While Stockport is a large town which forms part of bustling Manchester and certainly a great place to visit for a day out, it isn’t without its accidents. With lots on offer in the former Lancashire town, Stockport welcomes thousands upon thousands of visitors each and every year. But there’s a downside to busy towns like Stockport, and that’s the traffic they bring in. And undoubtedly, where there’s traffic, there can be accidents. But if you’ve visited the town and been involved in a road traffic accident, you may be entitled to car crash compensation.
Due to ignorance of some drivers on the road, you could find that your day out is spoiled. Of course, everyone has a day where they are not quite as on the ball as usual on the road, but when this kind of behaviour escalates into something which causes injury to others, that’s when blame can be enforced.
Can I make a car crash claim?
If you’ve been injured in an accident on the roads, which wasn’t through any fault of your own, you could well be entitled to a pay-out via a company like Accident Advice Helpline. Here are the instances in which you may be able to make a claim:
- If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault.
- If you’ve been involved in an accident on the road, which you didn’t instigate.
- If you’ve suffered emotional turmoil as a result of being in an accident, which wasn’t your fault.
Any of the above reasons for making a claim could result in you receiving a pay-out.
Unfortunately, car accidents, like the ones in big towns like Stockport, are regular occurrences each and every year, with a huge number of road users suffering the effects. This could be the driver, the passenger, or an innocent bystander who may just be crossing the road or going about their daily business.
If you’ve been affected emotionally or physically as a result of an accident which wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to some funds. Road traffic accident claims made by people like you are successful each and every day, so don’t be put off seeking expert advice.
And as all motorists are required by law to have a valid insurance policy, it could mean that if you’re hurt by a third party motorist, it may be that you can make a road traffic accident claim against them. Or perhaps you’d like to make an untraced driver claim following an accident you’ve been involved in? Either way, seek advice straight away on 0800 689 0500 and do not let the issue lie or you could suffer more than just the odd ache or pain.
