    Road Traffic Accidents in Staffordshire Moorlands


    As its name suggests Staffordshire Moorlands is a local government district in Staffordshire. Its administrative centre is in Leek with other towns being Biddulph and Cheadle. Leek is a historic market town which was granted its charter to hold weekly markets as well as an annual fair in 1207. Every year there is the Leek Arts Festival which celebrates the town’s cultural heritage. One of Leek’s tourist attractions is its ‘double sunset’ which occurs on and around the summer solstice. There could be an increase in the number of road traffic accidents in Staffordshire Moorlands if crowds of people drive to see the double sunset.

    Road traffic accidents in Staffordshire Moorlands

    If you have been involved in one of the road traffic accidents in Staffordshire Moorlands, you may have suffered an injury, or perhaps you were lucky and simply in shock after it. If, however, you had a serious injury, you might be wondering if you can make a personal injury compensation claim for it. To be eligible to make a claim you must be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident; you also need to prove that it was the fault of another person.

    If you were involved in one of the road traffic accidents in Staffordshire Moorlands which was caused by a motorised vehicle, the police should have been called to the scene of the accident. They will undertake an investigation into its causes and at the end of this, they will compile a report which is needed if you make a claim for your injuries.

    You will also need your medical report and you should have had immediate medical attention after the accident.

    How long do I have to make a claim?

    If your accident occurred within the UK you usually have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, as this is not always the case (sometimes you have a much shorter time period in which to file a claim), call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have left to file your potential claim.
