    How to get an accident solicitor in Cockerham

    Cockerham is a small village in Lancashire. It is 6 miles south of Lancaster and 15 miles north north-west of Preston. It is a good place to base yourself whilst having a break in the north west as there are plenty of hotels and also caravans to choose from. If you have a car accident whilst travelling to the historic city of Lancaster you might find that you need an accident solicitor in Cockerham.

    If you are suffering from a personal injury through no fault of your own which has taken place within the last three years, you could be able to claim compensation. Accident Advice Helpline was set up in 2000 to help people in situations of this nature. A quick telephone call will establish whether you have a valid claim. To do this, the trained adviser will give you a simple 30 second test. If this proves to be the case then the adviser can work out an estimate of what your claim could be worth if an accident solicitor in Cockerham takes your case on.

    This will be on a no win no fee* basis. There is no obligation to go ahead, you decide if you want to start your claim. The telephone number is 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile 0333 500 0993.

    Meanwhile, if your accident means that you can’t move about, you could become constipated. It is bad enough when an accident turns your life upside down but being constipated as well is definitely adding insult to injury.

    What is constipation?

    • Constipation is opening the bowels less than 3 times a week.
    • If you need to strain to open your bowels on more than 25% of occasions, you are constipated.
    • If your stools are hard or pellet like on more than 25% of occasions, you are constipated.
    • There are many reasons for constipation and sometimes it can be more than one factor coming into play.
    • Not eating enough fibre such as fruit, vegetable and cereal.
    • A change in your normal eating habits; for instance when we go on holiday and have a change of diet.
    • Ignoring the urge to pass stools.  This can often happen when we are injured as we have to wait for another person to help us to the toilet.
    • When we are injured, we are often taking lots of pain killers and other forms of medication.  Unfortunately, the side effects of some of these tablets cause constipation.
    • Not drinking enough fluids.
    • Anxiety or depression.
    • Lack of exercise.

    How can I overcome it?

    • First of all, start drinking 8 glasses of water a day.  When we are dehydrated it makes our stools become hard and difficult to pass.
    • Try to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetable plus wholemeal cereal.
    • If your injury allows it, try to get some form of regular exercise.
    • If you are still constipated after correcting your fluid level, diet and exercise routine, think about consulting your G.P. as constipation can affect how you feel.
