With its picturesque scenery and geothermal spring, the High Peak town of Buxton is a lovely place to live and to visit – but solicitors are kept busy, and one major source of work is a famous road that begins there.
The “Cat and Fiddle” is a road named after the pub at its summit, and it is a famous – or, perhaps, notorious – road because it is considered the most dangerous road in Britain!
If you end up with whiplash or broken bones in an accident on this road (or anywhere else, for that matter), and the incident was caused by the other driver, our solicitors can deal with a road accident claim in Buxton for you.
What you should do at the scene
Make sure you get help from the emergency services, if needed, or if in any doubt. Any injuries or property damage means that the police must be called anyway, but if an ambulance is needed, ask for one!
You should also get the other driver’s contact details: name; address; insurer. Get the contact details of witnesses to the accident, too.
Take photos as well. A good photo will capture the driving conditions, as well as any damage to your vehicle, so get your camera or your mobile phone out and take some shots. Later on, photograph your injuries.
Making a road accident claim in Buxton
When you have got your medical needs attended to, you should consider making a road accident claim in Buxton for compensation.
When you get injured, the aftermath can be very difficult. You may lose money through being off work, as well as because you are shouldering an increased financial burden. Taxis, prescriptions, and home helps all cost money – and you wouldn’t need them if someone hadn’t caused you to become injured.
A payout will deal with these losses, in addition to providing you with some money for the injuries themselves. You will be able to put your life back on track, take care of your bills, and relieve yourself of some stress.
