Billericay in Essex was made famous when Ian Drury and the Blockheads sang the song entitled Billericay Dickie, supposedly the name of a brick-layer who was a braggart. It was also supposedly the place where the Pilgrim Fathers met to discuss their voyage to the New World. Although the first four pilgrims from Billericay died shortly after landing in America, others followed undeterred, and established the town of Bellerica in Massachusetts in 1655.
The Mayflower Morris men still dance and perform the mummers’ play St. George and the Dragon every year on the Saturday nearest to St. George’s Day, (April 23rd), so you may have visited Billericay to see them perform. If you did, you may have met with an unfortunate accident in the street and had to have medical treatment. If you can prove that the accident was not your fault, but the fault of another person, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Accidents at sea
The early Pilgrim Fathers risked their lives to get to the New World and their loved ones would not have been able to make any personal injury compensation claims if they died in an accident at sea that was caused by the negligence of the crew, the captain, or the ship’s owner. Nowadays, if you have an accident at sea that was the result of another person’s negligence, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries if you claim within two years of the date of the accident.
