Prescot, in Merseyside, England, has a rich cultural scene, with a 10 day annual Prescot Festival of Music and Arts as well as an Elizabethan Fayre, so even if you don’t live in Prescot, you may have visited it. There’s a Producers’ Market on the first Saturday of the month, where you can buy locally grown produce as well as craft items and you may have gone to the funfair held on Valentine’s weekend 2014. It all sounds very lively and interesting, but when people are busy, accidents can happen. If you are a resident of Prescot, you may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Prescot, because you have been injured or become ill and you think you have a potential personal injury compensation claim to make.

You may be trying to work out what kind of illness could be caused by someone else’s negligence; the answer is quite simple. You may have been diagnosed with food poisoning after having a meal at a restaurant, for example.
