    Accident Solicitor in Chelmsford


    Do you need an accident solicitor in Chelmsford?

    It is tempting to just hop into the car on a sunny day and leave the stifling heat in Chelmsford behind to spend an afternoon in the refreshing sea breeze at Southend-on-Sea or to go away for a weekend in Clacton-on-Sea.

    Living in commuter cities like Chelmsford or Colchester in Essex often means not wanting to climb back into the car at the weekend, after you’ve already had five days of commuting. A change is as good as a holiday, you keep telling yourself, and travelling to Southend-on-Sea when everybody else is planning the same get-away is probably not a good idea.

    You decide to erect the new gazebo your wife bought instead and make the garden look really special. Who says you can’t enjoy a seaside holiday in your back yard? You look at the nautical theme for your garden landscape design, as recommended by a respected make-over magazine, and wonder if you’ll be able to lift the heavy panels of the gazebo on your own. Shaped like slender trout but as heavy as a whale, the contraption’s instructions are bewildering. In the end, you call over your foreign neighbour. Isn’t he a linguist? You hope he’ll be able to decipher the technical instructions for putting the gazebo up.

    Eventually, with a heave-and-a-ho you manage to erect your new garden feature. That went well! Nobody got hurt, which is even better. Your neighbour’s wife admires the gazebo over the garden fence and hands you a slice of Apfelstrudel and a cuppa. Absentmindedly, you bite into the sticky slice. Mmmm, it is good – but then your face suddenly contorts, your hands grab your throat and you collapse with a serious food allergy. Almonds are lurking everywhere in this Austrian delicacy!

    When your wife comes home she hears from your neighbour that you were rushed to hospital. How could this happen, she asks, we TOLD you he’s allergic when you came round for dinner last AND when you gave us those chocolate coated marzipan Mozart things for Christmas!

    Och, your neighbour says, those silly allergies, nobody takes them seriously. We thought your husband was a bit of a hypochondriac.

    Negligence is sometimes based on greed for profit, carelessness or just not being trained, but not taking somebody else’s medical condition seriously takes the proverbial biscuit.

    Talk to an accident solicitor in Chelmsford about your case and claim compensation!

    If your accident happened within the last 3 years, you can claim compensation from the negligent party.

    Chelmsford will have any number of solicitors, but not every accident solicitor Chelmsford will handle personal injury claims nor will those that do be willing to take on every type of injury claim. In addition, not every accident solicitor in Chelmsford will offer ‘no win, no fee*’ services.
