How much do you travel?
It seems we are all travelling more and further distances too. Research suggest that between 1952 and 2007, the distance we travelled in any one year, rose by 275%.
That is a huge increase by anybody’s standard but what is your favourite mode of transport? Will you need the help of our solicitor in Stoke sub Hamdon to claim compensation for injuries?
Looking at transportation and the help available for accident victims
Cars, vans and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) – there are more cars on our roads than ever before. It leads to congestion, in some cities parking spaces are at a premium and it also means that there are more collisions. Although fatalities are far fewer, people still get hurt.
Car accident? Not your fault? Our solicitor in Stoke sub Hamdon could help… find out for sure by calling Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) on 0800 689 0500.
Bicycles – bikes are great! They are a clean transport method in that they do not pollute the environment and in the process, they help maintain our fitness too. But, the big downside of riding a bike on the road is that other vehicle drivers are not always aware of cyclists as they should be.
Knocked off your bike? You could have a claim and our solicitor in Stoke sub Hamdon is waiting to help!
Motorbikes – a cheaper way of commuting that many vehicles, as well as being a fun way to get from A to B. Like cyclists, however, the motorcyclist can be at the mercy of other road users with junctions presenting just as much as a danger to them, as they are to cyclists. Various campaigns encourage drivers to look out for motorbikes and, with very little bodily protection, some motor bike riders have been seriously hurt in accident.
