Your injury lawyer in Dorchester-on-Thames
Dorchester-on-Thames is a village on the River Thames, in Oxfordshire. Dorchester’s positioning close to the navigable Thames, and bounded on three sides by water made it strategic for both communications and defence.
Despite its name, Dorchester is not directly on the River Thames, but a few hundred metres from the Thame’s confluence with it. Historically the Thames was only so named downstream of the village; upstream it is named the Isis, and Ordnance Survey maps continue to label the river as “River Thames or Isis” above Dorchester.
The area is rather popular and is frequented by walkers and ramblers. With lots of ramblers and hikers in the town and surrounding areas, it is inevitable that someone will slip, trip or fall, be injured and need to use the services of an injury lawyer in Dorchester-on-Thames.
Even if you are lucky and have not had an accident you cannot have failed to notice the increased presence of compensation claim providers. Companies offering help to accident victims can be found on every street corner in every major town. Even accident and emergency rooms are filled with flyers and pamphlets offering advice. But what is the best route you can take if you feel you have suffered unnecessarily and want to discover if you can make a claim for compensation.
Things to keep in mind
You cannot make a claim simply because you have had an accident. There has to be blame attached; which simply means that your misfortune arose as a result of someone else’s negligence. Remember the often used claim motto “No blame no claim.”
Keep records of all and any medical attention you receive as this will be needed to process your claim and the details of anyone who may have witnessed your accident.
The date of the accident is of course vital as claims can only be made within three years of the date of occurrence (this can be extended with certain specific claims).
