Swindon is nicely positioned equidistant between Reading and Bristol. It sits in Wiltshire, has a population reaching 185,000 people and is categorised as a large town. As far as its position in Wiltshire is concerned, it sits far up in the north of the county. As you might guess, a population of this size does make it relatively easy to locate Swindon accident claim solicitors in the unlikely event you might ever need to do so.
Most people complete their journey to and from work without incident each day. Of course, most people are also focused on getting there without any hassle. Yet for a tiny proportion of people across the country, there can be a chance of getting caught in an accident that happens on the roads. This applies no matter which method they might choose to get to work.
How safe are the roads?
All in all, the significant majority of roads throughout the UK, not just in Swindon, are very safe to use. However, we all have a duty to use them safely and to be aware of other road users and how they might also use those same roads. Giving way to other drivers and even pedestrians isn’t something every driver is keen on doing, if you watch how some people drive each day.
While it is rare for accidents to happen, there are many near-misses. And for those who are unlucky to be involved in a collision, the outcome could mean they have injuries to recover from for the foreseeable future.
Has something of this nature happened to you?
Whether it occurred on a work journey or on another journey, and whether it happened in Swindon or elsewhere, you have to think about whether or not you have an opportunity to be compensated for the incident. Was someone else clearly to blame? Maybe you are completely unsure?
Either way, making a quick call to Accident Advice Helpline could turn out to be in your favour. It doesn’t cost anything to make that call, after all, and since you can call 0800 689 0500 whenever it suits you, you’re never far away from receiving some answers. Dame Esther Rantzen is our patron, and we also offer a 30-second online test that could provide you with more information if you’d rather use that first. Whatever you do, we’re here when you need us.
