    Claiming compensation in Hamble


    How to find out more about claiming compensation in Hamble

    Hamble is a village in Eastleigh in Hampshire. Its official name is Hamble-le-Rice. The spelling of the village name has changed over the centuries. Going back as far as 730, it was known as Hamelea. In 1496 it was referred to as Hammel, and in 1846 it was Ham-en-le-Rice.

    Many old wells have been found in Hamble, so it will always have been a source of fresh water supplies for the village. The fine mud on the river bed provided a breeding ground for oysters and it was good for laying up wooden boats. Also, being on the river, it would be easy to use the river to transport goods and get about. Artefacts found around the village suggest that it has been a dwelling place for a long time. Neolithic tools have been found in Satchell Lane and there is an ancient barrow on the common. A cache of early 4th century bronze coins from other countries have also been found, which suggests that the villagers traded with people from abroad.

    You swallow a lot of water

    So as well as being a picturesque place, Hamble is also an interesting place to visit. In fact, during the summer it gets quite packed as people watch the yachts. Imagine if you had booked a holiday there and whilst you were watching the yachts, a group of people who were having a lark pushed you into the water by mistake. You can’t swim, so you swallow water and almost drown. Your holiday would be ruined and the shock could put you out of action for weeks. You might want to find out about claiming compensation in Hamble.

    After you have had medical treatment, you should telephone Accident Advice Helpline, who are providers for personal injury compensation. A trained adviser will guide you through a 30-second test which will indicate whether you are likely to get compensation with an injury claim.
