    Solicitors in Bruton


    Bruton is a town in Somerset with a long history and one which has escaped development because of its geography. The River Brue runs through it and floods the town fairly often. In the Domesday Book of 1086, Bruton is named as Briuuetone, which means ‘vigorously flowing river’. There’s a Grade II listed dovecote above the town, which was built in the 16th century. It had been a gabled Tudor tower, which stood in the deer park of Bruton Abbey. It was converted to a dovecote at some time around 1780. The Packhorse Bridge in Bruton attests to its being once a centre of the wool trade in medieval times.

    It is thought that there was a church in Bruton at least since the 7th century and some people believe it was built by St. Aldhelm. He was the Abbot of Malmesbury and Bishop of Sherborne, who was the first Englishman to foster classical learning with some success. He is also the first that we have some literary remains of.  He travelled to Rome at some stage, but always returned to Malmesbury.

    Apart from when you sustain injuries in an accident, you may also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which you could prove was caused by another person’s negligence.

    Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence

    St. Aldheim would have had to work by candlelight to read and write and presumably his eyesight began to fail by the time he died. Of course, there were no personal injury compensation claims to be made at that time and he would have been unable to sue his employer for damages, especially if he believed that God was his employer.

    However, if you work in front of a computer screen all day, there are certain health and safety precautions your employer should take to ensure you do not become ill because of the work you do. Your eyesight might begin to fail, you may be diagnosed with repetitive strain injury because your work station is not adjusted to suit your physical requirements. You may be entitled to make an injury claim for an illness against your employer.
