    Truck Accidents in Spelthorne

    Spelthorne is a local government district in Surrey whose administrative centre is Staines-upon-Thames. The Domesday Book of 1086 records Spelthorne as Spelethorne in Middlesex; at that time it was a Hundred where meetings were held monthly regarding the administration of the area. Staines means the “place at the stones”, and evidence exists that points to the fact that the area has been inhabited at least since Neolithic times. The Romans built a bridge across the River Thames near modern Staines, although the area was abandoned when they left Britain in the 5th century AD. Staines (written Stanes) was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being held by Westminster Abbey. In later centuries it was a stopping point for stagecoaches, so truck accidents in Spelthorne (and in Staines) were probably happening even then.

    Truck accidents in Spelthorne

    These days truck accidents in Spelthorne probably happen to motorised vehicles rather than to horses and carriages. If you are involved in such an accident and were injured the police should have been called to the scene. If you have been injured in one of the road accidents in Spelthorne, you may be contemplating filing a personal injury compensation claim.

    Filing a claim for injuries

    In order to be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that you were in no way to blame for the accident in which you sustained your injuries. You also need to be able to prove that someone else was to blame for it. A personal injury solicitor might help you build a case to prove these things.

    If you need the assistance of a personal injury solicitor, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will try to put you in touch with one of our team of experts who work on a no-win, no fee basis.

    If the police were informed of your accident, they will have investigated its causes and made a report. You will need a copy of this police report as well as a medical report if you are to file a claim. You need to demonstrate that you received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could after the accident. The medical report will be consulted in order to calculate the amount of compensation you might get for the pain, distress and suffering caused you, but this is only a part of the amount that you might be awarded.
