    Accident Lawyer in Mendip


    Mendip is the name given to a local government district in Somerset, named after the Mendip Hills (or Mendips). The area stretches from the Mendips themselves to the Somerset Levels, with Glastonbury probably being the most famous town in the district with its associations with the Arthurian legends and its spiritual connections. It is reputed to have been the birthplace of King Arthur, and was probably a sacred site long before the birth of Christ. The patterns encircling Glastonbury Tor are said to have been a maze with spiritual significance, but as this was made more than 5,000 years ago, this is merely speculation. Around 2,000 years ago there was a large lake under the Tor called Ynys-witrin, or Lake of Glass, and some believe that the isle in this lake was that of Avalon.

    Do you need an accident lawyer in Mendip?

    If you travelled to Glastonbury for the annual Glastonbury Festival, you might have met with an accident either on the way to it, at the festival, or on your way home, and so perhaps you are looking for an accident lawyer in Mendip. You might have slipped in the usual mud at the festival site and broken a limb, but this would probably not give you grounds for making a personal injury claim against the owner of the site – it is known to be muddy there.

    An accident lawyer in Mendip can help you file a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. You also need to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident.

    Another reason for needing an accident lawyer in Mendip is that you have been told by your doctor that you have an illness or disease which can be proven to have been caused by another person’s negligence towards you.

    Illnesses caused by negligence

    At first, you might wonder what kind of illnesses could be caused by someone else, but consider the case of a work-related illness or occupational disease. While you are at work, your employer is responsible for both your health and safety. If you become ill because of the nature of your work, you may be eligible to make a claim against your employer. You would need an accident lawyer in Mendip, for example, to help you prove that their negligence was responsible for your illness.
