Mole Valley is a local government district in Surrey which is administered from Dorking. The other town in the district is Leatherhead. The district gets its name from the River Mole which flows through it. The town of Dorking developed from its agricultural beginnings to become a stopping point for stagecoaches travelling on the Roman road of Stane Street which ran between London and Chichester. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the town was called Dorchinges and was the property of the King, William the Conqueror.
Nowadays, Dorking is known for its antique shops rather than for its accident lawyers, but if you happen to need an accident lawyer in Mole Valley, you may be lucky enough to find one.

Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence

While you are at work, your employer is legally responsible for your health and safety.

Your employer should provide you with appropriate protective gear and obey the rules and guidelines laid down by the Health and Safety Executive. Failure to do this could result in workers becoming ill, or having accidents while at work.
You can also have food poisoning if you have eaten out or if you have eaten a product that was contaminated by bacteria. It could be that and accident lawyer in Mole Valley could prove that the negligence of kitchen staff, or the manufacturers of the product caused your illness. There are other examples of such illnesses too.
