Marsh Benham is a village situated close to Newbury in Berkshire. There is archaeological evidence, in the form of two ancient skulls and flint tools to indicate that the area around Marsh Benham has been inhabited for many centuries. These were found in the early 19th century by peat diggers who inadvertently destroyed the barrow or burial mound that had enclosed the bodies. Benham Park is a mansion built in 1775 close to the village of Marsh Benham. The first owner of the mansion was Henry Hollande, who was the son-in-law of Capability Brown, the landscaper and architect who lived between 1716 and 1783.
Whiplash injury in Marsh Benham
You might have been involved in some kind of accident in Marsh Benham (not necessarily a road traffic accident) which left you with a whiplash injury in Marsh Benham. If you were walking under a tree and a branch fell on your head, you could get a whiplash injury in Marsh Benham. However, if this happens to you, you may not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim unless the tree was in someone’s garden and had decayed to the point where it was unsafe and should have been cut down to avoid an accident such as yours.

Personal injury lawyers
You will need the services of a personal injury lawyer in order to make a personal injury compensation claim, and you need to find one who is an expert in handling claims from clients who have been involved in similar accidents to yours. That means that if you have an accident in a public place, you would need a specialist in such accidents rather than a personal injury lawyer who specializes in accidents in the workplace.
You also need to find out exactly how long you have from the date of your accident in which to file your particular claim. Although in the main, you have three years to file a claim, that isn’t true in the case of all types of accident. If you need this kind of information, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on our freephone number which you will find below.
