Chelsea is one of London’s most fashionable and affluent districts, and hosts the annual Chelsea Flower Show in May. One of Chelsea’s former names was Chelchith, which means ‘cold landing place.’ Today, it is one of the best places to shop in the capital, great for shopaholics with plenty of disposable income.

Another reason for seeking a firm of personal injury solicitors in Chelsea is that you have been told you have an illness which has been caused by another person’s negligence.

Accident while shopping?
Although shopping is seen as a form of therapy by some, accidents can occur while on a shopping expedition. You might catch sight of a must-have item in a shop window and walk into a lamppost, for example. Unfortunately, this accident would have occurred because of your own negligence, so you would not be able to make a claim for your broken nose. However, if you tripped over a broken paving slab, you could probably claim personal injury compensation from the local authority, which has a duty to repair streets and roads and keep them in a good condition.
If you have an accident in the street you should inform the police, who in turn should write a report and inform the local authority. You may be able to take photographs of the scene of the accident, which could be used as supporting evidence in a later claim. At the time of the accident, you should call an ambulance and seek medical treatment for your injuries.
