If you’ve been in a car accident, you may need injury solicitors in Ollerton
Ollerton is a town in Nottinghamshire. In January 1929, a terrible bus accident happened near Ollerton where a Mansfield Corporation bus was taking miners from Blidworth to Ollerton Colliery just after 6.a.m, when something went wrong with the steering gear. The driver lost control of the bus and drove into George Dawes of Ollerton who was walking to Rufford Abbey where he worked in the laundry. Dawes was carried by the bus into the hedge and his death was instantaneous. If that happened these days there is a strong chance that Mr Dawes family would be able to claim compensation with injury solicitors in Ollerton.
He was killed
In October 1940, a car which was carrying four men collided into the rear of a stationery lorry at Ollerton. Ernest Clayton (26) of New Ollerton was killed and his body was moved to the Arnold mortuary. His companions escaped serious injury. As the vehicle was not moving, the chances of anyone in the car claiming compensation for personal injuries or death are slim, unless it was very badly parked.
In December 1940, Mr Baldwin, his wife and daughter were taken to Nottingham General Hospital following a motor accident on the Ollerton Road. Apparently, their car collided with a stationery lorry and trailer. All the family were treated for cuts and bruises but were able to go home later. In this case, unless the vehicle was causing an obstruction across a road, there is small likelihood of the Baldwin family being able to claim compensation for their accident.
The point is that if you are in an accident which is due to someone else’s negligence, then there is a possibility that you might be able to claim compensation with injury solicitors in Ollerton. The best way to find out is to telephone the Accident Advice Helpline.
