Cramlington is a town in Northumberland, which has grown around the original village, dating back to the 12th century. Cramlington New Town was formed in 1964. The original village grew during the Industrial Revolution due to the coal in the area which had been dug since mediaeval times. Cramlington has an amazing piece of art which has been built into its landscape, using rock, clay and soil, a modern piece, unlike the chalk giant at Cerne Abbas which is ancient. This piece of art in Cramlington is called Northumberlandia or, as it is more commonly known, “The Lady of the North.” The figure is of a naked woman, and it is the largest one of its kind in the world, built by locals.
If you were distracted by Northumberlandia either while walking or driving past her, and you had an accident, you would probably not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim, as you have to prove that any accident in which you were injured was not your fault. Solicitors in Cramlington, or ones elsewhere, would not be able to help you unless you can prove you were an innocent victim of an accident.
Solicitors in Cramlington would, however, be able to tell you just how long you have to file your particular personal injury compensation claim. Mostly you have three years to file a claim from the date of your accident, but you can’t assume this will be true. You should contact solicitors in Cramlington, or ones near you, or us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out precisely when the expiry time is up for making your claim.
Illnesses and injury claims
Did you realise that you may also be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness that you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence? Such illnesses might be work-related, food poisoning, Legionnaire’s Disease and so on. Solicitors Cramlington or elsewhere can help you make a case so that you can file a personal injury compensation claim for such an illness. You have to be able to prove that it was indeed negligence on the part of another person that made you ill.
