Solihull is a town in the West Midlands that has several major roads running through its centre. It also has a large hospital, and one of the big car manufacturers has a factory there. There is so much traffic runs through the town, that it should be no surprise there are many Solihull road traffic accidents.
Situated not far from Birmingham, Solihull is considered to be one of the more affluent areas of the country with many huge houses and very expenses cars on its roads. It is a very pleasant area to be in, but very close to Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre. So a lot of traffic travels through it to get to these places. So many people use the roads, it should be no surprise there are many Solihull road traffic accidents.
From what has been said, Solihull does not sound like the rural town it is. It is not made up of little back streets, but is open and spacious and it is easy to see why it is such a desirable place to live. Right at its core, it has an enormous shopping centre that is known throughout the Midlands, and people travel from far and wide to go there. Just more people travelling on the roads, and it really should be no surprise that there are many Solihull road traffic accidents.
Solihull road traffic accidents
In reality, Solihull has no more road traffic accidents than any other large town in the UK. Wherever there are busy roads, often with drivers in unfamiliar territory, there will be road traffic accidents. In fact, the government estimate there are over 10,000 of them every week.
Many of this number are minor accidents between vehicles, with no one being seriously injured, but last year 190,000 people were seriously injured or killed on UK roads, and many of those will have been in accidents that were not their own fault.
The rights of faultless victims
If you have been in any accident that was not your own fault, as long as your injuries needed medical attention, and the accident happened no more than three years ago, then you are entitled to compensation from the guilty party.
That is law in Britain, and is a legal right you should make sure you see through. If someone damaged your property, you would expect them to compensate you for the damage they had cause, and they should do the same if they damage you.
