You may have visited Ludlow to see the 11th century castle, or to admire the 600 year-old buildings which you can still find in the streets there. You may have gone to a food festival in Ludlow, which was the first UK town to join the Slow Food movement. Perhaps you went there to buy animals at the cattle market, or because you are interested in the history of the Marches. Of course, there is also a racecourse in Ludlow, so you might be a frequent visitor to the town.
You may be a resident of Ludlow and at this very moment you could be trying to locate a firm of injury lawyers in Ludlow in order to file a personal injury compensation claim.
Injury lawyers in Ludlow
You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident and you and your injury lawyers in Ludlow, for example, can prove that it was not your fault.
Another reason for filing a personal injury compensation claim is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury lawyers in Ludlow, or ones based elsewhere in the UK, can prove was contracted because of another person’s negligence.
You usually have three years in which to make a claim, although there are some accidents and injuries which you must claim for within two years. To find out how long you have to file your claim, contact a firm of injury lawyers in Ludlow or ones close to where you live, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline for this, or other information about the claims process.
If you are a farmer or a farm labourer then you know how dangerous it can be to work on a farm. The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) figures show that:-
“In the ten-year period from 1999/2000 to 2008/09 a total of 436 people have been killed as a result of agricultural work activities and many more have been injured or suffered ill health.”
That means that there is an average of almost one death per week. In the year 2011/12 forty-one people were killed in accidents on farms or while doing other agricultural-related activities.
The most common fatal accidents are those involving farm vehicles, falling from a height, being struck by falling objects such as bales or trees, suffocation or drowning and accidents with livestock.
Farming also has its own disease; “Farmer’s Lung” so if you thought that farming was a healthy occupation, think again.
