Injury Lawyers in Hockley Heath


Hockley Heath in the West Midlands sits on the Stratford-upon-Avon canal, and has its own wharf, the Hockley Heath Wharf. The Stratford-upon-Avon canal was constructed between 1793 and 1816, and joins up with the Grand Union Canal which runs all the way down to Brentford and the River Thames.

These dates between 1793 and 1816 were in the early to middle stages of the Industrial Revolution, and before the astonishing revelation of Robert Stephenson‘s steam-locomotive, The Rocket, launched on the world in 1829.  It’s hard to imagine the effect this concept of water-based transport had on the population of the day. Picture tranquil green countryside, unbroken rolling hills, and badly-maintained roads that were hardly more than dirt tracks, pot-holed and rutted by stage-coach wheels. The canals were a transformation in commercial transport methods, ferrying coal and iron to the newly industrialised Midlands and North, the steel and cotton mills, and ferrying finished goods away again. The impact on contemporary society must have been akin to what the proposed high-speed rail links could be on today’s rural communities, should it go ahead. 

Injury Lawyers in Hockley Heath

These days, most of the traffic that potters up and down the canal system is made up of tourist boats; and a lovely tranquil holiday it is too, on a colourful, traditional canal boat, watching the fisherman watching their lines. The worst that could happen is bumping into another boat, or falling over the side, and if it was your own fault, then you would have nobody to blame but yourself. But if you had an accident on the water caused by somebody else and you suffered injuries due to someone else’s actions or negligence, then you might be looking for injury lawyers in Hockley Heath. Most people who think they want to start a claim haven’t done it before, and don’t quite know where to start, so what does a person do who doesn’t know the ropes?
