Claiming compensation in Horringer
Horringer is a village in Suffolk in the east of England. It is two miles south west of Bury St Edmunds. In November 1898, there was an inquest at the Six Bells Inn, in Horringer as to the death of Mrs Susan Brown, a widow. It appears that a week earlier she had asked to be given a ride in a four wheel van. The man put some steps on the back of the vehicle and Mrs Brown started to climb them. At that moment, the horse started and Mrs Brown fell out and smashed the back of her head on the ground. She sustained very serious injuries and died from the effects shortly afterwards.
Many fatal accidents were written off as accidental death with no compensation
As that accident happened in 1893, we do not really know if anyone was to blame as so many fatal accidents were written off as accidental death with no compensation for the victims’ families. In many inquests of the time, employers had been negligible and the mistakes they made were discussed at the hearing but even so the deaths were still recorded as accidental although advice was given so that the same accident would not take place again. However, the advice was not always adhered to and if a similar accident occurred, the owners of the works often got fined. However, this did not help the person (or their families) who the accident happened to. It was rare for an accident victim to get decent compensation in the nineteenth century, sometimes they got a little bit of money but it would not be proper compensation.
