Compensation for an injury claim in Headley
Headley is a small village in Surrey. It is about 20 miles south of London near Epsom where the Derby is run. The village is on the dip slope of the North Downs at a height of about 600 feet. There has been a village there for a long time as it was mentioned in the Doomsday Survey. It is believed that the name Headley means a clearing in the heather. The acid soil conditions of Headley Heath encourage the growth of heather so that is most probably where the name originated from.
The village is part of the London Green Belt and The Surrey Hills of Outstanding Beauty so there has been no development in the recent years. The village tries to maintain some of its old character but the land is no longer farmed but used for keeping horses as there are many riding establishments in the village and surrounding area. Furthermore, a lot of the land is under the protection of The National Trust, Surrey Wildlife Trust and private nature reserves.
Under the hooves of a horse
In addition to the many horse riding establishments the village has a pub, shop, golf club and cricket club. There is hardly any employment in the village so most people who live there are commuters. However, it is a nice place to visit for a ramble if you are in the area.
It would be unfortunate if you were walking along the country lanes around Headley when some horse riders were coming in the opposite direction and one of the riders was more interested in looking at her texts on her mobile telephone than paying attention to what was going on around her.
If a car drove past quickly and honked its horn, you could be under the hooves of a horse before you could move out of the way. You could be seriously injured and probably need to know about getting compensation with an injury claim in Headley.
