    Personal Injury Solicitors in Portsmouth

    Portsmouth is the second largest city in the ceremonial county of Hampshire. Portsmouth is notable for being the United Kingdom’s only island city; it is located mainly on Portsea Island. The Spinnaker Tower is a striking recent addition to the city’s skyline. It can be found in the redeveloped former HMS Vernon, formerly a shore establishment or ‘Stone Frigate’ of the Royal Navy, now an area of retail outlets, restaurants, clubs and bars known as Gunwharf Quays.

    In the Domesday Book there is no mention of Portsmouth. However, settlements that were later to form part of Portsmouth are listed. At this time it is estimated the Portsmouth area had a population not greater than two or three hundred.

    There are a great many more people in Portsmouth these days, as there are all over the country. Lots more people means lots mores accidents, which is why the law says the guilty party should compensate you if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault.
