Amber Valley is a local government area in Derbyshire, which is partly rural, although there are a number of small towns which were dependent on the coal and engineering industries. The town of Ripley was in existence before the Domesday Book was compiled in 1086, and is recorded as belonging to a man named Levenot. Henry III granted the town a market charter in 1251, although at that time the spelling of the town differed from the modern spelling; then it was Ryppeleg. Ripley could have a weekly market as well as an annual 3-day fair around the feast day of St Helen, and this fair is older than the more famous Goose Fair held in Nottingham. These days Ripley has a market on Fridays and Saturdays and the Farmers’ Market is held on the first Saturday of every month in the market place. No doubt there is more traffic in towns in Amber Valley when markets are held, so extra care should be taken to avoid accidents. However, these do occur, and perhaps you believe that you might have an Amber Valley road traffic accident claim to file for personal injuries and damage to property.
Amber Valley road traffic accident claim
If you have been injured in an accident and think that you might be eligible to make an Amber Valley road traffic accident claim, consider your answers to the following questions.
- Can you prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which you sustained injuries?
- Can you prove that another person was to blame for the accident with help from a road traffic accident lawyer?
- Did you have immediate medical treatment for your injuries?
If you can answer ‘yes’ to these questions then you may be eligible to file an Amber Valley road traffic accident claim.
What do I need to file a claim?
You will need your medical report, as the amount of compensation you may be awarded will depend on your doctor’s assessment of your injuries. If your accident involved one, or more, motorised vehicles, the police should have been called to the scene of the accident, and they will have conducted an investigation into its causes. When their investigation is complete, they will write an accident report which you will also need if you are to make an Amber Valley road traffic accident claim.
