Blandford Forum, or Blandford, is a market town in Dorset and an example of a Georgian town, as, when fire destroyed a lot of the original town, it was rebuilt between the 1730s and 1760s. The Georgian Corn Exchange houses a market twice a week, and there is an outdoor one held once every week. During the first week of May, a Georgian Fayre is held in Blandford, which celebrates all things Georgian and which attracts thousands of visitors. Blandford Forum was the inspiration for Thomas Hardy’s Shottesford Forum in Wessex.
Looking for solicitors in Blandford?
You may need solicitors in Blandford for any number of reasons but if you are looking for personal injury solicitors in Blandford, you may not be able to find an appropriate one to help you. This may be true wherever you live in the British Isles, as there are so many types of accident that personal injury solicitors in Blandford and elsewhere tend to specialize in just one type of accident. For example, if you had an accident while mountain biking, you wouldn’t need help from a personal injury solicitor specializing in accidents at work.
Solicitors in Blandford or elsewhere could also help you make a case to prove that an illness you have been diagnosed with was caused because of another person’s negligence.
How long do I have to file a claim?
In general, you have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim for an accident that happened in the British Isles and the same amount of time to claim for an illness caused by another person’s negligence. However, there are some accidents and injuries which have shorter time frames in which you must make a claim or forfeit your right to do so. In order not to miss the expiry date for your claim, contact a firm of solicitors in your hometown to find out how long you have to make your specific claim.
