Guildford is the historic county town of Surrey in the Home Counties, although the administration centre for Surrey is in Kingston upon Thames which is actually in Greater London. There is evidence of a Roman presence in the area which is now Guildford, and also some Celtic artefacts from the Bronze Age have been found there. The castle at Guildford is Norman in origin and overlooks the river crossing (ford) which supplies Guildford with part of its name. It is thought that ‘Guild’ is actually a corruption of ‘Gelde’ or gold as the town was called Geldeford in the 11th century. Perhaps it was so named because of the golden sands on the banks of the River Wey, or because of the golden flowers which grew on the river banks. At any point, residents or visitors to may be involved in road vehicle crashes in Surrey and need help from a solicitor.
Road vehicle crashes in Surrey
Of course there are road vehicle crashes in Surrey just as there are in other counties, although they do not always result in casualties. Unfortunately that was not the case in January 2014 when a police car crashed into the car it was sent to investigate because it was travelling the wrong way along the A3. If you are in a collision you must stop and find out if anyone has been hurt, and if they have the police must be called to the scene. This is the case for road vehicle crashes in Surrey and elsewhere if the accident involved a motorised vehicle.
If you have been involved in a road vehicle crashes in Surrey and sustained injuries, you might be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
