Many towns are called commuter towns because they provide a place for people to live that is away from nearby cities, and yet has good rail links to make the journey to work relatively easy each day. Broxbourne is one such town, and has a population of around 15,300 people. It is in the south-eastern corner of Hertfordshire in the east of England. While a handful of people might potentially make claims for personal injury compensation in Broxbourne each year, such claims are rarities when compared to the size of the population.
While some people do drive to work each day, many use public transport. It gives you time to do other things – to read, to listen to music or simply to relax – while on your way to work.
Accidents on public transport
From taxis to buses and trains to trams, there are lots of different ways you can get around while letting someone else get you there. Public transport is run under strict health and safety rules, making it one of the safest ways to get around. Of course, there could potentially be instances where people are injured because someone else wasn’t paying attention.
Perhaps you were travelling in the back of a taxi that was hit by another vehicle. Maybe a bus driver had to perform an emergency stop to avoid a reckless driver and you were hurt by being flung forwards. There are all kinds of ways accidents can potentially happen and all manner of ways you could be injured too.
