Making an injury claim in Great Baddow
The village of Great Baddow is located in Essex, England and lies within a short drive of the county town Chelmsford. To the north the village lies the River Chelmer.
The local economy included gravel and sand extraction from a variety of pits in the area. Pits existed on the grounds of Moulsham High School and beneath Baden-Powell Close. Abandoned gravel pits are hazardous places that for some unknown reason attract children and youngsters like moths to the light. Unless proper fencing is erected with warning signs at every corner, parents can’t feel confident their offspring won’t try to scale the sides of a deep pit or plunge into pools created from former pits.
Owners of land that includes former industrial sites have a duty of care to make such sites clearly visible in overgrown landscapes, fence them off and keep the general public safe. If you went for a ramble to get some fresh air and ended up plunging into a former mine, because the ground under your feet suddenly gave way or if you walked past an abandoned gravel pit and a landslide buried you and your dog, you could make an injury claim and demand compensation from the negligent owner, if no warning signs and fencing had alerted you to the dangers.
