    Solicitors in Brockenhurst


    Brockenhurst, in the New Forest, is one of the prettiest villages in the area. It is unique with ponies, cows and donkeys roaming the streets peacefully. The name Brockenhurst means ‘badgers’ home’, and if you venture into the Forest at dusk, you might be fortunate enough to see one of these shy creatures.

    If you drive or cycle through Brockenhurst you may have to traverse the Watersplash, which is a picturesque ford that can get you very wet. The locals are used to it, but tourists find it a trifle curious.

    The New Forest was the hunting ground of William the Conqueror, and William Rufus, we know visited Brockenhurst as he issued two writs while there. The unfortunate man who became William II died while out hunting in the New Forest, shot by an arrow, and to this day we can only speculate as to whether this was an accident or an assassination.

    Solicitors Brockenhurst

    You may not be able to find a firm of solicitors Brockenhurst, but of course there would be many in Southampton.

    If there are solicitors Brockenhurst-based, they might not have a personal injury solicitor who could help you if you thought you had a personal injury claim to file. If you are a visitor to Brockenhurst, you may have had an accident in the street, on the railway platform, or perhaps you antagonized one of the larger animals that wander along the street.

    If you provoked an animal such as a cow and it attacked you, even with the help of solicitors Brockenhurst, or ones elsewhere, it is doubtful that you would have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Grounds for making a personal injury claim

    To make a successful personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that the accident in which  you sustained injuries was not your fault, but the fault of another person (even if that person was not at the scene of the accident).

    For example, if you swerved to avoid a cow that had escaped from a field, you may be able to sue the farmer whose animal it was, as animals (in most parts of the country) have to be kept in enclosed spaces. If the farmer had not repaired a fence or hedge, this could be construed as negligence.

    If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you claim was caused by someone else’s negligence, you and your solicitor must be able to prove this.
