Road traffic accidents
Road traffic accidents can occur anywhere, from busy motorways at rush hour to quiet country roads on lazy Sunday afternoons. They can involve multiple cars and vehicles, or one driver losing control. No matter what the situation there is always the possibility that any accident you have been involved in was not your fault. If this is the case for a road traffic accident that you have been involved in then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in North East Lincolnshire.

Example accidents you can make a compensation claim in North East Lincolnshire for
As mentioned there are various ways in which an accident may not have been your fault.
For example, you may be driving along a quiet country road, observing the speed limits when you turn a corner and suddenly find that you are face to face with a flock of sheep. Yes, it is random, but in the countryside it is perhaps not that hard to imagine. You may find that this sudden and unexpected encounter causes you to lose control of your vehicle, and perhaps you crash in to a bush or a tree, or the ditch along the side of the road.
You may think that you couldn’t possibly claim for compensation in North East Lincolnshire following such an accident, as it was you that lost control of the vehicle; however, this may not be the case. An experienced Accident Advice Helpline solicitor could help you make a claim for compensation by arguing that if no signs were present that sheep in the road was a possibility, and the farmer in charge was crossing the road on a blind bend, then you were put in the line of danger. As a result the accident may not be regarded as being solely your fault.
You may find that as a cyclist you are thrown from your bike after hitting an unmarked pothole, or unsigned raised ironworks. If something could have been done to alert you to this potential hazard, and these steps were not taken then the Accident Advice Helpline can help you win compensation in North East Lincolnshire and your injuries.
You can also often make a compensation claim in North East Lincolnshire if you have been injured as a pedestrian. This can include collisions with other road users, or for example, if the pathway you have been using has put you in danger from other road users. This is often the case from construction workers who are seeking compensation after accidents at work.
