Any type of liquid spillage on a road can pose an immediate threat of injuring you in a road accident in South Tyneside, regardless of what type of vehicle you’re using, be it a car, van, lorry, motorcycle or pushbike.
Road spillages can also be a threat to pedestrians attempting to cross a road. If you suffer the misfortune of being injured in a road accident in South Tyneside that came about as a result of a spillage on the road, there will be a chance that you may well be able to sue the party responsible for the mess, or the failure to clean it up, for personal injury compensation.
Spillages and a road accident in South Tyneside
As spillages on the road might not be immediately obvious to road users, especially at night or at times of low visibility, they pose a particular risk of exposing drivers to the possibility of being injured in a road accident in South Tyneside that was not their fault.
Imagine that you were making your way home at night after a long day at work, only to lose control of your car after hitting a large spillage of oil and ramming into a wall. If you were to suffer injuries that required you to seek medical attention, you may well have a personal injury case on your hands.
If it’s possible to identify the owner of the vehicle that was responsible for the spillage or the company that owned it, a top 100% no win no fee solicitor might be able to take action against them. If it transpires that the spillage concerned had been lying there for a while after being reported to the local authority that was responsible for the road and it had failed to clean it up, you might have a case against your local council.
As most areas of personal injury law are fairly complex, your best bet will be to seek out the advice of a top-flight 100% no win no fee person injury solicitor if you have been hurt after coming off worse from an encounter with a spillage on the road.
