Looking for an accident solicitor in Chatham?
At the end of a long day, a seemingly never-ending column of vehicles snakes its way through south-east London towards the garden of England. Make it past the Dartford Crossing and safely negotiate the A2 and you’re on your way to Rochester and Chatham, two cities forever linked with Britain’s great maritime history.
Captain George Vancouver of the Royal Navy, a protégé of the famous explorer Captain Cook, sailed out into the Pacific Ocean in the late 18th century and promptly discovered the Chatham Islands, while his ships “Discovery” and “Chatham” sailed past New Zealand and Tahiti. Vancouver’s exploration of the seas lasted several years, as the two ships covered more than 55,000 miles of previously uncharted territory. Of the 180 men who originally set out to sea, only 6 did not return – they died in accidents rather than passing away from what was usual at the time – disease on-board a crowded ship.
Today’s explorers set out from Chatham towards London, mainly to find a job, go shopping or sightseeing. The daily commute on the M2 motorway can be a tiring experience for people commuting from Faversham, Sittingbourne, Gillingham and Rochester. Some jobs are so sought after they attract commuters from as far away as Canterbury and Ramsgate at the Kentish coast.
While Captain Vancouver’s navy men had no way of legal redress if they suffered injuries in an accident due to a superior’s negligence, today a non-fault accident victim can claim compensation.
If you were injured in a road traffic accident en route from Chatham to London, Rochester or Canterbury, and that accident was caused by another motorist’s negligence, you can claim compensation, provided your accident occurred within the last 3 years.
Was the negligent party laughing at you? An accident solicitor in Chatham can arrange for the modern day equivalent of walking the plank!
Naturally, a personal injury claim is about receiving justice as well as compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income and recovering expenses paid because of your accident. However, making an injury claim is also about being vindicated; that the accident was really not down to anything you did wrong – even if your friends and family know that, in your own mind you may go over the scenario time and again.
An accident solicitor in Chatham or other legal specialist can seek compensation on your behalf, even if retribution comes in the form of money rather than being made to walk the plank or the generous application of a cat-o-nine-tails, as Captain Cook’s contemporaries might have prescribed.
