When you leave your home to go to work, perhaps to do some shopping or for a day out maybe, you expect to return safe and sound. You do not expect to be injured in Rochford, or anywhere else. If we did, we would never leave home.
Accidents are something that happen to other people, we never expect them to happen to us. But over 3 million accidents happen every year in the UK, and the government estimates that at some point in their life, over 80% of people will be injured in an accident.
That means there stands a good chance it could happen to any one of us, and what makes it worse is if the accident you are injured in is the fault of someone else.
British law is on your side if you are injured in Rochford because of the recklessness, carelessness or neglect of someone else, and says you can claim compensation from the guilty party.

The are rules your situation needs to fit to be able to claim compensation for being injured in Rochford:
