If you have visited Bishop’s Waltham in Hampshire, you may have seen the ruins of the mediaeval palace used by the bishops of Winchester when they travelled around their diocese. In mediaeval times travelling involved considerable hardships, and there were thieves and murderers around, just as there are today. However, there were no solicitors in Bishop Waltham and there were no personal injury compensation claims to file if you were injured in an accident, or in a crime.
Looking for solicitors in Bishop’s Waltham?
You may require solicitors in Bishop’s Waltham if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You may, for example, have been following the old pilgrims’ route and been injured while on the ferry crossing to Normandy. Perhaps you were hit by a falling object, in which case you may, with the help of solicitors in Bishop’s Waltham or elsewhere across the UK, be able to prove that your injuries were caused by the negligence of a crew member who should have ensured that items were securely stowed away.
Accidents at sea
If you have been injured in an accident that occurred at sea, you have only two years from its date in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. You may have slipped on a wet deck whose anti-slip coating had worn away, and perhaps the handrail was not secure and broke when you grabbed it. If the ship had not been well-maintained, you could be eligible to make a claim for your injuries against the owner.
