You may have seen the carved white horse figure on Pewsey Hill, which is one of the smaller ones in Wiltshire, and you may also have visited Pewsey to join in the Carnival which is held over two weeks during mid to late September. This is a tradition which began in 1898. There is also the Feaste Ball, held every two years, which has its origins in the 9th century, after (so legend has it) the safe return from war of the King of Wessex, who owned much of the land in the Pewsey Vale.
Pewsey museum is interesting if you are interested in the Victorian industrial age, and this will reopen after renovations are completed in April 2014. It is housed in the former foundry of Whatley and Hosier, built in 1873. Conditions in foundries have improved since that time, but there are still certain illnesses and diseases associated with working in these places. In those times, of course, you would not have been able to find expert injury solicitors in Pewsey, or ones anywhere else if you wanted to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.
Why would I need expert injury solicitors in Pewsey?
If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, you may be searching for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Pewsey, or ones based elsewhere in the country. You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, such as silicosis, which you might have contracted if you work in a foundry, pottery, or construction industry, for example. Your employer now has a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of workers, and should provide you with a safe working environment. If there are possible health dangers involved in your work you should be issued with appropriate protective gear and equipment. You should also be trained adequately to do your work in safety with minimum risk to your health. You have three years from the first diagnosis of an illness in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
Injuries and accidents
You may also be looking for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Pewsey, or ones based close to where you live, if you have been injured in an accident and you can prove that you were not to blame for it. You usually have three years in which to make a claim, but in some cases, you only have two, so you should check with a firm of injury solicitors or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you actually have.
