Although most people view their holiday as an opportunity to relax and get away from the daily grind, preparing for a holiday isn’t always easy. As many people opt to use public transport during part of their journeys, you can be at the mercy of other people when it comes to getting to your destination safely and on time.
If, for example, you’re travelling abroad via a plane, you may want to get to the airport via train, coach or a shuttle service rather than taking your own vehicle. This can prove more costly in the long run as you won’t be required to pay for parking whilst you’re away. Although there are many advantages to using public transport to get to an airport, things can sometimes go wrong.
If the service is delayed, suspended or postponed, you could be at risk of missing your flight. Similarly, if a road traffic collision or a Derby accident occurs, you could be stuck in traffic or even suffer serious injuries. In addition to this, another passenger could inadvertently cause a Derby accident and leave you with injuries before you’ve even departed.
If you decide that you’d prefer to pay the cost of using your own vehicle, rather than relying on public transport, it’s not a guarantee that you will make your flight on time. You could still be at risk of suffering a Derby accident whilst on the road and you could even find that a mechanical fault could result in an unexpected Derby accident.
If a Derby accident has affected your holiday plans, you may want to take action against those responsible. If someone or something else caused your Derby accident, it may be possible for you to make a compensation claim against them with help from a personal injury law firm.
If you can show that you weren’t responsible for the incident, it’s likely that a personal injury lawyer will be able to assist you with your claim and, with their help, you could receive a substantial amount of compensation for your injuries.
Of course, if your injuries aren’t too severe, you may still be able to enjoy your holiday. If so, there’s no need to panic about making a claim whilst you’re away. As most claimants are able to make a claim for up to three years after the incident occurred, you could still have plenty of time to get your claim started once you return from your holiday.
