Melksham has a spa, the springs of which were discovered by accident when a group of men tried to find coal there in the early 19th century. They built the spa buildings instead of having a coal mine, although this spa didn’t really become popular, probably because Melksham is close to Bath.
If you are a resident of Melksham or a visitor, and you have had an accident in which you sustained injuries, and you can prove it was not your fault, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Melksham in order to file a personal injury compensation claim. You usually have three years in which to do this from the date of your accident, although as you only have two years in which to claim for injuries sustained in some accidents, you should contact injury lawyers in Melksham or elsewhere to find out how long you have in which to file your claim. You can also call us at Accident Advice Helpline (the freephone numbers are given below) for this and any other information about your potential personal injury compensation claim.

Finding an injury lawyer
You need to find an injury lawyer who has the experience and expertise to help you win the maximum amount of compensation possible for your injuries or illness. As there are many types of accident, injury lawyers tend to specialize in one area of these. For example, there are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, accidents in public places and clinical negligence cases. You need a lawyer who specializes in the type of accident or illness which you have had.
You can usually expect to have a first appointment with a no-win, no fee injury lawyer free of charge, so that you can describe what has happened to you. By the end of the allotted time (usually about forty-five minutes), the injury lawyer should be able to tell you whether or not you have sufficient grounds on which to build a claim.
You can then decide to hire that lawyer to represent you, or you can look for another if you do not think you can get along well with him or her. If you encounter any difficulties in finding a suitable injury lawyer, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
