Prestonpans may seem a strange name, but Preston originally meant “priests’ town” and “pans” refers to the salt pans which were used to extract salt from the waters of the River Forth. Salt was being produced in Prestonpans from the 1100s, with coal mined locally used to fuel the process of evaporation. In 1745, it was the scene of a battle won by the Jacobite forces, and so its name has gone down in the history books. Today, Prestonpans is a small town, so there may not be a firm of injury solicitors in Prestonpans.
Why might you need injury solicitors in Prestonpans?
There are several reasons why you could need a firm of injury solicitors in Prestonpans. For example, you may have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault, and with the help of injury solicitors in Prestonpans, you might be able to file a personal injury compensation claim.
You may also be seeking the services of a firm of injury solicitors in Prestonpans, or one anywhere else in the UK for that matter, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused because of another person’s negligence.

Claims and members of the armed forces
Prestonpans was not only the scene of a battle, but it also has a war memorial and a plaque dedicated to those who died in the Spanish Civil War. The soldiers who died in battle left small pensions for their wives in those times, but there were no personal injury solicitors in those days; neither were there personal injury compensation claims which could have been made by members of the armed forces or their dependants.
If you or a spouse believe that you are entitled to compensation for injuries, physical or psychological, sustained while serving in the armed forces, you may need the services of an injury solicitor who is experienced in filing claims against the Ministry of Defence.
