Sedgemoor lies on the Somerset Levels and is the name given to the district council. Bridgewater is the administrative centre of Sedgemoor and other towns in the district are Burnham-on-Sea, North Petherton, Highbridge and Axbridge. The Battle of Sedgemoor (1685) which took place near Bridgewater at a place called Westonzoyland, marked the end of the Monmouth Rebellion, an uprising led by the Duke of Monmouth against King James II. You can still explore the battlefield if you are in Sedgemoor.
Road traffic accidents in Sedgemoor
It may not be such a good idea to go to the battle field on the 6th of July as this is the day the battle was fought and there could be extra traffic on the roads. Road traffic accidents in Sedgemoor may occur more frequently on this date if the volume of traffic is significantly increased.
If you have been injured in one of the road traffic accidents in Sedgemoor, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. If you were involved in an accident involving a motorised vehicle, or several of these, then the police must have been called. You must call the police to road traffic accidents in Sedgemoor or elsewhere if someone has been injured in one involving motorised vehicles.
After the police have concluded their investigation into the accident they will write up a report which you will need in order to file your claim.
How do I file a claim for injuries?
You will probably need the help of a specialist personal injury solicitor so that you can build a case together proving that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured and that it was totally the fault of another person.
You also need your medical report if you wish to file a claim, as you must have received medical treatment for your injuries if you are to file one.
