Bordered by Cambridgeshire, East Hertfordshire, Luton and Bedfordshire amongst others, North Hertfordshire is a popular destination for commuters looking for a quieter place to live.
This popularity is reliant on the area’s transport links, which connect the people of North Hertfordshire to surrounding towns and cities and onwards to the rest of the UK. These transport links are vital to the lives of many, and the safety and security of passengers should be of paramount importance.
Unfortunately this is not always the case. Neglect or carelessness by maintenance workers, or a lack of concentration from bus or train drivers can end in a variety of horrific accidents.
A public transport accident in North Hertfordshire can be serious
Whether it’s a broken bone caused by a trip or fall, a head injury caused by a train crash or a whiplash injury sustained during a bus making a sudden stop, the repercussions of a North Hertfordshire can be severe.
When an area has such a reliance on public transport, it is important that those who are employed to keep passengers safe do everything in their power to do so. It is also important for those responsible for the employment and training of these people to ensure that their staff are willing and capable of maintaining the health and safety of commuters at all times.
If these people fail to do their jobs correctly, the repercussions for you can be painful and damaging. The physical, emotional and financial issues caused by a public transport accident in North Hertfordshire can be incredibly difficult to get over.
You are not to blame
If your car was parked, and somebody drove into it, you would not be expected to take the blame. If somebody threw a rock through the window of your home, you would not be expected to take the blame. Why should a public transport accident be any different?
If you wouldn’t take the blame when someone else’s mistake caused damage to your property, you certainly shouldn’t be expected to take the blame when someone else’s mistake caused damage to you personally. If an error on the part of somebody else leads to an injury while travelling on public transport, you are entitled to be compensated.
