Making a claim for a road traffic accident in Knutsford
When road traffic accidents occur, they can affect numerous people. If you were driving a vehicle at the time of the incident, you may have sustained injuries but any passengers you were carrying may have been hurt as well.
This is particularly problematic is a public transport vehicle is involved as there may be numerous passengers who have been hurt or injured.
Whilst anyone can suffer serious injuries as a result of a road traffic accident, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians are often worst off. This tends to be because they don’t have any protection if they are hit by a vehicle.
