Generally speaking travelling by road is fairly safe. Of course, accidents do happen, and sometimes these can be very serious; however, most of us will go an entire lifetime without having experienced a road traffic collision or even witnessing one.
If you are unfortunate enough to have been involved and injured in a road traffic accident then you might want to speak to an experienced injury lawyer in Chippenham today to discuss the possibility of making a compensation claim for the personal injuries you have suffered.
Types of accident
There are many different types of road traffic collisions that you may have been involved in and here at Accident Advice Helpline our injury lawyer in Chippenham are all experienced in dealing with a wide variety of cases. These include cases where you have been involved in an accident as either the driver or passenger in a vehicle, as a cyclist or perhaps even as a pedestrian.
In all these instances it would be possible for you to make a compensation claim if the accident you were involved in was not your fault, occurred within the last three years and involved some form of injury to yourself. For more information you should contact your injury lawyer in Chippenham today.
Bus and coach accidents
One example of where you might be able to make a compensation claim for injury is if you have been injured whilst travelling on a bus or coach.
As your injury lawyer in Chippenham will be very well aware not all incidents of injury occurring on such methods of transport are directly attributable to what we would generally regard as a road traffic collision. Of course, these instances are thankfully very rare, but occasionally accidents do happen, for example, high sided vehicles such as coaches and buses are more susceptible to strong winds, and if you have been on a journey that should arguably have been cancelled because of adverse weather conditions then it might be possible for your injury lawyer in Chippenham to argue that any injuries sustained as a result of any accident occurring were caused by the failure of the managing company to duly protect their customers.
However, other accidents that might cause injury, and which might result in a successful compensation claim include tripping on flooring that hasn’t been secured properly or being injured by falling luggage that has been incorrectly stored in overhead lockers.
You might even be injured at the bus or coach station if there has been a spillage on a marbled or tiled floor that has not been appropriately wiped up or signed.
