    Injury lawyers in Somerset

    Somerset is a county in South West England. Agriculture is a major business in the county. Farming of sheep and cattle, including for wool and the county’s famous cheeses (most notably Cheddar), are traditional and contemporary, as is the more unusual cultivation of willow for basket weaving. And then of course there are the cider apples for which they are so well known.

    Somerset has some extensive archaeological sites such as Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole and a complete skeleton, nicknamed Cheddar Man, dates back to 7150BC.  Some caves were occupied until more modern times. Glastonbury has a long history, but is more famous these days for its annual music festival, which attracts artists and visitors from all over the world.

    The Romans had a large presence in Somerset and there are signs of them all over the county, particularly in the city of Bath, which is where there are Roman Baths, located.

    Medical professionals in Somerset are the same as anywhere else in the UK, most of the time they do a fantastic job under great pressure.  Just occasionally though something goes wrong, the consequences for the victim can be dire and they might need to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Somerset.
