Grangemouth is known as Inbhir Ghrainnse in Scottish Gaelic, which should give you a clue as to where in the country you can find this town. It actually exists in eastern Stirlingshire and is situated on the banks of the Firth of Forth. Around 18,000 people lived there in the Census that took place around the turn of the millennium, so it is likely to have increased since then. While personal injury claims in Grangemouth do occur, the instance of accidents in this town is very low, just as it is in other parts of Scotland.
Any busy town can require you to have your wits about you as you are travelling through it. This applies whether you are on foot or using public transport, or even driving around town. Negligence can potentially lead to incidents happening, and if someone else doesn’t pay proper attention and causes an accident, it could lead you to be injured in some way.
Accidents on the roads
There are accidents that happen every single day on Britain’s roads. The good news is that most of these are very minor in nature. It may be a simple prang between two slow-moving vehicles for example, which wouldn’t necessarily cause anyone to be injured. With that said, high speeds are not required for people to be injured.
For example, if you are driving along at around 25mph and someone turns across in front of you at a very low speed, the combined speeds of both cars would still be enough to cause potential whiplash and possibly bruising from the seatbelts as they do the job they are intended for. And the higher the speeds involved in a car accident, the more likely it is you would be injured in some way.
Do you have a chance of claiming anything in compensation?
This is a question many people might ask themselves in this sort of situation. If you have been injured in a car accident and it occurred in the past three years, why not see whether you have a chance of claiming today?
