Castle Ashby is an estate village in Northamptonshire, with its own stately home, Castle Ashby House. The building of Castle Ashby House began in 1574 and then continued, with the front façade being added by Inigo Jones in 1624. The original house was built in the shape of the letter E to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth I. At the front of the house, the sunken lawn began its life as a bowling green, although now it is used as a croquet lawn. As there are fewer than 150 residents in the village, it is unlikely that there would be a firm of compensation solicitors in Castle Ashby, and it is even less likely that there would be an experienced personal injury solicitor there.
Why would I need compensation solicitors in Castle Ashby?
Even in the most tranquil rural settings, accidents can and do occur. If you are involved in an accident that was not your fault, then our compensation solicitors in Castle Ashby would be able to discuss the possibility of your making a personal injury compensation claim and tell you if you have grounds for making such a claim. They could also help you build a case to demonstrate that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured.
Compensation solicitors in Castle Ashby could also help you make a claim for an illness or disease which you have been diagnosed with, if it can be proven that it was the result of another person’s negligence. You would have three years from the first time your doctor informed you that you had the illness in which to file a claim.
Injured on a farm?
If you are a farm worker, you will know the dangers involved in the agricultural sector. If you work with livestock, you will know that you have to be cautious when dealing with them, as although cows look docile, if spooked, they can be dangerous. When herding animals, you could easily be crushed against a gate or door and be trampled on. Cows can cause fatal injuries because they are so heavy. Deer, especially stags, can also be dangerous in the rutting season, and farmers have met with fatal injuries after being gored by these animals.
If you are in the arable farming sector there are hazardous chemicals in pesticides and fertilisers which can cause illness or injury, and of course, farm vehicles are also dangerous, as they can overturn and crush the driver. Sharp blades on threshing machine, for example, can sever a limb. If you have an accident on a farm, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.
