Have you sustained head injuries in the City of London?
Although part of Central London, the City of London actually lies within the larger area known as London and maintains a city status all of its own. Whilst the City of London once referred to the whole area, London as a whole has now spread far beyond the City.
Just over one square mile in area, the City of London is relatively small, particularly when compared with the combined size of Central London and Greater London. Although approximately ten thousand people live in the City of London, nearly half a million people work in the area and commute into the City on a daily basis.
Recognised as the centre of finance and business in England, it is also considered to be one of the most important business centres in the world. With many corporations choosing to base their headquarters in the City of London, it boasts some of the most well-known business names from all over the world.
Although the City of London isn’t primarily a tourist area, many tourists and visitors do pass through the area whilst they are in London. Due to the popularity of the area, it can be busy at most times of the day but gets particularly busy during rush hours.
As there are so many people living and working in a relatively small area, accidents can happen fairly frequently. If you’ve sustained head injuries in the City of London you may find that you’re able to claim compensation.
