Leicester is a city, in the East Midlands, which, as its name suggests, is the county town of Leicestershire. It is situated on the banks of the River Soar at the edge of the National Forest. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it is listed as Ledecestre. The Romans were in the area, and their roads and baths are still in evidence in the city. They called their settlement Ratae Corieltauvorum which refers to the Celts who were in the area at the time, the Corieltauvori. The Roman settlement was on the Fosse Way, the road which linked Exeter to Lincoln.
In 2014 doubts were raised as to whether the skeleton found in a Leicester car park was actually that of Richard III, who was killed in the Battle of Bosworth, 1485, by the soldiers of Henry Tudor, who was crowned Henry VII. Leicester is proud of its history and certainly it has a long one. There were many soldiers killed in that battle, although their families would not have had recourse to the law and compensation in the 15th Century; there was no accident lawyer in Leicester at that time.
Looking for an Accident Lawyer in Leicester?
Today things have changed, and if you search through the local telephone directory or online you will probably find an accident lawyer in Leicester, although it may take you a considerable amount of time to find one who is suitable to represent you. That is because you need to find one who has the experience of filing personal injury compensation claims for people who have had the same type of accident or illness as you. Some accident lawyers specialise in road traffic accident claims, for example, while others specialise in filing claims for people who, unbeknownst to them, were working with asbestos and subsequently were diagnosed with asbestosis.
