Part of the area was once covered by the now defunct county of Avon. Around 187,800 people live in the area, covering over 135 square miles. With a high population such as this, it is perhaps no huge surprise to learn some people have cause to try and claim Bath and North East Somerset compensation each year.
Thankfully, the numbers of such people are very small, and few living there will ever need to consider making claims. However, things happen, and sometimes someone might be hurt even though they did nothing wrong. We all recognise that if we don’t take enough care, perhaps while driving, or working, or indeed doing anything else, we could create a situation whereby someone else is hurt.
Enjoying a safe area
The overwhelming majority of districts throughout the UK are run to high standards and do not neglect their health and safety duties and requirements. However, if things did go wrong, it could be found that a local council was at fault for not attending to a situation that led to an accident occurring.
Let’s say, for example, you are cycling along a road and you are observing all the rules of the road to stay as safe as you can. If your front tyre suddenly hit a pothole in the road, it could lead to you being thrown over the handlebars and off your bike. Since you are already in the road, it could put you at risk of being run over, too. Even if you wear a helmet and other protective clothing, that pothole could lead you to suffer several nasty injuries.
