The borough of Tameside, Greater Manchester has a large population and is an area which carries the risk of accidents, just like any other area of the UK. Whether you have been involved in a road traffic accident, a railway accident, an accident at work or a slip, trip or fall, you should always look into personal injury claims in Tameside as soon as possible to ensure you have the best chance of success in claiming for compensation.
Accidents can happen at any time and in any place. In Tameside, this may for example encompass shopping centres, the railway station, or any other public place. Risks can also be found in the workplace, especially if employers have failed to take health and safety measures.
If someone else was to blame for your accident, then you should be eligible for compensation. This is best confirmed by an online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test, which will also tell you how much you may be entitled to receive for personal injury claims in Tameside.

- The time, date and location of your accident
- Photographs of the accident site, or any other points of note
- Contact details of any witnesses
- Vehicle registrations, if you have been involved in a road traffic accident
- Your medical report, provided by your doctor or other qualified professional
