Sutton is both a London borough and a town situated on the North Downs in south west London. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) Sutton, or Sudtone (south farmstead) as it was then named, was a parish with two churches and two acres of meadowland. In fact the name Sudtone dates back to 675 AD at least, as this was when it was first mentioned in a document. The parish at that time had a population of approximately 200 and consisted of around 800 acres of land. There is archaeological evidence pointing to the fact that the Romans were in the Sutton area and there have been finds dating back to Neolithic times and the Bronze Age too. Sutton was on two toll roads by the 1th century, so there have probably been road vehicle accidents in Sutton for centuries, although different vehicles and animals would have been involved in them.
Road vehicle accidents in Sutton
You may have been injured in one of the road vehicle accidents in Sutton, and if you were an innocent victim, you could be wondering if you can make a personal injury compensation claim.

If you were injured in any road vehicle accidents in Sutton that involved a motorised vehicle the police should have been called to the scene.
