Hartfield is a small village in East Sussex, famous for being the home of writer A. A. Milne author of the Winnie the Pooh stories. Loveable bear Pooh belonged to a young boy, Christopher Robin. Pooh had a collection of friends, including Eye-ore the morose donkey, Kanga and Roo, and Piglet. Pooh and his friends represented a quintessential English view on life, vividly realised in the drawings of E.H. Shephard. Disney acquired the rights and the Winnie the Pooh films became even more famous than the books.
In the 1920s when Winnie burst upon the children’s literary scene, kids of the day were happy to play “racing twigs under the bridge“, known as Poohsticks. (Minimum 2 players). You played by dropping your twig from the bridge, on the upstream side, dash to the downstream side, and the player whose twig emerges first is the winner. Gripping stuff, but perhaps lacking the immediacy of today’s bright and superfast fantasy online games to which today’s kids are addicted. If in your excitement you lost your balance and you toppled over the old stone wall into the tinkling stream below, you could possibly suffer cuts and bruises to body and ego and it would be nobody’s fault but your own.
Injury Lawyers in Hartfield
A non-fault accident is different and any victim who suffered injuries as a consequence – which is just a bit of jargon for saying you had an accident and it wasn’t your fault – could be entitled to claim compensation. Personal injury compensation claims apply to many circumstances, such as:
Accidents at work
Illnesses or ill-health conditions developed over time at work, because of the work or working environment
Road traffic accidents for any road user
Other kinds of accidents, for example, on holiday, at sea, at sporting events
Whatever kind of accident you have suffered, if you think a third party was to blame, and was responsible for your health and safety but had been negligent, then you could be looking for advice from injury lawyers in Hartfield. Hartfield is a small village, so you may have to widen the search to find the right legal expert to advise you, or you can talk to us.
