If Southampton is classed together with its fellow Hampshire city Portsmouth, which it sometimes is, the combined total population of more than 1.5 million makes the region one of the UK’s most heavily populated metropolitan districts.
With major employers, including two universities, a large local authority, an airport and a big hospital, Southampton is also a significant and long-established port. There are more than 120,300 jobs in the city and employment levels are marginally higher than those in the rest of England.
With so much going on, accidents are of course not unheard of in Southampton, and, regrettably, these can take many forms, from workplace mishaps to incidents on the city’s travel network. As well as having two train stations, the M27 motorway passes through the north of Southampton and the M3 and M271 are also easily accessible.
Unfortunately, it’s also not uncommon for people to have slipped or tripped in Southampton and these accidents can occur anywhere – from schools and supermarkets to parks and restaurants.
If you have a Southampton accident, injury compensation can be claimed. This money may well come in handy to cover additional expenses like travel to hospital appointments, and parking there, or for lost earnings due to time missed from work. There is really no such thing as the “compensation culture”; only funds to which you are legally entitled after an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence.
