Orford is a Suffolk village, on the banks of the River Ore, which was in existence before the 12th century when Henry II had one of his castles built there. (The name Orford means a crossing place of the Ore.) The church of St Bartholomew is thought to be from the same period. These buildings served as landmarks for sailors to guide their vessels into Orford. You can still buy fresh fish and seafood landed by local fishermen and sample the smoked fish, ham, cheese and game produced locally. The area around Orford is given over mainly to agriculture and so there are many fresh vegetables and fruit to be had in season.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Orford?
Don’t think that people can only get a whiplash injury in Orford in a collision between two vehicles; you can have one in any type of accident if your head moves rapidly in opposite directions. You might have been carrying a crate of fish on the quay, missed your footing and fell damaging the tendons of your neck as you did so. For this kind of accident, you would be unlikely to be able to make a personal injury compensation claim because you have to be able to prove that the accident in which you got your whiplash injury in Orford (or any other injury in another place in the UK) was not your fault.

Claiming for an illness
Did you realise that apart from being able to make a claim for injuries sustained in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, you can also make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which can be proven to have been caused by another person’s negligence?
You might now be wondering what kind of illness could possibly be caused by someone else, but consider a work-related one, which you and your personal injury lawyer could prove was the result of your employer’s negligence towards you.
Perhaps you had food poisoning after eating at a restaurant, in which case (as long as you had to have medical treatment for it) you might also be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner because the kitchen staff had been negligent while preparing your meal.
