The village of Gilsland is located in the North of England, some 29 km east of Carlisle and approximately 32 km west of Hexham. Situated on the borders of Cumbria and Northumberland, the village boasts as its star tourist attraction Hadrian’s Wall and the sheer number of visitors coming to the area to tour the length of the Roman wall has made it necessary to provide a visitors’ centre.
The area was already under human occupation in the Bronze Age, and there have been various finds of artefacts from both the Bronze and Iron Age. Hadrian Wall dates back to the 2nd century AD and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
While Roman legionnaires undoubtedly suffered accidents when they built Hadrian’s Wall, they would have merely had their helmets dented, if they had dared to complain to their supervising centurion about their pain and suffering. A 2nd century AD Roman stone mason accidentally hitting somebody else’s thumb would not have expected to receive a message from an accident solicitor in Gilsland informing him of a personal injury claim; however, the stone mason would probably have trembled at the sight of an angry Roman soldier sucking his throbbing thumb.
Thankfully, a lot has changed since those heady Hadrian days of unbridled building and conquering. If you fell down the stairs in your Gilsland B&B because the landlord had not fixed a tear in the carpet outside your room, you could claim compensation with an accident solicitor in Gilsland. If a modern day contractor accidentally hit your thumb with a hammer, he or she would tremble at the sight of a letter from your accident solicitor!
If the local haulage operator ploughed his truck into your vehicle at a crossing, because the driver was exhausted and half asleep, you could claim compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, loss of income during recovery and any expenses you were forced to pay as a result of your accident.
