Ashwater is a village and civil parish in the Torridge district of Devon. According to the 2001 census, it had a population of 651. It is close by the Cornish border, about ten miles north of Launceston. The church is 13th century, with 15th-century windows, and an arcade that mixes the two periods. The decorated font is Norman, described as “a great treasure” in Mee.
Despite having such a tiny population, the location is so close to major tourist hotspots in Devon that Ashwater is regularly frequented by sightseers and tourists. The unfortunate truth of this is that the roads and structure of the village were not built for the amount of people and traffic it sees. This is why accidents and injuries arise.
Accident Advice Helpline and our accident lawyers in Ashwater work with members of the public who have fallen victim to an accident or injury that was not their fault. The most common kinds of accidents and injury cases we see are slips, trips and falls. These can have varying effects on the victim and are usually as a result of someone else’s negligence. For example, broken kerbs with no barriers or warning signs, cracked pavements left unfixed and trees left in unsafe conditions.
If you have fallen victim to an accident in a public place that was not your fault, the chances are that someone else is to blame. Councils, employers and drivers all have insurance to cover compensation claims; they all know what safety standards they must adhere to, and if they have failed to do this they have not only let you down — they have broken the law. For this reason you are legally entitled to engage accident lawyers in Ashwater, to help you seek financial compensation.
