Tendring isn’t the name of a town or village – instead, it’s the name of a government district which forms part of Essex. It takes up much of the north-eastern corner of the county, and includes many seaside locations given the territory it covers. Around 140,000 people were found to live there according to estimates taken in 2014. Very few of those individuals will have had cause to make an injury claim in Tendring for any reason.
Injury claims tend to be put forward following an accident. That accident could pertain to a wide variety of situations in which injuries were suffered. For a claim to be considered, there should be evidence that another party was negligent. This could have occurred in a variety of ways.
Accidents and injuries
Not all injuries are caused by other people. If you were running across a polished floor and you ignored signs warning you it was wet, you probably wouldn’t be able to claim anything for the injuries you suffered by slipping over. However, if there were no such signs on a wet floor – whether it was at work, in a gym or any other public place – you may have a case after all.
Some instances where injuries do occur are easier to assess than others with regard to considering compensation. Conversely, some are much more challenging to look into. If the injured person has no memory of what happened, a personal injury lawyer will need to look into the circumstances and gain statements from witnesses to help find out whether compensation might be due.
