Stafford is a town in the West Midlands, in Staffordshire. Stafford and its environs have been occupied since the Iron Age, as the area had rich mineral deposits. The area was largely forested and part of this ancient forest still exists to the south east of Stafford. The Romans were also in the area, but after their withdrawal from Britain, little is known of Stafford’s history until the 9th century. After the Norman Conquest of 1066, William the Conqueror had a fort built in Stafford and he also built many others in the area. The name Stafford derives from staithe and ford, so it means a landing place at a ford.
Motorcycle accidents in Stafford
Just as everywhere else in the UK there are motorcycle accidents in Stafford which range in severity from minor to major. Of course not all motorcycle accidents in Stafford result in injuries, but if you have sustained injuries in one of these accidents, perhaps you are currently considering filing a personal injury compensation claim.
If you were involved in an accident which was caused by one or more motorised vehicles the police should have been called to the scene of the accident. They will appeal for witnesses and investigate the cause of it. When they have concluded the investigation they will write a report of the accident which you will need if you make a claim for your injuries.
You will also need a copy of your medical report as, naturally enough, you should have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you possibly could after the accident.
Proving another person was to blame
If you wish to make a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you sustained your injuries. You also have to prove that another person was responsible for the accident. To do this you may need the services of an experienced personal injury solicitor who specialises in handling claim cases for clients who were injured in motorcycle accidents.
