Ipswich is Suffolk town located on the banks of the estuary of the River Orwell. There is evidence to show that the area has been inhabited since pre-historic times and the Romans built a fort there. In mediaeval times the name of the town was Gippeswic a name that may come from the Anglo-Saxon, ‘gip’ meaning the corner of the mouth, which describes its geographical location on the estuary; ‘wic’ means bay or inlet. Scandinavian invaders founded the town in the 7th century AD. The town was a centre of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages, with pilgrims visiting the shrine of our Lady of Grace. In his Canterbury Tales, Chaucer satirises the wealthy merchants of Ipswich. He himself had roots in Ipswich and came from a family of wealthy merchants.
In Chaucer’s day, pilgrims to Ipswich might have been injured in accidents on the way to the shrine, but in those days there were no personal injury compensation claims to file and there wouldn’t have been an accident solicitor in Ipswich. Now of course, things are different.
Do you need an Accident Solicitor in Ipswich?
If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was no fault of yours, you could be looking for an accident solicitor in Ipswich to help you file a claim for your injuries. You will almost certainly need one to help you prove that another person was responsible for your accident.
The problem in finding an accident solicitor in Ipswich (or elsewhere) is that they specialise in just one or two types of accident and claims arising from them. You may have to call several firms of solicitors in order to locate a suitable one to take on your case. You may not have the stamina to do this if you are still recovering from your injuries, so perhaps you should consider giving us a ring at Accident Advice Helpline. We probably have just the specialist accident solicitor you need on our team of experts who all work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. One call to us could save you a lot of time and considerable effort.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If your accident occurred in this country, you usually have three years from its date to make your claim. However, this may not be true in the case of your potential personal injury compensation claim, as some accidents and injuries need to be claimed for in a shorter period of time. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your particular claim.
