Injury lawyers in Tonbridge
Tonbridge is a market town in the county of Kent. The town was recorded in the Domesday Book 1086 as Tonebrige, which may indicate a bridge belonging to the estate or manor (from the Old English ‘tun’), or alternatively a bridge belonging to Tunna, a common Anglo-Saxon man’s name.
However the name was arrived at, there would have been fatal accidents in 1086 just like there are now. The difference is that in those days they would not have been able to use injury lawyers in Tonbridge in order to make a fatal injury claim if the death was caused through someone else’s fault or negligence.
Deaths can happen in accidents at any time, and the results for the family can be devastating. On top of their sudden unexpected loss, there can be many other worries, not the least of them being their financial situation, particularly if the deceased was the main breadwinner of the household.
Our compassionate injury lawyers in Tonbridge will help with a fatal injury claim
Of course there are state benefits to help a family out until things are on a more even keel, but they are not enough to replace a wage and pay any liabilities they may have. If someone else caused the fatality, the answer is to make a personal injury claim against the guilty party. In most cases there will be insurance involved, and it will be the insurance company that settles the claim.
