Have you been hurt whilst on your way to work?
Although many people attempt to live within a reasonable distance of their place of work, many people still face a significant commute each day. For example, if you live in a London borough and work in Central London, you may technically only be a few miles away from where you work. However, the sheer volume of people and the traffic congestion can mean that it can take you longer than you might expect to actually get to work.
In smaller towns, many people are able to drive to and from work each day but if you live in a larger City, such as London, it may be very difficult to drive to your workplace. In addition to the heavy volume of traffic, additional taxes, such as the Congestion Charge, could simply make it too costly.
If you’re unable to drive to your workplace and it’s too far to walk or cycle, you may be forced to use public transport. Although this can be more cost effective than driving, it is still expensive and many people are forced to pay thousands of pounds each year just to get to and from their place of work.
Although strikes and delays can make it harder to use public transport, on the whole there is a relatively good service, particularly in larger areas. Whilst many people use public transport every day without any problems, it’s inevitable that from time to time accidents and injuries can occur.
Just like other vehicles, public transport can be affected by the volume of traffic. Although buses are allowed to travel in dedicated lanes, if there are more cars on the road, they may be more likely to become involved in an accident or collision.
If you’re involved in a road traffic accident or you’re hurt whilst using public transport, there’s a chance that you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation and, with help from a personal injury solicitor in Loddon, you could successfully obtain compensation for any injuries you’ve sustained.
