Basildon is a town in Essex which was first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Belesduna. Many of Basildon’s residents commute to London as the town is well served by railway stations (it has three) and there are good road connections too,
If you regularly commute to work, you may have been involved in a road traffic accident, or in an accident on a train or on railway property. If you were injured and are now recovering, you may be contemplating making a personal injury compensation claim, and so you may be trying to find a suitably experienced accident Solicitor in Basildon.

Can you make a claim?
If you and your accident solicitor can prove that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured, and that another person was responsible for it, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You should have received medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident, and your medical report will be required.
If you were injured in a road traffic accident that involved motorised vehicles, the police should have been at the scene. They investigate the causes of the accident and then write an accident report which is also needed if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim.
How long do you have to make a claim?
You usually have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the UK to file a claim, although sometimes, in the case of certain accidents, you have much less time to file a claim.
