    Best Solicitors in Broadhembury


    Broadhembury in Devon is full of cob-and-thatch cottages, and walking down its streets makes you feel that you’ve stepped back in time. Broadhembury dates back to at least the 1200s, although the cottage you can see today are mainly from the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Perhaps the oldest house in the village is what is thought to have been the old priest’s house which is now next to the village school.

    Broadhembury is in the Blackdown Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is an Iron Age hill fort (Hembury, from whence the village takes its name) close to Broadhembury, which is at least 5,000 years old, and this was also used later by the Romans when they came to the area.

    If you were visiting and happened to be walking past a quaint cottage when a hanging basket hit you on the head, you could be forgiven for seeking personal injury compensation from the person it belonged to.

    If you have any type of accident in the street, you should inform the police and have your injury treated immediately. You will need a police report and a medical one if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim later. Solicitors in Broadhembury, or ones based elsewhere, would also need a copy of these documents if they are to take on your case.

    Best Solicitors in Broadhembury, if there were some active, could help residents file personal injury compensation claims if they had been diagnosed with an illness that they could prove was the result of another person’s negligence.

    Compensation claims for injuries and illnesses

    You must be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured in order to be eligible to file a claim.

    You should call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers to find out how long you have to make your claim, as different accidents and injuries have different time periods in which you must claim, although usually, if the accident occurred in the UK, you have three years to make a claim for your injuries.

    If you have, or have had, an illness which was caused by someone else’s negligence, you have three years to file your claim, although the sooner you begin the claims process, the better.
