Three Rivers is a local government district based in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. There is actually a confluence of three rivers within the borders of this district, hence the name. The rivers are the Rivers Gade, Colne and Chess. The Domesday Book of 1086 records Rickmansworth as Prichemareworth. The name comes from a Saxon personal name, Ryckmer and ‘worth’ meaning a farm or fortified place. It certainly has a long history. There were probably accidents on the road in Three Rivers long before the motor car was invented, but they would have involved agricultural carts and animals, or stage coaches.
Accidents on the road in Three Rivers
If there are accidents on the road in Three Rivers that involve motorised vehicles, and someone is injured, then the police must be called as well as an ambulance. The police investigate the accident and try to ascertain its causes, and then they write a report which is needed if you decide to make a personal injury compensation claim.
You will also need your medical report if you are to make a claim for injuries arising from one of the road traffic accidents in Three Rivers.
Making a personal injury claim
To be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that the accident you were injured in was not caused by you. Apart from this you also must be able to prove that the accident was caused by another person.
You will probably need help from a personal injury lawyer who specialises in dealing with claims arising from road traffic accidents. Personal injury lawyers tend to be specialists in one or two areas of the claims law, so you need to find an appropriate one. For example, you need a specialist road traffic accident solicitor rather than one who specialises in claims for accidents that happened in the workplace.
