Accident Advice Helpline has a successful history dealing with event claims in Lewes
Lewes is in East Sussex and is its county town, with a castle which was founded in the 11th Century and Wealdon Hall House, also known as Anne of Cleves House because it was given to her by Henry VIII as part of her divorce settlement. Other historic buildings in Lewes are Bull House, once the residence of Tom Paine who wrote the Rights of Man in 1791, as well as other philosophical and political works, the ruins of Lewes Priory and the 15th Century bookshop. In the 16th Century seventeen people were burnt at the stake (during what is called the Marian Persecutions) in front of what was the Star Inn, now Lewes’ Town Hall. This event is commemorated annually with the bonfire in Lewes, held on Guy Fawkes Night, the 5th of November. Have you been to a local event and been injured? We can help you make event claims in Lewes if you were not to blame.
Need an Accident Lawyer in Lewes?
Bonfire celebrations can result in accidents, even when they are well-organised. In 2011, 170 people in Lewes were treated by ambulance crews during the bonfire celebrations when approximately 60,000 people turned out for the celebrations. There are seven historic bonfire societies in Lewes which raise money for the event all year round, although only six take part in the 5th of November celebrations, with the other society holding its event before that date.
If you were at an organised bonfire event and were injured because of the negligence of those in charge, you may be looking for an accident lawyer to help you file a claim for your injuries.
An accident lawyer will have experience in dealing with injury claims for clients who have been in a certain type of accident. For example, if you were injured at a firework event, you would need the help of an accident lawyer who specialises in filing claims for people who have sustained injuries in an accident in a public place.
Can I claim for an injury
You may be eligible to make a claim for an injury sustained in an accident if you can prove that another person and not you were responsible for it. You usually have three years form its date to make your claim, but you may have to file your claim in a shorter period of time. To find out more, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
