Stalybridge is a town in Greater Manchester. Due to the decline of the cotton industry in the first quarter of the 20th century and the development of modern low-density housing in the post-war period, the town is now semi-rural in character.
New towns mean new roads, and whether the roads are new or old, accidents happen on them all the time, they are a daily occurrence. If you happen to be the faultless victim of one, and you sustain injuries, you should contact injury lawyers in Stalybridge about making a personal injury compensation claim.
Injury lawyers in Stalybridge can help with your road traffic accident claim
Our roads are busier than ever, but surprisingly the number of fatalities and injuries has dropped slightly. 1966 was the worst year when 7985 people died on our roads, last year the figure was down to 1754, a significant fall.
The problem is that there were still almost 200,000 injuries, and those are just injuries reported to the police. Other records, such as insurance companies and hospitals, indicate that the figure is more than double the amount.
Many of the injured parties will have been innocent victims of the accident, and would probably be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the person that caused their suffering.
How road traffic accidents happen
Every accident is unique, and they happen in many sorts of different way, quite often they are caused by something as simple as a lack of concentration – it only takes a few seconds to cause an accident. Other ways we see are:
- Motorbike crashes where either the rider or pillion gets thrown from the bike because of potholes or bad road surfaces
- Cycle riders having a car door opened on them
- Car crashes with either the driver, passengers or pedestrians being injured
If anytime in the last three years, you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you should contact injury lawyers in Stalybridge or another legal firm to discuss making a personal injury compensation claim.
