Brentwood is a town within, and also the principal settlement of, the borough of Brentwood within the ceremonial county of Essex in the south of England. The town is situated in the London commuter belt, 20 miles (30 km) north-east of Charing Cross and near the M25 motorway.
The etymology of the name of Brentwood is much discussed and argued over, but one of the most popular ideas is that it comes from the Middle English word Brent meaning ‘burnt’. In this interpretation the settlement’s name would be thought to refer to the main activity within the area of forest which covered the area at that time; being charcoal burning.
The Nature And Population Of Brentwood
As has been touched upon above, Brentwood is indeed within the London commuter belt, meaning that the settlement is largely a dormitory or commuter town for workers in the city. This means that Brentwood is largely a sprawling residential development with a little less retail, commercial or industrial activity than you may expect of a town of its size. The shopping area and high street of the town are growing and developing, however.
The proximity of the town to London and the ease with which commuting can be undertaken from Brentwood is what explains how the town comes to be home to around 50,000 permanent residents. This gives the town a population density of a comparatively lofty 1,200 per square mile and it is this which leads us to the subject of Brentwood accident claim proceedings.
Brentwood Accident Claim Proceedings
Areas with a relatively high population density tend to see more accidents and injuries, and it is for that reason that Brentwood accident claim proceedings can be comparatively common occurrences. With that in mind, then, it is important for residents of the Essex town to know and understand when and why a Brentwood accident claim may be possible, as well as who they could turn to for help with such a claim.
When And Why Claiming May Be Possible
An individual can seek personal injury compensation if and when the actions of another party cause them to suffer an injury. The entitlement to claim exists so that the injury victims can gain a degree of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain which they have suffered.
