Have you been hurt in a tram accident?
In a bid to find cheaper and more environmentally friendly forms of transport, many councils around the United Kingdom are trialling the use of trams. With some cities having installed a tram system already, it is proving to be a popular accompaniment to the existing public transport services available.
Whilst many larger towns and cities in the United Kingdom do need more public transport services, not everyone is in agreement that tram services are suited to everyone’s needs. Although councils aren’t necessarily planning to reduce the number of existing trains and buses available, many people worry that the introduction of a tram services will be in place of an existing service, rather than in addition to it.
However, with many councils under pressure to find green alternatives to current public transport methods, trams may be a viable solution and their use may become more widespread. Unfortunately, though, the introduction of a tram service won’t necessarily limit the number of injuries and accidents which occur on public transport.
If you’ve experienced an injury whilst using a tram or another type of public transport, you may want to know exactly what caused your injury and how it could have been prevented. This information can be vital if you’re considering making a compensation claim.
