Bishop Auckland in County Durham was a coal-mining centre during the Industrial Revolution, although now, of course, this industry has declined in importance in all areas of the UK. The bishops of Durham almost had autonomy over the county, which operated more or less as a state-within-a-state. However the power of the bishops waned and their temporal powers were removed after the death of Bishop William Van Mildert in 1836. There are probably solicitors in Bishop Auckland, but there may not be an expert in their offices who can deal with your particular personal injury compensation claim. If that is the case, call us at Accident Advice Helpline now for expert legal advice and help. There are two freephone numbers for you to call at any time, below.

Case of food poisoning
A family from Bishop Auckland had a very unpleasant experience while on holiday in Egypt in 2011. They had food poisoning and one member of the family had to have hospital treatment and fly home early. The family had booked their package holiday through a UK tour operator, so were entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim against that operator for the pain, distress and suffering caused by their illnesses, as well as for a ruined holiday, one suspects. Early in 2014, the family received a five-figure sum in compensation for their unpleasant experience although one member of the family is still waiting for her claim to be settled.
You may be entitled to claim for food poisoning while on holiday abroad if you booked a package holiday through a UK tour operator and you were ill because of the food you have eaten at the hotel you were staying in.
