Meriden lays claim to being located at the centre of England, although there are other contenders for this. There is a village cross on the green in Meriden which is said to mark the spot which is the middle of England; however, the local pub, the Bull’s Head has a plaque on the floor saying that it is the centre of England. Meriden‘s other claim to fame is that the parish church in Meriden is said to have been founded by Lady Godiva.

You can also file a personal injury compensation claim against a person whose negligence has caused your illness. This may be your employer in the case of a work-related one, or perhaps a landlord if you are a tenant living in poor housing conditions.

Filing an injury claim
Although you have three years, usually in which to make a personal injury compensation claim, it is wise to start the claim process as soon as you possibly can. If you had an accident, as the details would be fresh in your mind, whereas if you wait for almost two years to file your claim, the details will be less clear. Also, you don’t know in advance how long the process will take; if your claim can be settled out of court, then you may receive compensation within six months. On the other hand, if the claim needs to go before a court, the process may take years before you are awarded compensation and in the meantime, you could suffer financial hardship.
