The county of Kent in south east England is known for its county cricket team and also known as “the Garden of England.” The county town of Kent is Maidstone, although both Canterbury and Rochester have city status. Canterbury has at its centre, an historic World Heritage site and of course there is the iconic cathedral where the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas à Beckett, was murdered in 1170 on the orders of King Henry II. After his martyrdom pilgrims flocked to Canterbury to visit his shrine and of course, they were immortalised in Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales.” Other saints were also associated with Canterbury including Saints Augustine, Anselm and Adrian of Canterbury. It was Augustine who is said to have founded the cathedral in 597.
Today, if you visit Kent you have the opportunity to sample Romney Marsh lamb. The meat from sheep who have grazed on the salt marshes, and probably samphire, is a delicacy. Then there are the famous Whitstable Bay oysters and, naturally enough, Dover sole and other fresh fish and shellfish – a true foodies paradise!
Do you require the services of an Accident Lawyer in Kent?
If you have been sampling some of the local produce in Kent, you probably won’t get food poisoning, although you could, if you have eaten a contaminated product. Did you know that if you have food poisoning you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against whoever supplied you with the contaminated food? In order to file a claim, you would need to find an accident lawyer in Kent to help you prove that your illness was the result of another person’s negligence.
Chicken and shellfish are the two main culprits when it comes to food poisoning, as the bacteria campylobacter can lurk in them when they are undercooked. If you ate at a restaurant and ended up with food poisoning, you need to have medical treatment and your doctor should report your case to the Food Standards Agency who will investigate its causes. You will need to provide an accident lawyer in Kent with a copy of your medical report if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim for your illness.
