Brook Green, as its name suggests, has a brook, piped sometime in the 1800’s, which runs under the Brook Green Hotel. It is a rather affluent area of west London, with one of its borders shared with Kensington. It has a park which is also called Brook Green and it was mentioned in 15th century documents, so it has a long history. Brook Green holds an annual festival of books and residents support the literacy charity Beanstalk. There is a café on Blythe Road where, residents might be surprised to learn, on the floor above, W.B. Yeats and assorted others met to make magic. Yeats was involved with the Hermetic Society of the Golden Dawn, which was founded above George’s Café in 1888. The order is steeped in western traditions and owes much to the 17th century Rosicrucian order.
Solicitors Brook Green
If you were outside the café in Brook Green and met with an accident, you could hardly expect a firm of solicitors in Brook Green to help you file a personal injury compensation claim because your accident had been caused because of someone dabbling in the occult. To make a successful injury claim, you have to be able to prove conclusively that the accident was not your fault. Blaming a group which practises magic would not suffice. Proof is the crucial factor to filing a successful personal injury compensation claim.
Similarly you may be entitled to file a claim for an illness as long as you can prove it was the result of another person’s negligence, with the help of solicitors in Brook Green.
Illnesses caused by negligence of another person
At first you might wonder how an illness could be caused by another person’s negligence, but consider a work-related illness, or even, perhaps, food poisoning. If you have been diagnosed with a respiratory disease, for example, it could be that you regularly work with stones which contain a high level of silica. The dust particles you inhale (respirable crystalline silica or RCSs) can build up in your lungs over time and you may develop silicosis or even lung cancer. If your employer did not follow the Health and Safety Executive’s guidelines on safety procedures when working with silica, you may be able to file a claim against him or her because his or her negligence caused your illness.
