Lincolnshire was at one time called Lindsey, and this is how it is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. Parts of Lincolnshire are on the coast and include the fishing port of Grimsby, and the tourist resort of Skegness. However, most of Lincolnshire is rural with a more leisurely pace of life than some other areas of England. Its culinary delights include Lincolnshire sausages which are made with different ‘secret’ ingredients by various pork butchers, and Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese, which has won several awards. Plum bread is also a traditional foodstuff, as is Grantham gingerbread, which is a hard, white (rather than brown) ginger biscuit.
Do you need an Accident Lawyer in Lincolnshire?
In November 2014 two men had a narrow squeak and escaped death when a light aircraft crashed into a bungalow on a farm in Lincolnshire. Luckily the owner escaped unscathed, although the pilot and another man were treated for their injuries. The owner of the property pushed another man out of the way, which was extremely lucky. You don’t expect a light aircraft to come crashing into your home, so quick-thinking is necessary if it does happen. Clearly the people on the ground could not have been responsible for the accident, and investigators are trying to work out what exactly caused it.
Accidents like this do not happen every day, but if you have been injured in any type of accident, in order to make a personal injury compensation claim, you would need an accident lawyer in Lincolnshire to prove that it was not your fault. Your accident lawyer in Lincolnshire would also have to prove that the accident was the responsibility of another person (rather than a wild animal, for example).
Accidents and claims
Generally you have three years to file a claim for injuries sustained in an accident that occurred in this country, but as you sometimes have much less time, you should find out how long you actually have by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline or contact an accident lawyer in Lincolnshire.
If your accident occurred at sea, in the air, or at almost any airport in the world (the country must be a signatory to the Montreal Convention), then you only have two years from the date of the accident in which to file a claim.
