    Compensation claim in Goathland


    Where can you make a compensation claim in Goathland?

    Injury claims for non-fault accidents are handled by specialist solicitors, also called accident solicitors. If you live in a small village like Goathland, there may not be an accident solicitor. You’d have to call quite a few law firms in the nearest town or city to find a specialist willing to handle your particular injury claim on a no win no fee basis.

    But don’t worry, you can call Accident Advice Helpline and one of our solicitors can assist you with your claim. All of our solicitors offer no win no fee services, but you are under no obligation to proceed when you contact us. Calls are free on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and lines are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A friendly advisor can provide you with an estimate of how much you might win.

    Do you qualify for making a compensation claim in Goathland?

    It’s easy to find out if you have a valid claim. Go to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and complete our 30-second test. You’ll only be asked four easy questions:

    • Did you cause your accident, or was it caused by someone else?
    • Did you seek medical treatment following your accident?
    • Did your accident happen within the last three years?
    • Which part of your body was injured in the accident?

    If you have a valid claim, a compensation calculator will estimate how much money you might be entitled to.

    Dating back to the days of the Vikings, the village of Goathland is a popular tourist destination thanks to its picturesque setting within moorlands owned by the Duchy of Lancaster. The village is located by a spectacular waterfall and has attracted an even wider fanbase because it stood in for the fictional village of “Aidensfield,” a setting featuring in the hit TV series Heartbeat.

    Blessed therefore with many guesthouses, hotels and bed and breakfasts, the village welcomes many fans of the show who come in search of the “Aidensfield” they know and love. Many local buildings are quite recognisable as the main settings used in the show, such as the public house, the garage-cum-funeral home, the railway station and the various stores. Although the village was virtually recreated in the studio in later years of filming, early episodes were filmed in Goathland.

    Accidents can occur anywhere at any time, no matter how much we guard our safety. You can fall out of bed and break your neck, but you would not be able to make a compensation claim in Goathland for it unless somebody pushed you!

    However, if you joined a Heartbeat tour of the village and the tour guide’s negligence caused you to have an accident – for example, if the tour bus crashed or you were led too close to the waterfall and took a bad tumble – you could make a compensation claim in Goathland with an accident solicitor and stand a good chance of winning compensation.
