Rothley, a small village in Leicestershire is the most expensive place to live in the East Midlands, according to the Sunday Times. It was once a base for the Knights Templar, who could be seen as the first travel agents, as they undertook to safeguard pilgrim to Jerusalem, and also took care of travel arrangements and financial concerns of the pilgrims. Many people in the Middle Ages wanted to touch the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem before they died. Rothley can also boast a Roman villa and is steeped in history, but you probably couldn’t find a firm of accident injury solicitors in Rothley in the village.
Why look for accident injury solicitors in Rothley?
You may require the services of accident injury solicitors in Rothley if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You normally have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident for which you were not responsible, if it occurred in the UK. However, there are some accidents and resulting injuries for which you have a shorter time period in which to make a claim. If you don’t know how long you have to file your particular claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers below. Of course, you can also obtain this information by contacting a firm of injury solicitors based close to your home.
You may also be searching for a firm of accident injury solicitors in Rothley, or others based elsewhere, because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused because of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to claim for such an illness.
Claiming for an illness or accident abroad
If you have booked a foreign package holiday with a UK tour operator, you may be able to make a claim for an illness, such as food poisoning, which you got as a result of eating at your hotel. You may also be able to claim for injuries sustained in an accident which occurred at the hotel or in its grounds.
The hotel staff, the owner, and your holiday representative are all representatives of the UK tour operator, so if you can prove that the negligence of these people caused your illness or accident, then, on your return to the UK, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the UK tour operator.
