Hastings now has a small fishing fleet that operates from its shores but for centuries was the largest beach based fishing fleet in England. Famous for the 1066 Battle of Hastings when William the Conqueror shot Harold, the last Saxon King, in the eye, it is a popular tourist destination and is home to several world champion events, such as chess.
After the Napoleonic Wars, Hastings became one of the most fashionable holiday resorts in Britain and expanded to cope with the influx of visitors and new residents. It eventually met with the much newer town of St. Leonards and their names are now often referred to together.
Like many towns that go back centuries, Hastings has what is referred to by locals as the old town and the new town. The old town has many historic building, a cable car up the cliff side and fishing huts along the beach.
The new town is where most of the hotels are, along with shopping centres and restaurants galore. It has many attractions for tourists as well as being close to many other south coast resorts that are also very popular.
Being a resident of Hastings does give immunity to accidents that some one else causes. These accidents happen all day every day no matter where you live.
They can range from minor incidents to major events and unfortunately some times end in deaths occurring.
UK law says that if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, the guilty party should pay you compensation for the suffering they have caused. There is a three year time limit for most situations, and providing you fit these rules, our solicitors will be able to help you obtain the recompense you are entitled to.
