Have you suffered a Mid Sussex accident?
Situated within the county of West Sussex, Mid Sussex is home to East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill. Situated relatively close to Gatwick Airport, many people travelling from other parts of the county may refer to ‘Mid Sussex’ when they are travelling to the airport.
Although many people worry about sustaining a Mid Sussex accident in the air, many people who are hurt whilst travelling are actually injured whilst they are on their way to the airport or in the airport itself, rather than in the air.
As airports tend to have very strict check-in times, you can easily miss your flight if you are late. Although the plane may not have departed, the security measures and baggage requirements mean the late passengers simply cannot be accommodated. As most holiday packagers and flight operators do not provide refunds for late passengers, many people rush to try and ensure that they don’t miss their flight.
Unfortunately, this can be extremely dangerous, particularly if they are driving to the airport. If they speed or drive erratically in order to try and get there on time, they could be more at risk of suffering a Mid Sussex accident. Similarly, if people try to rush or run through the airport to get to the relevant check-in desk, they could slip and suffer a Mid Sussex accident or they could cause someone else to suffer a Mid Sussex accident.
If you’re hurt whilst at the airport or you suffer a Mid Sussex accident, you may be able to take a compensation claim against those responsible and you could receive a substantial amount of compensation if you are successful. If you’ve been hurt but you’re not sure if you will be eligible to make a claim, simply ask yourself if you were responsible for the incident. If you weren’t, and someone or something else caused the Mid Sussex accident there’s a good chance that you will be able to make a claim.
Although someone or something else must be responsible for the incident in order for you to be eligible to make a claim, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they must have intended to hurt you in any way. Even if they caused the Mid Sussex accident inadvertently, they could still be held legally responsible and you could still make a claim against them.
