Busy Staffordshire A-roads like the A50, the A520 or the A34 are – perhaps surprisingly – less likely to see road traffic accidents than the over-crowded city centres of Stoke-on-Trent, Stafford, Newcastle-under-Lyme or towns like Cheadle.
At peak shopping times, for example Christmas and New Year sales, or during holidays when everybody is heading to airports in Birmingham or Manchester Britain’s city centres and motorways typically descend into slow-moving chaos. However, many accidents occur at fairly low speeds. Somebody hitting your almost stationary car can still cause you a whiplash injury, if the impact propels you forward unexpectedly and throws you back in your seat again with force.
If your holiday to the Peak District ended at a junction in Leek, when a careless driver smashed into the side of your car, if your weekend trip to Cannock Chase and Lichfield resulted in a visit to Stafford’s A&E thanks to a tire bursting that later turned out to be a sub-standard bargain from your local garage, you can claim compensation for your injuries, provided your road traffic accident happened within the last 3 years.
What other types of injury claims might an accident solicitor in Cheadle deal with?
