The process of searching for a personal injury lawyer in Chigwell often comes at the end of an upsetting and painful experience. It can be fascinating to look at the personal injury process in reverse and analyse the circumstances that led up to that moment. It can help us to understand how personal injury claims come to happen in the first place and why so many people find themselves searching for a personal injury lawyer in Chigwell when that was the last thing that they were expecting to do. Let’s use a typical car accident to demonstrate this.
The hunt for a personal injury lawyer in Chigwell – the journey
Mrs D set off on what she thought would be a typical journey to work, not thinking for one moment that she would end the day hunting for a personal injury lawyer in Chigwell. She dropped off her two young children at a local Chigwell school and then got back in her car to start the short journey to her office. The road and weather conditions were good, in fact it was a bright sunny morning. The traffic was a little heavy – typical for that time of day in Chigwell.
Meanwhile, a few miles away, Mrs X was leaving for work. She was late leaving the house because she had lost her car keys and was now likely to be late for work. She had an important meeting that she had to attend but instead of telephoning ahead and letting them know that she was running behind she decided to try and make it on time and to call them on the way if she was further delayed, taking a short cut through some side streets. As she was driving she received a phone call and looked down to reach for her phone at the same time as pulling out at a junction.
This was at the exact moment that Mrs D was also travelling down the road but Mrs X was not paying attention, was pulling out of a junction without looking properly and was speeding. Mrs X’s car collided with Mrs D’s car and both vehicles came to a very abrupt halt.

Several witnesses saw the accident and could confirm that it was the fault of Mrs X. The police also happened to be at the scene and helped to divert the traffic around the cars whilst the paperwork was sorted out. Mrs D collected witness contact details and took some photographs. She called her husband who came and took her to the local Accident and Emergency Department where she was diagnosed with whiplash. She knew that she would be able to make a personal injury claim and she knew that she would have to start searching for a personal injury lawyer in Chigwell – she just didn’t know where to start.
