Man hit by car immediately after leaving taxi

A man has been left with injuries after being struck by an oncoming vehicle moments after he climbed out of a taxi. 

The 22-year-old had been dropped off on Berrycroft Lane, Bredbury, but as he crossed the road he was hit by a silver Volkswagen Passat.

The man was taken to hospital with suspected head injuries but a scan revealed they were not life threatening and he is in a stable condition.

Police have appealed for witnesses; anyone with information can call 101 and ask for Greater Manchester Police's road policing unit.

Claims if you have been involved in a hit and run incident

Being involved in a hit and run incident can be one of the most tragic and traumatising events to go through and in most cases it can leave the victim with severe mental and physical limitations.

Making a claim for compensation could be the best way to recoup any losses you have incurred and get you back on your feet.
