A road accident in Aberdeen won’t necessarily need to involve a car, bus, lorry, van or any other type of traditional vehicle that you would expect to find knocking about most major UK towns and cities. If you live in an area that is fortunate enough to benefit from its own tram network, you could find yourself experiencing the misfortune of suffering an accident that was not your fault if you were to use it.
Have you been injured in a road accident in Aberdeen?
You would have thought that trams would be a relatively safe form of transport. To all intents and purposes, they are, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be completely safe from suffering an accident that was not your fault while using one.
Regardless of whether you’re injured while using one of the tram networks in the UK or one in another country, there will be a chance that you might be find yourself in a position to take some form of personal injury action against the company that operated it with the help of a no-win, no-fee* personal injury solicitor.
Personal injury solicitors and a tram-related road accident in Aberdeen
Maybe you were injured in a road accident in Aberdeen when the tram you were travelling on came to an abrupt half or jolted as a consequence or taking a corner too fast. You might also be knocked to the ground if you were standing on a tram if a section of track had become damaged, or as a result of driver error, particularly if the driver in question was new to the job and had not had much experience.
You might even be involved in an accident that the operator of the tram was not responsible for. If you were unfortunate enough to be injured in a road accident in Aberdeen as a result of a vehicle striking the tram you were on, you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the driver who was responsible, or his insurer.
The next steps to claim your compensation
After suffering an injury in a road accident in Aberdeen that was not your fault while travelling on a tram, the first thing you’ll need to do is seek medical attention. As well as making sure you’re not more badly injured than you think, you will need medical notes from a doctor that prove you suffered the injuries you claim to have if you’re going to launch a successful personal injury compensation claim.
If possible, you should also gather as much evidence to support your claim as you can. Once you’ve done this, call Accident Advice Helpline to find out if we might be able to help you claim the compensation you might be entitled to.
