Swale is a borough and a local government area in Kent with its administration centre in Sittingbourne. The Swale separates the Isle of Sheppey from the rest of Kent and it is from this that the district gets its name. The Roman road, Watling Street, goes through Swale, and the A2 follows its route within the district, which explains why it is such a straight road. The noun, swale, means a low-lying piece of land that could be marshy, so perhaps in the past Swale was rather swampy. The Romans would have traversed Watling Street either on foot or in chariots, so there could have been accidents on the roads in Swale even in those times.
Accidents on the roads in Swale
If you were involved in one of the accidents on the roads in Swale, you may be reading this because you were injured and are now wondering if you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. Accidents on the roads in Swale, or elsewhere in the country, that involve any motorised vehicle should be attended by the police. They investigate the causes of the accident and when the investigation is completed they write a report which you will need if you are to make a claim for your injuries.
Of course, if you are injured in any accident, including one of the accidents on the roads in Swale you should have received medical treatment. Your medical report detailing your injuries and their severity will also be required. It is this that forms the basis for calculating how much compensation you may be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries.
