Several annual events are well established: Leigh Regatta and The Leigh Folk Festival. The regatta is held over one weekend in September. It is organised by the three Sea Scout Groups based in the Old Town to raise funds for local Scouting and a nominated charity. Hopefully the scouts don’t have much need for an injury claim in Leigh-on-Sea specialist The coastal areas of Leigh-on-Sea include a nature reserve at Two Tree Island and a centrally-located beach.
The fishing and boat-building settlement of ‘Old Leigh’ is on the shipping route to London. Leigh-on-Sea grew to a prosperous port by the 16th Century. Ships as large as 340 tons were built for fishing and other purposes. By the 18th Century, ships had become larger and Leigh’s deep water channel silted up and the town diminished in importance. Reduced once more to a fishing village and servicing the London markets via the Thames and by road. The main seafood catch from Leigh Old Town has always been shell-fish and whitebait. Many of the fishing boats were bawleys, and these form part of the painting View at the mouth of the Thames. Two of the old town’s pubs, the Peter Boat and Ye Olde Smack, owe their names to two other kinds of local fishing boats, the peter boat and the smack.

With the pace of modern life, accidents are an unfortunate inevitability and sometimes they are just that: genuine accidents. In other cases, however, especially those where the victim suffers a long-term or permanent injury, someone is often at fault.
Have you been injured in a slip, trip or fall? This is one of the most common types of accidents, affecting large numbers of people across the UK every year. Accident Advice Helpline specialises in slips, trips and falls compensation and has helped thousands of people claim for injuries caused by these types of accidents.
Slips trips and falls claims
To make a slip trip ot fall claim you must have been injured in the last three years, and the accident must have been somebody else’s fault. If the slip trip or fall happened in a public place such as on an uneven pavement, the local council will have public liability insurance to cover any compensation claims. Slips, trips and falls in any public place will generally be covered by public liability insurance. We have specialist injury claim leigh-on-Sea solicitors to deal with each type of case.
If your accident happened whilst you were at work your employer is required by law to have employer liability insurance. This means that if you get injured at work you will be covered by this insurance. This also means that you will not be claiming against your employer, but rather the employer’s liability insurance company.
