Chelmsford in Essex was granted city status in 2012, and today is a thriving modern hub for business including retail, science and technology and finance. It is a popular commuter town for many people working in the City of London and Docklands areas, thanks to excellent transport links into London.
The city itself has a busy nightlife scene, making it popular with young people from around the Essex area. The many cultural attractions like the Chelmsford Museum and RHS Garden Hyde Hall make it popular with tourists too, and locals can enjoy outdoor activities including fishing, country parks and the Lee Valley White Water Centre. It is also home to the popular V Festival, one of the largest summer music festivals in the UK. As such, its already-sizeable population grows significantly during summer with many visitors and tourists arriving in the city.

Slips, trips and falls in Chelmsford
It might surprise you just how common slips, trips and falls in Chelmsford are. They don’t just happen on streets or pedestrianised areas; they can also happen in shops, offices, visitor centres and other public spaces.
Almost 40% of all non-fatal injuries self-reported to the Health and Safety Executive between 2013/14 and 2015/6 were attributed to accidents involving either lifting and handling or slips, trips and falls. Falls from height are still the leading cause of serious injury or death in the UK.
Many slips, trips and falls are caused by issues which could have been avoided. For example, loose wiring or cabling, excess liquid such as water or cleaning products on the floor, poor lighting, poor housekeeping or even unsuitable floor coverings. Sometimes they are just plain bad luck, but on other occasions, your accident could have been avoided if someone else was doing their job properly.
If you were injured in an accident like this and you believe someone else was at fault, you could seek recompense for the situation. Don’t waste time and effort hunting for a personal injury solicitor in Chelmsford; talk to Accident Advice Helpline today. We can handle most claims entirely over the phone, and it’s unlikely you’ll need to go to court. Call today and let our experts take care of everything.
Work accident in Chelmsford
Chelmsford has a lower-than-average unemployment rate and a high number of well-educated workers. Many people are employed in professional, managerial or directorial positions, with a higher than average ratio of skilled tradespeople as well.
Many people are aware of the law regarding employers’ responsibilities for the health and safety of their workforce, but the law is a little more complex for self-employed people or freelancers, including those who work in a trade. Self-employed people are, of course, responsible for their own health and safety; however, if they are involved in an accident that happened in a workplace where they had no control over the safety, including working under the control of a third party, they could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. The Health and Safety Executive has some good guidance for such workers on their site.
If you were injured in a work accident in Chelmsford as a freelancer or sole trader, don’t just assume that you don’t have a claim. You should seek help and advice to find out for sure, and we can help you with that.
