The village of Alfriston in Wealden, Sussex has a population of 829 (2011 census) and boasts several claims to fame. There are three pubs here including The Smuggler’s Inn, and Pub Dig, an archaeology programme aired on channel 5, uncovered evidence at the site of the pub which suggested Neolithic activity as well as signs of smuggling. The 1964 film ‘The Chalk Garden’ was also filmed in and around the village.
If you’ve been injured in Alfriston, whether you live in the village or have been visiting friends or relatives here, you may struggle to find solicitors in Alfriston who specialise in personal injury law, which is when choosing a nationwide firm of injury lawyers could be a good idea.
Injured in Alfriston
If you’ve been injured by a car in Alfriston, you might want to make a personal injury claim if the driver is at fault. Perhaps you were crossing the road when a speeding driver hit you. You may have been injured by a driver who was using their mobile phone at the wheel, or hit by a reversing vehicle when the driver failed to check their rear view mirrors. Pedestrians or cyclists could be seriously injured if they are hit by a vehicle, and here are a few examples of the types of injuries you could sustain:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Facial injuries, such as a cheekbone fracture or black eye
- Crush injuries, for example if you’re crushed under a heavy vehicle
- Back, neck or shoulder injuries
