    Croydon Whiplash Claims


    Croydon is a large town within, and also the principal settlement of, the London Borough of Croydon found in the south of London. The town is situated approximately 9.5 miles (15.3 km) south of Charing Cross and its importance within the capital is demonstrated by the fact that it was defined as one of the 11 major centres within the London Plan.

    It is not entirely certain but most people agree that the name of ‘Croydon’ likely derives from the Anglo-Saxon words Croh and Denu which respectively can be translated as meaning ‘Crocus’ and ‘Valley’. This suggests, in much the same way as the name of nearby Saffron Walden, that the area was once the site of the cultivation of crocuses to produce saffron.

    The Development And Location Of Croydon

    As is the case with many settlements in the UK, Croydon began life as a market town during the Middle Ages but did not begin to grow in earnest until the time of the Industrial Revolution. At this time, the town became an important industrial area, known for car manufacture, metal working and its airport.

    As such, Croydon grew and expanded quickly to become a major centre of population and the importance of the town as such is only enhanced by its location. Croydon is, after all, situated on a transport corridor between central London and the south coast of England, making it a busy and important transport hub.

    Traffic And Accidents In Croydon

    As an important and busy transport hub which facilitates journeys between London and the south coast of England, it is obvious that Croydon will see a huge amount of vehicular traffic. Inevitably, therefore, the town is also an area which will unavoidably see a comparatively large number of road traffic collisions.

    With that heightened number of road traffic accidents furthermore, there will also inexorably be a number which were not the fault of the individual who suffers an injury as a result. It is this, then, which leads us to briefly discuss the issues surrounding Croydon whiplash claims.

    Croydon Whiplash Claims

    If you are involved in a road traffic accident which causes a neck injury and you were demonstrably the fault of another party, then you may be entitled to pursue Croydon whiplash claims proceedings. This is so that you can seek to receive the personal injury compensation which you deserve for the pain that you have suffered through no fault of your own.
