Injury Lawyers in Pudsey
Pudsey is a market town in West Yorkshire. The place-name Pudsey is first recorded in the Domesday Book as Podechesaie and Podechesai, in 1086. Its etymology is rather uncertain: it seems most likely to derive from a putative personal name *Pudoc and the word ēg meaning ‘island’ but here presumably referring metaphorically to an ‘island’ of good ground in moorland.
Of course, most of us will recognise the name from Pudsey Bear, the mascot for Children In Need, which every year raises millions of pounds for childrens charities and projects in the UK. The bear got his name from Joanna Ball, a BBC graphic designer who named him after the village she was born in.
Unfortunately, the residents of Pudsey, just like residents all over the country, are not immune to being injured in a road traffic accident that was not their fault, and if this happens to you, you should consider using injury lawyers in Pudsey to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Lack of Concentration is Often the Cause
