Sutton Coldfield is a town which now forms part of Birmingham, in the West Midlands. It is mainly residential, but does have several large shopping centres, one of the largest parks in the midlands, and areas of industrial activity, although these do tend to be on the outskirts of the town. There are many very busy A roads that run through Sutton Coldfield, and it is not unusual at all for innocent victims to make a Sutton Coldfield road traffic injury claim. These claims are made because the victims have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not their own fault, some time in the last three years.
Road traffic accidents can cause very severe injuries, and victims have been known to have their life changed beyond recognition, and unfortunately, others have not survived the accident. Of course there are some victims who suffer much more minor injuries, but even so, their life can be turned upside down until it has healed.
UK law is on the side of anyone injured in an accident that was not their own fault, and says that you can claim compensation from whoever was to blame. This does not just apply to road traffic accidents, but to accidents of all types.
Sutton Coldfield road traffic injury claim
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident in or near Sutton Coldfield, perhaps you are considering making a Sutton Coldfield road traffic injury claim. In order to stand a chance of receiving compensation for injuries, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injuries was not your fault, but that of someone else.
Also, to be eligible to file a road traffic accident claim, you must have received medical treatment after the accident. Your medical report is used to calculate the part of the compensation you could receive for your injuries.
Apart from your medical report, a copy of the police accident report could prove very useful if you make a road traffic accident claim for injuries. The police must be informed of a road traffic accident in which a person has been injured, so that they can investigate the causes of the accident, and their report often points the finger of blame.
