St Albans is a city in Hertfordshire, named after the English saint, Alban, who was the first British Christian martyr. It is believed that he was beheaded at some time in the 3rd or 4th century AD where the cathedral dedicated to him now stands. In Roman times, St Albans was called Verulamium. It was located on the Roman road called Watling Street so it would probably have been a stopping place for travellers. Many inns were to be found in St Albans to accommodate travellers who may have been pilgrims visiting St Albans or travellers heading for London or elsewhere. There may have been road traffic accidents in St Albans way back then, although they would have involved different forms of transport than the accidents that happen in St Albans today.

Documentation needed to file a claim
If the accident in which you were injured involved a motorised vehicle (or more than one) the police should have been called to the scene. They will have investigated the accident and its causes and will have written a report which you will need in order to pursue a claim.
You should have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as possible after the accident, and your medical report will also be needed.
How long do I have to file a claim?
Normally you could expect to have three years from the date of your accident in which to file a claim for your injuries. However, this is not always true, so you should call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your particular claim.
