A road accident in Blackpool is not an unusual event, as with most towns, villages and cities in the UK they are a regular occurrence. With the many thousands of road traffic accidents that happen every year there cannot be many places in this country that never have them happen.
A road accident in Blackpool is therefore no exception, and this applies to other associated matters as well, such as making personal injury compensation claims if the accident was not your fault. There is legal criteria for this, and every victim wanting to make a claim has to comply with it for the claim to be possible, even if they have had a road accident in Blackpool.
The criteria for making a claim after a road accident in Blackpool
The criteria for making a claim is the same for all types of accident, and the law states that:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened with the last three years
Three years sounds like plenty of time to make a claim, but it is surprising how quickly that time goes, and suddenly you are too late and lose out on your compensation. It does also appear that the sooner after an accident the claim is made, the more chance it has of success. Do not hang around thinking you have lots of time, contact Accident Advice Helpline to start your personal injury compensation claim.
The injuries you could sustain in an accident that was not your fault

- Head and brain injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Burns and scalds
- Soft tissue injuries
- Back and spine injuries
