Tamworth is one of the most popular towns in the West Midlands, especially among commuters. As such a popular commuter town, however, it does bring more traffic and that means a greater risk of accidents, as those who have made road accident claims in Tamworth will testify.
Less than half an hour from Birmingham city centre (as the crow flies at least), it has everything a resident needs in a commuter town: good housing, shops, transport links and much more.
Why are there so many accidents on the roads in and around Tamworth?
Driver error is the most common cause of accidents involving cars, vans and lorry drivers; as well as motorcyclists and your more traditional cyclists – even pedestrians.
Sitting in a queue of traffic when you just want to get home in the evening, or following a slow-moving vehicle on a single carriageway can be frustrating, but that’s motoring.
Unfortunately there are people who take it upon themselves to either pass these vehicles or to attempt to bypass the queues however they can. When they do this, they quite often cause an accident because they misjudge the gaps and speeds of other road users – if they even see them.
Every road user has a responsibility to be careful when they venture out onto the roads because their actions can have serious consequences.
When someone makes a mistake behind the wheel it puts everyone else in the immediate area at risk, causing serious injuries to innocent people who had no way of avoiding the incident.
It’s these people who are eligible to make the road accident claims in Tamworth because they were hurt in the accident and it wasn’t their fault.
