Are you wondering how people get compensation after road traffic accidents in Flint? Flint is a coastal town in Flintshire, north Wales, close to the River Dee. Flint can boast that it has Wales’ oldest town charter, which was granted in 1284. The castle at Flint was the first of Edward I’s “iron ring” of castles to be built in Wales, and its construction began in 1277. However, the castle was burned by its defenders (so that it could not be used by the Welsh) when it and the town were attacked by Madog ap Llewellyn during the revolt of 1294-5. In the later revolt of 1400 Owain Glyndŵr was also unsuccessful in his attempt to take the castle. It has its place in history, as Richard II was given up to Henry Bolingbroke in it in 1399, which event is immortalized by Shakespeare in Act III, Scene III of Richard II.
Today, the Wales Coast Path skirts around Flint, with some sections of this 870 miles route being accessible to the disabled, horse-riders and cyclists.
Road traffic accidents in Flint
If you have been involved in one of the road traffic accidents in Flint, you may be worrying about getting back to work and your financial situation. You may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you were the victim of one of those road traffic accidents in Flint. You must be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured, but that someone else was. You should also have had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as was feasible after the accident. You will need your medical report so that compensation can be calculated for the pain distress and suffering caused you by your injuries.
If you were injured in any of the road traffic accidents in Flint, or elsewhere in the British Isles, you should have informed the police, who will have appealed for witnesses and compiled a report, which you will also need to file a claim.
What does compensation cover?
Apart from the amount payable for your pain and suffering, compensation can also cover loss of future earnings. You can also claim for the cost of medication (keep receipts) and care, as well as medical treatment and all expenses that were incurred as a result of your injuries. If you are unable to do something that you used to enjoy doing, perhaps a hobby, then you can also be compensated for this loss of amenity. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your injuries.Open Claim Calculator
