Blagdon is a village in the Mendips with several Grade II listed buildings in it. In the 18th century it became famous, or perhaps infamous, when Hannah Moor founded a Sunday School in Blagdon in 1795. She was horrified when she saw the poverty and illiteracy of Mendip residents in general, and set up an educational programme. The school in Blagdon was eventually forced to close because of the opposition of the curate Mr. Bere, who was also the magistrate. The so-called Blagdon Controversy was a landmark in the movement to educate the working classes in the UK.
Blagdon Lake is a popular venue for anglers who can fish for trout from its banks, or take to the waters in the rowing boats which are for hire there. It is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest because of the number of species and different habitats in its vicinity.
Solicitors in Blagdon
If you live in Blagdon, you may be looking in vain for a firm of solicitors in Blagdon with an expert in personal injury compensation. If you have been injured in an accident you will need an expert solicitor who has handled compensation claims for people who have had similar accidents to the one you were injured in. Solicitors in Blagdon, or elsewhere, could help you build a case to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you sustained injuries.
Solicitors in Blagdon, for example, could also help if you have been diagnosed with an illness that they can help you prove was caused by another person’s negligence.
Filing an injury claim
You generally have three years in which to make your personal injury compensation claim after the date of your accident or of being first diagnosed with an illness. However, some accidents and the injuries resulting from them, have much shorter periods of time for you to file a claim. Therefore, you should check with a firm of solicitors in Blagdon (or one near you), to find out just how long you have to file your claim. You can also call us at Accident Advice Helpline to get this (and other) information. The sooner you begin the claims process the better for you as sometimes it takes time before a claim can be settled.
