A popular Essex town close to the vast Thames Estuary and the vibrant seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea, Basildon has become a coveted living destination for London commuters thanks to its excellent public transport links to the centre of the capital.
From a Norman settlement to a thriving nightlife and retail hub
The town dates back to at least the Norman period and is noted for its Festival Leisure Park, which features one of biggest nightlife complexes in the country and has been nicknamed ‘Bas Vegas’. With a high density of retailers and leisure facilities, the town attracts a large number of visitors, particularly during weekends. In busy environments, there is often an increased risk of accidents and injuries like slips and falls.
Non-fault accidents can happen at any time, at any location in Basildon
Common accidents that can occur in public settings include road-related injuries, slipping or tripping on wet surfaces or sustaining long-term injuries from using faulty equipment in an industrial setting. When health and safety rules are breached, or someone acts irresponsibly or negligently, we can become victims of accidents through no fault of our own, such as accidents at work. When this happens, it is important to seek justice and contact Accident Advice Helpline.
Did your injury occur in the last three years?
Perhaps you have skidded on a slippery floor that should have been cleared or accompanied by a warning notice. Or maybe you have suffered a slip, trip or fall on an icy surface on your workplace premises and you are looking to make a work accident claim for work accident compensation. If the incident, or any other, took place within the last three years, we want to hear from you.
