Living in the town of Stepps
Stepps is an area located just outside of Glasgow. However, due to the fact that it is so close to Glasgow City, many regard Stepps as a suburb of the city. Because Stepps is so close to Glasgow, many who live in the area travel by public transport or car to work in the city as there are far more job prospects. While there are a number of job opportunities in Stepps itself such as in the local shops, schools and council, there are just far more opportunities for those who are willing to travel to the city of Glasgow.
As mentioned above, one of the most commons methods of transport to Glasgow from Stepps is by bus or train. Not only can it be more cost effective to travel by public transport, but it can also mean that those who choose to travel this way don’t get stuck in traffic coming in and out of the city.
Downsides of public transport
Yes, public transport can be a good method of travel, but it also has its downsides as our expert solicitors in Stepps know.
Bus travel – because, like cars and other road vehicles, buses travel on the roads, this can mean they are susceptible to enduring an accident due to the negligence of other road users. An accident on a bus can be a very harrowing experience and can cause serious and sometimes even fatal injuries. Not all bus accidents are caused due to a crash. Some accidents can take place if the bus is not up to standard and interiors are faulty or damaged.
As a passenger on a form of public transport, if an accident was to happen, you would not be responsible. In a situation like this, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation through leading claims company Accident Advice Helpline and solicitors in Stepps.
Train travel – Travel by train is one of the most common methods of transport in the UK. Due to the fact that they travel only on rails and not on main or public roads, they tend to be deemed more safe. However, it has been known for accidents on board trains to occur. For example, hazardous items such as trees, bricks or animals on the line can cause a train to either derail or halt to an emergency stop. Both scenarios could cause a serious injury to you or other commuters. Again, if you can prove that the injuries sustained and seen to by a doctor were caused due to an accident out of your control and within the past three years, you could be entitled to claim compensation through our solicitors in Stepps.
