Have you had a walking accident? If you have and can prove that it was caused by the negligence of someone else, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the person or organisation responsible, and should get in touch with the best solicitors in Castle point to find out for sure.
Avoid a walking accident
Although hiking and walking can be rather solitary pursuits, many people enjoy hiking in groups or in pairs. In addition to hiking with family members and friends, many people join local hiking or walking groups in order to meet new people or to explore new areas.
Whilst hiking and walking is not generally considered to be particularly dangerous, it can result in injuries and accidents from time to time. If, for example, you’re not familiar with the area, you may prefer to explore in a group rather than on your own so you can access help if you were to get lost or to be injured in a walking accident.
Although people are free to roam off the beaten track, there are many dedicated hiking and walking trails all over the country and the continent. Ranging in difficulty, they offer something for all types of walkers and people with varying types of experience.
Whilst most trails are kept clear and relatively safe, you will need to take care in order to try and avoid an injury. If litter is left on a trail by people fly tipping in the area, someone could easily trip or suffer an accident that was not their own fault. They may then need the advice of the best solicitors in Castle point.
Similarly, if the trail is wrongly marked on maps or not kept clear, people could easily become lost as a result. If you’re hurt whilst hiking or walking and it wasn’t your fault, you may be surprised to learn that you could potentially make a compensation claim after having an accident.
Can I make a claim?
As long as you can show that you weren’t at fault and that someone else was, there’s a good chance that you will be able to make a claim for your injuries. You will also need to show (with your medical records and doctor’s report) that you had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as was possible after your accident.
