Rochester is one of the Medway Towns in Kent, with strong associations with the English writer, Charles Dickens, who chronicled the lives of the poor in the 19th century. He wrote about the notorious mill owners who virtually treated their labourers as slaves, giving them abysmal working conditions. The factories and mills of that time were unhygienic and accidents occurred with regularity, although this didn’t deter the owner as factory fodder was easily available. There were no serious injury solicitors in Rochester or elsewhere, and no one who was poor would ever have been able to afford their services to file a personal injury compensation claim anyway.
Nowadays, of course things are different and you could probably locate a firm of serious injury solicitors in Rochester or one based elsewhere, to represent you on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. You could almost certainly find one through us at Accident Advice Helpline, as all of our team of expert injury solicitors work on this basis.
Looking for serious injury solicitors in Rochester?

Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence
In a town near Rochester in February 2014, a scare was started regarding the public swimming pool. It had been thought that there was a possibility that children could contract Legionnaire’s Disease from there as the Legionella bacteria had been discovered in some of the water systems at the pool, although not in the pool itself. The bacteria was discovered and dealt with and the local authority declared the pool safe to use after taking professional help and advice.
Usually Legionnaire’s Disease is contracted because the owner of a foreign hotel, for example, has not regularly maintained water or air-conditioning systems. This would mean that your illness was caused by negligence on the part of the owner of the hotel. Should you suffer from it after a package holiday abroad which you booked through a UK tour operator, you may be entitled to make a claim against the operator on your return to the UK as hotel owners abroad are representatives (in legal terms) of the UK tour operator.
