Havering is a London borough that falls to the eastern side of Greater London. It was originally part of Essex and today has a population of around 245,000. Only a small percentage of that population finds itself in a situation whereby a Havering accident claim might be a possibility each year. Thankfully, this looks set to remain the case into the future as well.
You might wonder what kinds of accidents could happen in any London borough. The density of the population does mean there are many cars on the roads, not to mention cyclists and buses and other forms of public transport as well. Road accidents do happen from time to time, and they can happen virtually anywhere.
It might well be possible to get away with minor injuries if you were involved in a road accident. However, there is also a chance you could end up being injured more seriously. A lot would depend on how the accident happened, how many cars were involved and what speeds they were travelling at.
Even if you did only suffer minor injuries in an accident however, you could still be entitled to claim a sum in compensation. That sum would be smaller than would be granted for more serious injuries. However, every element of the injuries and their severity will be taken into account whenever a compensation claim is being calculated.
Do you think you could make a claim?
Whatever happened to you, you should consider whether it might be prudent to contact a personal injury lawyer. It costs nothing to do so if you call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and we can provide more details and advice regarding your Havering accident claim.
To see whether you do have a chance to claim anything, you need only contact us initially. The free enquiry line is always available, but if you are on our website and you would rather try a quick online test, you can do that instead. Select the appropriate answers in your case and you’ll get a better idea of where you stand in just a few minutes’ time. But whatever you do, don’t leave it and think you wouldn’t be entitled. If you were in a position to claim and time ran out because you didn’t call us within three years of the accident, you may eventually regret not calling.
