    Accidents on the road in Thanet


    Thanet is a local government district in the county of Kent with its administrative base being in Margate. The Isle of Thanet makes up a large part of the district and this has a rich history. Despite its name the Isle of Thanet is no longer an island, although in the past it was separated from the mainland by the Wantsum Channel. The name Thanet seems to be Celtic, meaning ‘bright’ or ‘fire island.’ However there is some dispute as to the origin of the name, as there was a Phoenician goddess, Tanit, and there are other reasons posited for its name. There is archaeological evidence to show that the area was occupied in the Stone Age and Bronze Age, as well as in the Iron Age. The last ship to sail the Wantsum Channel did so in 1672 and after that the narrow channel silted up and was no longer navigable.

    Accidents on the road in Thanet

    There are accidents on the road in Thanet just as there are everywhere else in the UK, although not all result in people having to be treated for injuries. However, if you have been involved in one of the accidents on the road in Thanet, and were injured, if you can prove that you were not to blame for it, then you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    If you were involved in one of the accidents on the road in Thanet and motorised vehicles were also involved, if anyone was injured the police should have been called to the scene. They must investigate the causes of accidents in which people are injured in an attempt to discover what happened. When the investigations are concluded they will write an accident report. If you make an injury claim after one of the accidents on the road in Thanet, you will need a copy of the police report which they write when their investigations are over.

    You will also need a copy of your medical report to file a claim as you should have had medical treatment as soon as you possibly could after the accident.

    Personal injury solicitors
