There are all kinds of things to do in Leicestershire; you can visit castles such as the one in Ashby de la Zouch, which was founded in the 12th Century and extended over the years; or perhaps you are a bit of a foodie, and would prefer to visit Melton Mowbray, home of the eponymous pork pie and Stilton cheese. There are historic market towns to visit, which still hold weekly markets where you can buy fresh, locally produced vegetables and other produce. You can visit towns such as Market Harborough, with its church of St Dionysius which was founded in 1300, and the old Grammar School next to it, dating from the early part of the 17th Century. There is also Market Bosworth, which gave its name to the Battle of Bosworth Field, which more or less ended the Wars of the Roses.
While you are roaming around Leicestershire, take care, as accidents can happen everywhere, even in the most rural of areas. You may find that you are in need of an accident lawyer in Leicestershire and it could be harder than you imagined to find one.
Why would I need an accident lawyer in Leicestershire?
There are two main reasons why you may require the services of an accident lawyer in Leicestershire. The most obvious is that you have been injured in some kind of accident which you can prove was not your fault. An accident lawyer in Leicestershire could help you prove that the accident was the result of another person’s negligence or recklessness.
The second reason for needing an accident lawyer in Leicestershire is that you have been diagnosed with an illness (perhaps a work-related one) which can be proven to have been caused by another person’s negligence.
An illness caused by someone else?
You might think that this is a strange concept, but consider, for example, a case of food poisoning after having a meal at a restaurant. Another possible illness of this sort could be a work-related one which was caused by negligence on the part of your employer. In fact there are several types of illnesses which could fall into this category.
You have three years to file a claim for such an illness from the date you were first diagnosed with it. However, the sooner you begin the claim process the better, as a claim might take years rather than months to be settled.
