    Unexpected accident claim in Tameside


    Do you think that you could make an unexpected accident claim in Tameside? You may have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You must be able to prove this if you make a personal injury compensation claim. You also have to prove that another person was to blame for the accident. This is because compensation payments are usually made by insurance companies.

    Accidents with wild animals

    If your accident involved a wild animal such as a deer, then you wouldn’t be able to make an unexpected accident claim in Tameside. Deer are hefty animals and can do a lot of damage to your vehicle. They are especially active on and around roads at dawn and dusk and in the months of May and October through to mid-December.

    If a deer is startled by headlights it might freeze as rabbits do. Don’t swerve too much to avoid it, as you may drive straight into an oncoming vehicle. Hit the deer if you have too. Call the police to deal with the deer, as stags can be very aggressive if not killed outright. If you are a motorbike rider this may not apply to you. Motorbike riders are at risk of serious injury if they hit a deer.
