The Hertfordshire town of Letchworth Garden City has a population of over thirty three thousand people.The town’s name is taken from one of the three villages it originally surrounded and all three villages appear in the Domesday Book. What was once a collection of villages is now a busy part of suburbia and any compensation solicitor in Letchworth Garden City will find personal injury claims part of his daily duty.
One of the most common causes of such a claim is a driving accident. Each accident is of course unique and there can be many causes for them, although the most common is driver error. If you have been involved in such an accident and it was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation through a solicitor in Letchworth Garden City.
I Need A Compensation Solicitor In Letchworth Garden City

- The accident happened within the last three years
- You required medical attention for your injuries
- The accident was not your fault – if you were a passenger in an accident and your driver was at to blame, this is still not your fault
What sort of injury can I claim for?

- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Loss of earnings
- Travel expenses
- Care costs
Who will pay for my claim?
Usually this would be the insurance company of the guilty driver but sometimes that is not possible. If for some reason the driver is uninsured, or in the case of a hit and run, untraceable, the case goes to a government department called the Motor Insurers Bureau. Any insurance company that offers motor insurance has to be a member of MIB. They then pay a yearly fee that allows injured parties to claim from them if the other driver is uninsured, illegal or cannot be traced.
