    West Dorset accident


    Formed some 40 years ago as a local government district, West Dorset was named the tenth best place to live in the UK in 2006. Home to pretty towns like Bridport, Sherborne and Dorchester, and some of England’s most delightful countryside, this very rural area has a population of under 100,000.

    Unfortunately, its natural prettiness doesn’t make West Dorset immune from accidents, whether that’s on the roads, at work or slips, trips and falls in public places like restaurants, supermarkets, or just walking down the street.

    Equally, West Dorset has a proportion of elderly residents, who are potentially more vulnerable in these kinds of accidents.

    If you’ve had a West Dorset accident, you may not realise you can claim personal accident injury compensation to cover extra expenses incurred as a result of your injury, from prescriptions to damaged property or holidays you’ve had to cancel.

    While there’s been a lot of publicity over the years about what’s been dubbed the “compensation culture”, the reality is that this money is rightfully yours, you will need it, especially if you’ve had to take time off work, and you are legally entitled to claim it.
