Nothing completes a Spanish holiday like being involved in a Fiesta. They take place almost all year round and are often linked to the Saint’s day of the town or parish. Some cities with many large churches seem to be in fiesta almost all the time. There are carnival processions, horse displays and often music well into the night. The general mood is usually very jovial and everyone is out for a good time but it still pays to be vigilant and not carry too much money and certainly cut down on obviously expensive jewellery and other accessories.
Watch out for slips and trips at the fiesta
One thing that is very important and this applies really throughout Spain and much of Europe in general, is to watch your step – literally. Roads and pavements are often uneven with a brick or cobble surface and it is all too easy to hurt yourself. Also, without going into too much detail, the horses do tend to create slippery areas which are also a trap for the unwary. If you fall, try not to save yourself by putting a hand out. Roll onto your back if you can, because although you will get bruises, you won’t end up with a fracture. Older people can get very badly hurt, but even younger ones will end up with a six week plaster cast, not easy when you are away from home.
If you sustain a fracture in an accident that is not your fault, get in touch.
Broken bones can be the result of a genuine accident and in fact that is usually the case, but they are sometimes caused by someone else’s incompetence, laziness, or lack of responsible behaviour. If you feel that you have been injured and it was someone else’s fault, call us on Accident Advice Helpline. We’re here to help 24/7 and our experienced and friendly staff will be able to tell you whether or not you have a valid claim. Many people hesitate to get in touch because they worry about fees, but there is no need to be concerned; our service is one hundred percent no win no fee**.
Can you claim with AAH?
Before you ring we just ask you to consider the following:-
- Was the accident someone else’s fault?
- Did you seek medical attention at or near the time?
- Did it happen in the last three years?
If the answer to the above is ‘yes’, then give us a call, because you could be due compensation.
