Solicitors in Chatteris


Chatteris is a market town in the Fens, Cambridgeshire. For some years prior to 1808, the market was not in existence as bad roads and frequent flooding discouraged people from attending. Residents petitioned for it to be reinstated, which happened in 1834 with Fridays being allocated as market days. Today, fairs are held in Chatteris on the last Friday of April and the last Friday before Michaelmas.

Solicitors in Chatteris and accidents in public places

If you were injured going to the market at Chatteris in the 18th century due to the poor state of the roads, you would not have found solicitors in Chatteris to help you file a personal injury compensation claim, as these were non-existent. Nowadays, things have changed, although you still may not be able to find suitable personal injury solicitors in Chatteris to help you build a case to prove that an accident in which you were injured was not your fault.

If you sprained your ankle while you were walking along the street or road, for example, and you could prove the accident was not your fault, but sustained because the local authority had been negligent in its duty to maintain the streets, you could perhaps, with the help of a firm of solicitors in Chatteris, file a personal injury compensation claim.

How much compensation for a sprained ankle?

If you fall in the street because it has been poorly maintained, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. For a sprained ankle which would heal within a year, you might receive up to £4,455. If the sprain did not heal in that time, you might receive up to £11,110 for the pain and suffering caused.

Added to this amount would be costs for medical treatment, if you had to have physiotherapy for example, which was not covered by the NHS. If you had to have time off work, you could also expect to receive compensation for loss of earnings. You might also be able to claim for taxi fares to and from the hospital or your GP’s surgery, as long as you have the receipts. Prescription charges can also be claimed for if you have kept the receipts. Any expenses incurred directly because of your injury can be included within a personal injury compensation claim.
