The main influences in the long history of Castleford are depicted on its coat of arms which shows a miner’s lamp hung from the collar of a Roman Eagle. The town’s origins are ancient. In the late 1st century and until 180 AD the Romans created an important settlement on the River Aire where Castleford stands today. This consisted of a civilian settlement around a military fort. It was known as Lagentium or locally as Legioleum. Here travellers waited for the River Aire to become low enough to ford the river in order to cross it. This fort gave the town its name Castleford which comes from the Latin ‘Castrum’ meaning a camp or fort. One of the most notable Roman town centre sites is that of the Bath House on Aire Street. The settlement at Castleford continued after the Romans left until about 410 AD.
Looking for an Injury Solicitor in Castleford
If you or a loved one has suffered an unexpected accident or injury, you may be looking for an injury solicitor in Castleford in order to find out whether or not you’re eligible to make a claim for compensation.
If the harm you suffered wasn’t your fault and was caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that an injury solicitor in Castleford will be able to help you successfully claim compensation. Although we’re often eligible to make a claim for compensation, few people realise it.
Why make a claim for compensation?
One of the most important things to consider when contemplating a compensation claim is that the money received from accident compensation can help your recover any financial loss suffered following your injury – for example lost wages or medical expenses. Also, and this is not something many people understand is that claiming accident compensation can also prevent other people from suffering in the same way you have.
If, for example, you were injured in your place of work making a claim can draw the attention of your employer to situation causing your accident. If your injury arose from falling or slipping in a public place then making a compensation claim can ensure that the defect is corrected and no one else suffers the same fate.
