    Injury solicitors in Sanderstead


    If you’ve had an accident at work, you may need injury solicitors in Sanderstead

    Sanderstead is a village on the edge of Greater London. There’s an old saying which states that we shouldn’t cry over spilled milk; unfortunately when you’ve been in an accident which wasn’t your fault, it seems difficult not to keep wondering why it happened to you. You consider how things would be different if you had gone to work half an hour later or better still had simply stayed at home that day. Unfortunately, you can’t change what has happened, the good news is that you may be able to claim compensation with injury solicitors in Sanderstead if you have had an accident in the workplace because your employer did not follow Health and Safety rules. You should telephone Accident Advice Helpline to find out more.

    They carried everything on their backs

    In the meantime, take consolation that you were not a lamplighter in London in the early 19th century. The lamplighter’s filled their small barrels at oilmen’s shops. They had to carry all their equipment on their backs so once they had filled up, they would get on their way carrying a barrel of oil, a small ladder and a jug. The jug was used to transfer the oil from the barrel to the lamp. They would have to move rapidly to get all the lamps lit in the short time from dusk to darkness. Of course, it would all have to be done again but in reverse in the mornings.

    In order to light a lamp they would rest the ladders against the iron arms of the lamp post. They would then climb to the top of the ladders and lift the top of the lamp off. Since there was no place to put it while they lit the lamp, they had to rest it on their heads. They would then remove the scissors from their apron to trim the lamp’s wick. After which they would refill the reservoir with oil, light the wick and then replace the lamp. After that, they would rush to the next lamp and start again.
