Temple Meads is a railway station in Bristol – the largest of its kind in the city. It has been serving people going to and from various parts of the city since 1840, so it is approaching its 200th birthday. The number of passengers passing through the station has increased year-on-year for some time, with around 10.7 million people going through the station in the year 2015/16. If you were looking for a solicitor in Temple Meads, therefore, you would need to look within the city at large.
But you might ask why you would look for a solicitor anyway. There could be many reasons for this, but every year, some people require a personal injury solicitor who deals only with cases whereby people have been hurt because of something someone else did, or should have done but did not. These usually stem from accidents, and can relate to work accidents, accidents caused while travelling, and those that occur on the roads – just to give a few examples.
Accidents on public transport
Many people use public transport each day to head to and from work, or perhaps to see friends or family, or even to go out in the evenings and enjoy a meal and a drink without needing to drive home. There are many reasons why public transport – from trains to buses to trams – is so useful, and that’s why many people use it from time to time, if not regularly.
Accidents are so rare they often make the headlines, precisely because of their rarity. But if you have been injured while on public transport, you may wonder if you stand a chance of claiming some compensation for the injuries, inconvenience, and pain and suffering you have gone through. The amount you could potentially receive would be calculated as per several factors – for example, the severity of each injury, how many injuries you had, and what the outlook is for making a full recovery. Thus, getting professional advice would make a lot of sense if you did find yourself in this situation.
Take the easier route to finding a solicitor in Temple Meads – we can help
It is not always straightforward figuring out if you could claim anything for injuries you have received in an accident. While injuries do not need to be serious to make a claim, they must be proven to have been caused through the negligence of another party. This might relate to another individual, to a company, or to anyone who has acted in a negligent manner – including an employer.
