The picturesque town of Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire is more widely known for its waterways and scenic countryside than anything else; but in recent years there have been a lot of road accident claims in Tewkesbury as a result of mistakes by road users.
When it comes to making road accident claims in Tewkesbury, anyone injured on the roads in an incident that was not their fault may be eligible – even if they’re a passenger in the vehicle that causes the accident.
Accidents happen and people make mistakes, but out on the roads these errors can be particularly costly. Rather than being able to dust themselves down and carry on with their day like they would with your typical ‘accident’; those injured on the roads are more likely to need a spell in hospital and subsequent physiotherapy in order to get back on their feet.
All road users are at risk
It isn’t just the driver of a car who can be affected, the passengers in the vehicle can be just as badly injured, if not worse, and pedestrians are also at risk – especially in built up areas.
The number of cyclists involved in accidents with motorists is still alarmingly high across the UK with drivers often failing to spot them due to large amounts of traffic in the area or their lack of visibility.
Drivers and riders make mistakes, nobody is perfect, but when an accident does occur it’s not always easy to accept. Sometimes driver errors change people’s lives forever, causing the kind of injuries that leave people off work, even unable to walk in some cases; and that’s why people tend to make compensation claims.
Why are people making road accident claims in Tewkesbury?
The compensation won’t help people to heal any sooner, but it will help to relieve some of the additional stress surrounding the situation. If the accident leaves an innocent victim in hospital for several days, weeks or even months, it means that they are unable to go to work and, subsequently, they don’t get paid their usual salary.
This means that they may be unable to pay the bills and there is extra pressure on their partner to bring in the money each month. Many victims choose to use the compensation money received as a result of their RTA claim in order to cover these costs, at least reducing the amount of stress they have to deal with while they recover from the accident.
