Bordon is a town in north east Hampshire with connections (rather like Aldershot) to the military. The Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers are now based and train at the camp in Bordon. There is a large forest which houses the Longmoor Army Ranges just to the south of Bordon. If you ventured into these woods by accident and were shot, you probably wouldn’t be able to claim compensation, and neither would your nearest and dearest if the injury proved fatal, as you would have been on the land illegally.
Solicitors in Bordon
If you worked in Bordon, however, and were injured while at work, you may need the services of solicitors in Bordon in order to file a personal injury compensation claim.

You might also need solicitors in Bordon if you are diagnosed with an illness that can be demonstrated to have been the result of another person’s negligence.
If you are to file a successful personal injury compensation claim, it is vital to be able to prove your innocence, and that you were a victim of negligence or an accident.
Accidents at work
If you were injured in an accident at work, you should report the accident to the person responsible for keeping records of accidents in the accident book. All workplaces should have an accident book, and personnel should know exactly where it is kept. Employees should also be aware of who is responsible for reporting accidents at work to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
All the details of an accident should be recorded in the accident book, along with the names and contact details of any witnesses. If you believe that your accident will not be reported to the HSE, you can report it yourself.
If you have a mobile phone with you, take photographs of the scene of the accident and your injuries. Before and after photographs can be useful supporting evidence if you make a personal injury compensation claim.
You should seek immediate medical attention for your injuries, even ones that appear minor. Sometimes if injuries are not treated they become worse, so to be on the safe side you should get your injuries treated as soon as possible.
