Bolsover is a town in Derbyshire; it was once a coal-mining town. Bolsover castle overlooks the town and was built by one William Peverel (or Peveril), who may have been an illegitimate son of William the Conqueror, in the 11th century. The castle has had a chequered history, as in 1155 William Peverel III fled England and the castle became the property of the Crown. Following a revolt led by his sons, Richard and John, King Henry II stationed a garrison at the castle to repel would-be attackers. The revolt was quashed and Henry’s sons begged forgiveness which was granted. The castle was wrangled over for centuries and was eventually bought by Sir Charles Cavendish in the early 17th century. It was his son, William, who oversaw the completion of the castle and who was responsible for its luxurious state rooms and décor.
Why would I need a lawyer in Bolsover?
Building and renovating a castle must have taken a toll on the workforce. Heavy stones were needed and there were no health and safety regulations in the past to protect workers. Nowadays things are different of course, and if you can prove that you were not responsible for an accident in which you were injured, you may require an accident lawyer in Bolsover to help you file a claim. You can also file a claim on behalf of your dead spouse, partner or father if you can prove that they were not responsible for their accident and that another person was to blame for it.
If you have, or had an illness (in the last three years) that you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence, then you could also need an accident lawyer in Bolsover. You might, for example, have been diagnosed with an occupational disease which you might, with the help of a lawyer in Bolsover, be able to prove was the result of your employer’s negligence.
Generally speaking, if you have been injured in an accident within the UK, you have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim, as long as you can prove you were a victim of the accident. However, as this is not the case for all types of accident and the injuries arising from them, call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have left in which to claim. You also have three years to claim for an illness caused by the negligence of another person.
