Stafford is a town in Staffordshire, and in fact is the county town in this area, as you might assume from its name. It is quite central in the county, and has a population reaching around 68,000 people. Its position means it is quite close to several major cities and areas, including Birmingham and Wolverhampton among others. Stafford personal injury claims do occur in the area at times, although their numbers are thankfully reasonably small.
Claims such as these can crop up for all kinds of reasons. Few people ever know they will be put in a position whereby a claim of this nature can be made. With that said, it is important to keep your wits about you if you are injured in a way that cannot be put down to being your fault.
Was someone else to blame?
This is a possibility you should seriously consider. There are occasions when people are injured and they are not at fault. For example, you may be driving to work in Stafford one day and you go through a green light, only to be struck by a car that jumped a red light on another road leading up to the same junction.
Another type of accident completely might occur if you tripped over an uneven paving stone. Sometimes, if they are not set down properly, they can be at a much higher level than the stones around them. In this case, you might find you trip on the raised edge, falling over and leading to some painful injuries.
