A compensation claim for an injury sustained in a road accident that is tyre-related can be made by phoning the Hampshire accident claims helpline
The county of Hampshire is situated on the south coast of England and a tyre company in the county has been working with government agencies to try to decrease the amount of accidents that are related to tyre issues. Representatives of the company, Micheldever Tyres, met with Chandler’s Ford MP and the Department of Transport at the House of Commons this month to discuss injuries and deaths that were caused by faulty tyres.
The chairman of TyreSafe that organises the Tyre Safety Month campaign, Stuart Jackson, said that the meeting was important to increase awareness about tyre safety in the public domain and is a continuation of the progress made during Tyre Safety Month. Stuart added that the meeting shows that the tyre industry shares concerns about tyre-related road casualties and is serious about working together with government and other stakeholders to reduce the number of tyre-related accidents on the roads.
The Chandler Ford MP, Steve Brine, also said in regards to the issue that illegal and worn tyres can cause fatalities with 981 people in the UK injured or killed in the last 5 years as a result of driving in cars with worn or illegal tyres. Also, Brine said that his meeting with the chairman of Micheldever Tyres, Paul Fox, was productive and is pleased with their work on this issue that was based on evidence-based research.
The TyreSafe organisation has estimated that almost a third of all road accidents in the United Kingdom involve people who are driving as part of their work. This figure equates to over 200 people who are killed or injured each week while driving as part of their work activities. TyreSafe has sated that these accidents may have been avoidable with tyre checks either conducted by individuals who are driving or their employer.
