You have probably heard of Pershore in Worcestershire as it has given its name to several varieties of plum. It holds an annual Plum Festival in August to celebrate the fruit. You may have visited Pershore, or passed through it en route to Worcester, and been charmed at the elegant Georgian buildings and the magnificent Abbey. Pershore has an olde-worlde charm, but even there, accidents happen. You may be looking for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Pershore right now, perhaps because you have been injured in an accident which you, with their help, could prove was not your fault.
Expert injury solicitors in Pershore
If you were injured in an accident that you can prove was the fault of another person, you probably have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if the accident occurred in the British Isles. However if it happened at an airport in most countries in the world (to make a claim, the country would have to be a signatory of the Montreal Convention), at sea or in the air, you would only have two years to file a claim for your injuries.
If you are unsure how long you actually have to file your potential injury claim, contact expert injury solicitors in Pershore, or ones based elsewhere in the country, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out. You can call us on one of our freephone numbers given below at any time.
You may also be looking for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Pershore if you have, or have had, an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to file your claim.
Accidents on farms
If you visit Pershore, you might go to a farm to pick your own fruit, plums or pears perhaps. Don’t allow children to claim trees, or to play close to farm vehicles. Farms are dangerous places for the public as well as for farmers and their employees.
The agricultural sector reports more accidents than others, just over one in a hundred workers work in this sector, but it reports about one in five fatal accidents and injuries.
The most common accidents on farms are those involving farm vehicles, with tractors sometimes overturning and crushing their drivers. Children should not be allowed in tractor cabs with drivers. Other common accidents happen when people are struck by an object, such as a bale, falling from a great height.
