Cookham is a town in Berkshire. For many years, particularly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the townspeople have fought off attempts to enclose the common land around the town. To stop this happening, they eventually formed a committee that raised the funds to buy the land, which they then donated to the National Trust.
The area has had settlements since prehistoric times. Burial mounds and artefacts, including the largest stone axe ever found in Britain, were found in excavations in the 19th century. It is thought that the earliest church building probably dates back to around 750 AD, but the earliest part that can be identified was not built until the 12th century.
It would appear that Cookham has had a varied and interesting history, but unfortunately just like the rest of us, the inhabitants could end up in an accident that was not their fault and sustain injuries severe enough to need medical attention. If this happens, they should contact injury solicitors in Cookham to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The accidents for which you can make a claim
If you are involved in any type of accident that was not your fault, you would be able to make a personal injury claim. A few examples are:
- Holiday accidents;
- Accidents in educational facilities;
- Car crashes;
- Motorbike accidents;
- Bicycle accidents;
- Defective products that cause harm;
- Work-related accidents;
- Industrial illnesses or conditions;
- Food poisoning;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Medical negligence; and
- Any other accident that was not your fault.
Making a personal injury claim is possible for any type of accident at all, providing it was not your fault, your injuries needed medical attention and the accident has happened within the last three years.
