A civil action can be taken to a court of law by a lawyer on behalf of a claimant referred to as the plaintiff, against the defendant. A lawsuit in Manchester can involve a pedestrian who was injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, motor-bike accident or any other type of accident which caused a personal injury.
In such a busy city like Manchester where pedestrians walk in all directions, to and from different buildings, shopping centres, offices, hotels and restaurants, bus station, railway station, universities and colleges, pedestrians get injured as they cross roads or walk on the pavement.
