The South West London suburb of Kingston upon Thames is a sought after place to live. Close to London and within easy reach of the Surrey countryside, the town has a lot to offer.
But it also has a lot of roads, and, due to its location, a lot of traffic. Cars, buses and lorries are never too far away in this commuter belt area, and this means that there is always the possibility of road traffic accidents in Kingston upon Thames occurring.
It’s important to know what to do if you get into an accident that has been caused by someone else, and you’ve suffered injury as a result. Many people know what to do at the scene, in order to take care of things in relation to the usual insurance claim – but do they know that compensation claims can also be made?
Claiming for road traffic accidents in Kingston upon Thames
Of course, personal injury claims are well known today, thanks to their frequent mention in the press and on television and radio. Law firms advertise, and journalists write about claims – not always favourably, unfortunately.
There does seem to be some kind of stigma attached to claiming for road traffic accidents in Kingston upon Thames – a lot of people think it’s a way of getting something for nothing, and the fact that fraud has been perpetrated through the staging of accidents certainly hasn’t helped.
But people are increasingly coming around to the idea that an accident victim shouldn’t have to suffer financial trouble (serious financial trouble, in many cases) because they were injured as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence.
