    Road traffic accidents Stratford-on-Avon


    Stratford-on-Avon in Warwickshire is world famous because of its associations with William Shakespeare, and people flock to it every year. Shakespeare’s birthplace is in the town and Anne Hathaway’s cottage is within walking distance of Stratford-on-Avon. Stratford-on-Avon was founded by the Saxons in the 7th century, and called Streat ford, with Avon meaning river, so it was a ford on the Roman road across the river Avon. In 1196 King Richard I granted the town a charter enabling it to hold weekly markets as by that time the original settlement had grown to become a town. The advent of the railway in the 19th century boosted Stratford-on-Avon’s popularity as a tourist destination and this was the beginning of the town’s modern growth. People enjoy strolling along the river banks and watching the stately swans sailing along it. The Globe Theatre, home of the Royal Shakespeare Company is very close to the river. In those elegant bygone days, who would have imagined road traffic accidents in Stratford-on-Avon?

    Road traffic accidents in Stratford-on-Avon

    If you go to a performance of a Shakespeare play, you might be tempted to cross the road and visit the hostelry known as the Dirty (or mucky) Duck, take care crossing the road though, as you wouldn’t want to become a statistic in the road traffic accidents in Stratford-on Avon figures.

    If you are injured in one of the road traffic accidents in Stratford-on-Avon which involved a motorised vehicle, the police must be called. In fact if you are injured in the street it would be wise to call them whatever the circumstances. You will need the police report which is compiled when they have completed their investigations into the causes of the accident.

    After one of the road traffic accidents in Stratford-on-Avon, if you are injured, you need to seek immediate medical treatment. Your medical report will be used to assess how much compensation you might be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. This forms a part of the total amount of compensation you could be awarded if your claim is successful.

    Criteria for filing a claim

    In order to be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim you need to prove that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured and also that another person was responsible for it.
