Situated 13 miles east of Shrewsbury and 30 miles west of Birmingham, Telford is a centrally-located and fast-growing town. Situated close to the M54 motorway, it has good transport links which can potentially pose a risk of road traffic accidents.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident in or near to Telford, then you should check your eligibility to make a claim for compensation. A negligence claim in Telford can be made if you were injured as a result of an accident that happened in the past three years for which someone else was to blame. If that’s you, then you should take action.
Why claim compensation?
If you have been injured and it was not your fault, compensation is there to protect you. You should not suffer emotionally, physically or financially following an accident for which someone else was to blame, and whilst compensation cannot reverse your accident, it can go some way to helping you during the days, weeks and months that follow.
Compensation for personal injury claims will take into account:
- The type and severity of your injuries;
- Loss of earnings if you are unable to work;
- Medical expenses;
- Care costs;
- Specialist equipment or home modifications; and
- Emotional impact.
