Have you experienced an accident in Cwmafan in the garden?
When the warmer summer months are here, many people take the opportunity to get outdoors and spend time in their gardens. Whilst many keen gardeners keep working throughout the summer months, many homeowners here in Cwmafan use the summer months to perform outdoor DIY projects or to plant new shrubs and flowers. Gardeners sometimes have an accident in Cwmafan causing injury.
Gardening in itself is not overtly dangerous, but the tools employed can be. For example, if you decide to cut your grass, you may need to use a lawnmower. Whilst petrol and electric lawnmowers are most popular, even a traditional manual lawnmower could cause an accident.
If you’re hurt in an accident in Cwmafan while in your own garden, you may be able to claim compensation, but only if you can show that you weren’t at fault and that you weren’t responsible for the accident. If you happened to have suffered an accident in someone else’s garden, you may find it easier to show that you weren’t at fault.
When an accident in Cwmafan happens in the garden
If for example, you were visiting a friend or a family member and you suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault while you were on their premises, you may be able to make a claim against them.
Similarly, if you were to visit gardens which were open to the public, such as those surrounding a stately home, and you suffered an accident in Cwmafan, you may be able to make a claim against the owners. As they are required to ensure that the property is safe for the public, you could receive a significant amount of compensation, depending on the type of harm that you suffered.
Of course, making a compensation claim following an accident can do more than just help you to obtain compensation. If your injury did occur on someone else’s property, making a claim against them can help to ensure that the property is made safer, and that no-one else suffers a similar incident in the future.
