Vale Royal was a local government district in Cheshire, also recognised as a borough, but it ceased to be in 2009. It was in force from 1974 until that time, and had three notable towns included in its area. It existed on the northern edge of Cheshire, and back then, there were a few people who had a road accident in Vale Royal.
Road accidents can happen anywhere – from a minor country road to a motorway. Very few people will have one in their lifetime, but we are not all this lucky. After all, even if you do everything possible to be a safe driver, we cannot say the same of everyone else on the roads. Even defensive and safe drivers could encounter someone who takes very little care over their driving skills.
Experiencing a road accident
Road accidents happen every day all over the country. Despite that, it would be rare for someone to be caught up in an accident. Even when something like this does occur, injuries may either be non-existent, or minor in nature. Only a very small proportion of car accidents result in serious injuries. However, as you may already know, even minor injuries such as mild whiplash or perhaps bruising from the seatbelt locking to keep you safe in the vehicle can be painful to deal with for days after the accident.
Some people also find it difficult to get back in a car again after having a road accident. This could happen to both drivers and passengers, although not everyone is affected in this way. If someone has experienced psychological issues following a road accident, and they needed to go for counselling, this could also be borne in mind when assessing any chance of receiving compensation from the accident. Every case is different, however, which is why it is of paramount importance to ensure you have a good chance of seeking compensation successfully.
