Over to the east of Oxfordshire, there is a village called Stanton St John. It is also recognised as a civil parish. It covers a little over four square miles, and has a population of just 430 people as per the last census to take place in 2011. As with any small village, you would expect to travel further afield to be able to use and engage with certain services. For example, it might be hard to find a solicitor in Stanton St John, particularly one who handled personal injury claims.
No one ever expects to be in a situation whereby they would have good reason to find out about making a personal injury claim, of course. And yet every year, some people do experience these situations. Since you never think about claiming unless you have good reason to do so, you may not know how to proceed when something does happen.
Taking the first steps
The most important thing to do if you are hurt in an accident, no matter where it is, is to get some medical help. Sometimes, you’ll need to do this anyway. If you think you might have a broken bone, for example, you’ll need to find out for sure. But if you are ever in an accident caused by a third party, getting medical attention is very important because you need to have evidence of your injuries. This is gleaned by being seen by your GP, or by visiting a casualty unit or even an out-of-hours minor injury unit.
You can then focus on getting well. There is a three-year time limit for you to make a claim, so this means you can get better first, and then find out more about a possible claim later. Remember, when you are ready to do this, we are here to provide you with the advice you need. It’s given on a no-obligation basis as well, making life even easier for you.
Take the easy route, rather than looking for a solicitor in Stanton St John
You can probably now see why it is better to make a phone call than to spend ages looking for a solicitor in Stanton St John, if you live in this area. It’s also not necessary to find a solicitor who is local to the area where you had your accident, if that is the reason why you are looking for someone.
