About Rochford and making compensation claims
Rochford is a town and district within the ceremonial county of Essex, in the south and east of England. The town is situated about 43 miles (69 km) from Central London and approximately 21 miles (34 km) from the Essex county town, Chelmsford.
The history behind the name ‘Rochford’
Rochford’s name comes from the Old English word Rochefort which can be translated as meaning ‘Ford of the Hunting Dogs’ and does not in fact derive from the settlement being the location of a fording point over the River Roach.
In fact, at the time that the town is thought to have been established, the River in the region was called the Walfleet and only gained the moniker ‘Roach’ as a back formation, whereby people assumed that the town was named for River and began referring to the river in kind.
This probably seems like a rather complex and confusing issue. But that is also what a lot of people think about personal injury compensation and the role of solicitors Rochford residents.
Fortunately however, the remainder of this article will clear this up by letting you know when and why you may need solicitors in Rochford, how long you may have to make a claim, and who can be trusted to handle your claim.
When and why you might need compensation solicitors in Rochford
It is with the handling of personal injury claims that you would require the assistance of personal injury solicitors Rochford residents, so you must first understand when the entitlement to make this sort of claim actually exists.
According to the UK legal system, this is when somebody has been injured and it was definitively the fault of another party, with the compensation award being aimed at providing financial recompense for the physical, emotional and or financial difficulties that the victim has endured.
How long do you have to claim?
For many types of claim, the victim of an injury must begin claims proceedings within three years of the incident in question.
After this time has passed however then their ability to claim also elapses.
This is not always applied however, to cases which deal with an injury suffered by a minor, or to claims in regards to industrial diseases like asbestos poisoning.
