    Injury claim in Hoddesdon


    The town of Hoddesdon lies within the county of Hertfordshire in England and was once a coach stop-over for travellers from London to Cambridge and vice versa. Hoddesdon lies just 4 miles south-east of the city of Hertford and 5 miles north of Waltham Cross. The town of Bishop’s Stortford is within 11 miles of Hoddesdon.

    During its peak in the 18th century, Hoddesdon could boast some 35 coaches per day travelling between London and Cambridge, and to the nearby towns.

    Coach travel was a dangerous business. At important junction points, highwaymen and bandits would often prey on travellers. During winter it was easy for snowdrifts to stop coaches from reaching their destination for days at a time, even though the distances involved where not that great. Coaches could overturn quite easily on muddy or icy roads, wheels and axles would break and shatter, leaving travellers stranded and exposed to the elements as well as robbers. There was no compensation paid to travellers, if they lost all their belongings en route.

    Just sitting for hours on end in close proximity to fellow passengers could endanger a person’s life in an age when antibiotics, penicillin and other modern medical wonders had not been discovered yet. There was no compensation paid to travellers if they contracted the small pox or tuberculosis, or  simply fell victim to lice and fleas.

    If somebody got on a coach today knowing he or she suffered from a dangerous disease that could infect others, that person would have to pay compensation to those infected. If your coach driver fell asleep and landed your coach in a ditch, you could make an injury claim in Hoddesdon and claim compensation from the driver and the coach operator.
