The country is divided into an assortment of unitary authorities, each responsible for a specific area. One of these is called Cheshire West and Chester, which refers to a large area of the county of Cheshire. As you might guess, it takes up the western portion of the county, along with a large part of the central region. It was only created in 2009, and some 332,000 people live here. A population this large means there are almost certainly going to be a few accident claims in Cheshire West and Chester each year.
These claims could range from accidents on the roads to accidents taking place at work. Both are uncommon, but you never know when something might happen to trigger an accident. The same applies to incidents that happen in other situations too, as you will see.
What kinds of accident claims in Cheshire West and Chester could be made?
Any accident that results in you being hurt because of something someone else did through negligence could give you an opportunity to claim some compensation. The best way to work out whether you could win anything would be to speak with a solicitor who has experience of such claims.
It is highly unlikely you would be able to claim if you cannot prove negligence, but in many cases injured parties have evidence from the scene or from witnesses that supports their argument for compensation to be made. A good solicitor can provide some advice if you’re in this situation.
