Biddenden is a village in the Weald of Kent. It was a centre of the iron industry and for cloth-making, with Flemish weavers arriving there in the 15th century. You can still see their latticed-windowed cottages on the High Street in Biddenden which were constructed in the 16th century.
The village might not have a firm of solicitors itself, and if it does, it may not have an expert in the area of law you need.
That’s because there are so many reasons why people may seek the services of solicitors in Biddenden, or ones based elsewhere.
If for example you think you have a potential personal injury compensation claim to make, you would need the services of an expert personal injury solicitor who specializes in the type of accident and injuries (or illness) which you have had.
Accidents at sea
You may have been injured at sea, either on a cruise boat, or a cargo vessel, and if that were the case, you would need to hire the services of solicitors in Biddenden or elsewhere, who is an expert in such matters.
You wouldn’t need the services of one who specialized in road traffic accidents, for example. If you had an accident at sea, you would have only two years in which to file a claim for your injuries.
Prove an accident was not your fault
You would have to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injuries was in no way your fault. You should check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out just how long you actually have to file your potential claim.
That is because there are different time limits for filing claims, depending on the accident type. If the accident happened in Britain, you would normally have three years to make a claim, but there are exceptions.
