Causes of accidents in Stoke-on-Trent


Are you wondering what are the main causes of accidents in Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke-on-Trent, a city in Staffordshire is famous because it was (and still is) home to the pottery industries (the area is also known as the Potteries). The firms of Wedgewood, Royal Doulton, Minton and Spode (among others) are all in Stoke-on-Trent and they still contribute to the city’s economy. Pottery tours are popular with tourists as are trips on the Trent and Mersey Canal and the Cauldon Canal. Travelling on a narrow boat can be very relaxing, and much less stressful than driving along main roads in built-up areas. Road traffic accidents can lead to serious injuries, although most just damage paintwork and create dents. Accidents on the roads are one of the main causes of accidents in Stoke-on-Trent.

Road traffic accidents

If you have been injured in one of the road traffic accidents, you may still be recovering and wondering if you could make a personal injury compensation claim. There are different types of accidents on the roads, of course, some involving cycles, motorbikes or motorised vehicles, and these might injure pedestrians, drivers and passengers and animals.

If you have been injured in any type of accident, you must be able to prove that it was not your fault, but the fault of another person. If you were a passenger, then this might be easy to prove, and you could be entitled to make a claim against the driver responsible for the accident. Of course, it is the driver’s insurance company that settles personal injury compensation claims.

What to do after an accident on the roads

If you were injured in an accident that involved one or more motorised vehicle, then the police should have been called to the scene of the accident. Drivers are legally obliged to stop after an accident and enquire if anyone has been injured. If they have been, then the police must be called as they have to carry out an investigation into the causes of the accident. They write an accident report on completion of their investigation and this is needed if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Naturally when a person is injured in a road traffic accident, an ambulance should also be called. A medical report is required if you are to claim for your injuries.
