What if there’s a fatal injury and I need to make an injury claim in Stamford Hill
Stamford Hill is a district in north London in the borough of Hackney. It is home to Europe’s largest Hasidic Jewish and Adeni Jewish community.
By the 18th century, the road was subject to heavy traffic, including goods wagons pulled by six or more horses, and this caused the surface of the road to deteriorate. So you would imagine there were a lot of fatalities within this time.
