The village of Goring, or Goring-on-Thames as it is officially called, lies on the north bank of the River Thames in South Oxfordshire, England, and is located in the Goring Gap, an area which divides the Berkshire Downs and the Chiltern Hills, both very popular with local day trippers and tourists.
Goring lies within a 5.5 mile distance of Wallingford and an 8 mile distance of Reading. Oxford is located just 16 miles away, making Goring a convenient place to live for commuters, who use First Great Western Main Line railway to travel to a large number of destinations within Oxfordshire and beyond, such as Oxford itself and Reading.
If you tripped and fell over a briefcase somebody had carelessly left on the platform at Goring & Streatley railway station, you could make a compensation claim Goring against the negligent party and get compensation for your broken elbow or wrist.
If you and your family attended a cricket match at Goring-on-Thames Cricket Club grounds and the tea and crumpets served to you contained something you were violently allergic to, you could make an injury claim against the cricket club, because they have a duty of care to keep you safe while you are on their premises.
A negligent Goring-based employer can also be made to pay compensation to an employee, if years of loyal service were rewarded with industrial illness instead of a good company pension and typical carriage clock.

How long will it take to settle an industrial illness claim?
Industrial illness claims are often complex and can take far longer than say, slips, trips and falls for example. Often there are multiple defendants or negligent parties involved and sometimes the industrial illness has developed over a great number of years and has affected many other victims.
Every injury claim is unique and different. It will depend on your individual circumstances how long it will take to settle your claim.
What kind of industrial illnesses are covered?
to give you a better idea of what’s covered, you can obtain a full list of recognised industrial illnesses from your regional Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit Centre, as such illnesses usually entitle the accident victim to claim benefits.
Among the 70 or so diseases covered are:
- chronic bronchitis or emphysema
- pneumoconiosis (including silicosis and asbestosis)
- osteoarthritis of the knee (coal miners often suffer from this illness)
- vibration white finger (now called prescribed disease A11)
- diffuse mesothelioma as well as several other asbestos-related diseases such as primary carcinoma of the lung for example
