Bideford’s history is extremely long and extremely interesting with it being the setting for many integral and enchanting tales and also the place where many historical events which shaped the rest of Britain took place. Hard to imagine when you see the pretty coastal town today that it was the scene of so many activities and in living memory, such as, during the years 1942 and 1943 when many American GIs arrived in Bideford in such high numbers. The town catered for them by establishing an American Red Cross as well as the erection of a cinema and vehicle repair shop. The war years also bought over 2800 evacuees from all over the country though as time went on it emerged that the Nazis had a map of Bideford and were planning an invasion so it possibly wasn’t the safest place to be evacuated to!
Earlier history reveals that there were many witch trials which took place here, with one being more apparent as there was a major case of three women from the same family all being tried and killed on public display for being proven to be witches. There is a memorial site to them to this day.
The town of Bideford is of much interest to historians and many come here regularly, as well as people with American ties, people who were evacuated here as children, or people who just love a pretty seaside resort! Injury Solicitors in Bideford are here to ensure that all runs smoothly and we do this by taking on compensation claims (for free) for those who have been injured in an accident which was not their fault. As qualified solicitors we can bring the dangers surrounding your accident to light in a court of law or to the relevant people, such as the perpetrator of your accident or the owner of the land. We can have safety standards made higher and we can make a change, but we can only do this if you pursue a claim for compensation as a form of justice.
Injury Solicitors in Bideford work with Accident Advice Helpline to always obtain our clients the absolute maximum compensation that is possible and our work is 100% no win no fee. Accident Advice Helpline was established as a law firm over a decade ago, at the same time the UK government removed legal aid for compensation cases, and this left the public extremely vulnerable. If they could not afford a large lump sum to pursue a case for compensation then there was nowhere to turn. That is until we came about. We work for you, we fight hard so you don’t have to.
