    Truck Accidents in Southwark


    Southwark is a borough in south-east London. There was a Roman settlement where modern Southwark is now situated but it was abandoned when the Romans left Britain in the 5th century AD. Later the Saxons settled there and it was called the ‘south work’ which evolved into Southwark. Later in the 16th century it was called “the Borough”. William the Conqueror razed it to the ground in the 11th century, but it was rebuilt and in the 12th century it was granted a charter to hold markets. The Rose theatre was in Southwark, and both Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare worked there. Southwark was also a centre for bear-baiting, a spectacle that was watched by all classes.

    Truck accidents in Southwark

    As in other built-up areas road traffic accidents in Southwark are fairly common, although most of them are minor ones. If you have been involved in one of the truck accidents in Southwark, then perhaps you are considering your options as regards to filing a personal injury compensation claim.

    You may be able to claim for your injuries if you can prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which you were injured. You will also have to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident as there must be a person against whom you can file a claim.

    Truck accidents and motorised vehicles

    If you are injured in one of the truck accidents in Southwark that involved one or more motorised vehicles the police should have been called to the scene along with an ambulance. Drivers have a responsibility to stop and enquire if anyone has been injured and if they have been then the police need to be informed. Failure to stop after an accident is an offence as is driving without a licence or insurance.

    If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or untraced driver, it is still possible to make a claim for injuries and damage to personal property through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).

    Filing a claim

    To file a claim you would need a copy of the police report if they were present at the accident scene, and also a copy of your medical report which gives a prognosis regarding how long it might take you to fully recover from your injuries.
