    Car accident compensation claim in Redcar and Cleveland


    Do you have a car accident compensation claim in Redcar and Cleveland?

    In November 2013, there was a tragic accident in Boosbeck, east Cleveland. A seven-year-old boy ran into a road and was struck by a car. He died instantly. When the case went to court in April 2105, the court heard that the driver had not been speeding when the accident occurred, although he had been driving faster than the circumstances allowed. His view of the road and the boy had been impeded by the dark and glare from the headlights of a bus according to a report in The Northern Echo dated April 23rd 2015.

    The driver was given an 18-week suspended prison sentence and has an electronic tag and a night-time curfew. He was also banned from driving for a year after he pleaded guilty to driving without insurance.

    The judge said that things could have turned out less tragically if the driver had been going more slowly.

    Of course, not all road traffic accidents in Redcar and Cleveland end so badly. So if you are currently suffering from injuries sustained in a car accident, you might be able to make a car accident compensation claim in Redcar and Cleveland.
