How to find out if you might be entitled to make an injury claim in Brocton
Brocton is a village in Staffordshire. People often think that nothing happens in villages but in September 1896, a farmer found himself summoned before the Cannock Police Court. The farmer, Benjamin Merrick, was accused of being drunk and disorderly in charge of a horse and cart on August 20th 1896. P C Burgess proved the case and Mr Merrick was fined 20s and costs. In this day and age, being drunk and disorderly in charge of a horse and cart can sound a trifle amusing, however, if the horse had been startled and Mr Merrick could not control it, a serious accident could have followed. Mr Merrick would have found himself paying out more than 20s.
Others pay the consequences
Being drunk and disorderly in charge of a horse and cart is perhaps not quite as irresponsible as being in charge of a motor vehicle when inebriated. Unfortunately, it happens and others have to pay the consequences of one person’s negligence to their fellow humans. If you were driving along that same road as Mr Merrick drunkenly took his horse and cart and a drunk driver crashed into your car, you would probably be seriously injured. It is safe to assume that you might not be able to work for quite a period of time, in fact, if ever again. You might need to find out about putting in for an injury claim in Brocton.
