There are currently 8 tram network systems in the UK and with plans to develop more tram links across the country, there is no sign of this popular mode of transport fading. Sadly, transport accidents happen every day and the risks are the same for tram travel. Tram accident compensation can be successfully obtained if you are injured through no fault of your own.
Those individuals who are statistically more at risk include cyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicle drivers.
