    Bishop Cannings claims to be the place where the legend of the Moonrakers began. It does have a village pond, and is in Wiltshire, so there may be some truth in the claim. The county of Wiltshire was part of the old smugglers’ route from the coast to central parts of England, and there is a story of some wily villagers hiding contraband French brandy in a village pond to escape the excise men who were hot on their trail. One night they were trying to retrieve the casks of brandy when the excise men appeared and demanded to know what they were doing. One quick-thinking individual pointed at the full moon and explained that they were trying to rake in the wheel of cheese they could see in the pond. The excise men thought the smugglers were just simple yokels and left them to it, laughing loudly, no doubt as they left the village. However, the smugglers had the last laugh as they still had their brandy to sell.

    If one of the smugglers had been injured in a fight with the excise men, he would not have been able to find a firm of solicitors Bishop Cannings-based to help as he would probably not have been able to prove that the assault was unprovoked. There wouldn’t have been a firm of solicitors Bishop Cannings in the village either, and, of course, there were no personal injury compensation claims to file. Nowadays, there still might not be a firm of solicitors Bishops Cannings in the village, but if you need a personal injury solicitor, you can call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will try our hardest to find you a suitably experienced one to represent you if you have a valid claim to make.

    Victim of violence?

    If you have been injured in an assault (perhaps while a crime was taking place) and you can prove that you did nothing to provoke the attack, you may be entitled to claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

    In order to make such a claim, the crime would have had to have been reported to the police, who would have written a report and given you a unique crime reference number. You would also have had to have received medical treatment for your injuries, and probably the police photographer would have take photographs of your injuries. These could be used as supporting evidence for your claim. You should file a claim for criminal injuries within two years of the date of the crime.
