Wickford was, in the Middle Ages, known under the names of Wiceford, Wikford, Wygeford, Wicfort and Wincfort, as referenced by the Domesday Book in the year 1086. Before the turn of the 20th century, Wickford was an agricultural village. At the time of the Domesday Survey, AD 1085, 6 land-holders were recorded. Historically there have been only two considerable estates in Wickford, The Manor of Wickford Hall (Robert Wikeford or de Wickford (1330-1390), Archbishop of Dublin, was born in Wickford and his family are thought to have been Lords of the Manor of Wickford Hall.) and The Manor of Stilemans.
With such a rich and varied history, it is little wonder that this small town is something of a tourist destination. This in itself can bring problems, because people that are new to an area are more likely to be involved in an accident.
If that accident was not their fault, then what recourse do they have? A local injury lawyer Wickford office may be able to help, but that would rather depend on the nature of the accident and whether or not the injury lawyer in Wickford was a specialist or not.
Accident Advice Helpline
Local offices, such as an injury lawyer in a Wickford office, may not have the same financial pull as a national company. This means that the more successful, specialised, solicitors may opt to work for a company that can provide them with the variety specialist cases that they may need, or require.
A national company, like Accident Advice Helpline, are more likely to attract the kinds of legal experts that a person involved in a no fault accident may need.
