    Injury Lawyers in Mersea Island


    You may have never heard of Mersea Island, which is just off the Essex coast. It is accessible by road, so you can go there on foot or by car if the tides permit. The Strood is the causeway which joins Mersea Island to the mainland. You probably would have to go to Colchester to find an injury lawyer to represent you, as it is extremely unlikely that there would be a firm of injury lawyers in Mersea Island.

    What if there are no injury lawyers in Mersea Island?

    If you have a potential personal injury compensation claim to make, but can’t find injury lawyers in Mersea Island or elsewhere to help you, then you can contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for help and advice from experts.

    You may be looking for injury lawyers in Mersea Island or elsewhere because you have been involved in an accident in which you were injured and you can prove that it was caused by another person. You generally have three years in which to file a claim, although in some instances you only have two years. For confirmation of the time in which you have to claim call us at Accident Advice Helpline for the same information.

    You may also be looking for a firm of injury lawyers if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. You might have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, for example and you may be seeking to claim compensation from your employer. You have three years in which to file a claim such as this.

    Oysters and food poisoning

    Oysters are gathered on Mersea island, but perhaps people are becoming less inclined to eat these expensive molluscs these days, because of the bad press they have received. In the past we were warned not to eat oysters when there is no “r” in the month, but this rule was formulated long before refrigeration.

    Vibrio vulnificus is a bacteria which can be found in raw oysters and seafood and it can cause food poisoning. As, traditionally, we eat raw oysters, these may make us ill. Some restaurants in the UK have taken oysters off the menu because they would rather not have to pay compensation to customers who have food poisoning after eating oysters. However, there are stringent tests carried out on all seafood, so it should be relatively safe.
