As the summer comes to an end and winter is in sight, the type of claim that would be handled by the Wychavon ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers changes. This is because the population of the UK are doing different things, the hours of daylight have changed and the weather conditions are different. This influences the type of accident that takes place and the type of claim that the lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline may be working on.
How to Claim Compensation in Wychavon
One of the activities that we associate with the summer is going on holiday and following the annual summer getaway, lawyers find themselves working on several summer holiday claims. Some of these are from holidays abroad although these can be tricky to pursue. They involve slips, trips and falls and even food poisoning. Other claims are from the UK and should be more straightforward to pursue. Camping is an activity that is mainly carried out in the summer in the UK. For this reason, camp-site claims are more common in the summer than in the winter. Some claims follow accidents in the toilet blocks and showers whilst others involve the general site, liquefied petroleum gas or playgrounds.
Certain sports are also played more often in the summer. The cricket season is mainly confined to the summer months and tennis, rounders and baseball are all played more frequently. You may be able to claim for a sporting injury that was not your own fault if it can be shown that it was caused by faulty equipment, lack of training or lack of supervision.
Road traffic accidents are much more common in the winter than in the summer. This is generally attributed to the fact that the evenings are darker and the weather conditions are poor. More accidents occur in the dark for the simple reason that people cannot see things so clearly! Also, snow, rain and high winds make it more difficult to control a car and increase the chances that one car will collide with another.
Some sporting accidents are more common in the winter. Accident and Emergency Departments on a Saturday and Sunday morning are packed with people who have been hurt in football and rugby games. Most of these accidents will not be someone else’s fault but some may have been caused by inadequate training or supervision. Many sports clubs have an insurance policy which pays out personal injury claims.
Of course there are also the seasonal events such as Guy Fawkes Night and Halloween which bring their own dangers.
