The village of Godolphin Cross lies in the west of Cornwall, a popular destination for tourists. Eventually the village’s greatest tourist attraction will be the Godolphin Estate, which is now in the hands of the National Trust and well on the way to being restored to its former glory. It is undergoing considerable renovation and rededication of purpose.
The estate’s lovely Tudor mansion, Elizabethan stables and early 16th century gardens and its beautiful woodlands will be open to the general public for the usual fee, unless you are a member of the National Trust. This latest edition to the wealth of wonderful National Trust properties will undoubtedly attract a large number of visitors to this part of Cornwall. The estate is located just 4.3 miles northwest of Helston, a neighbouring town. At 550 acres, the estate allows plenty of roaming around for families and their children, who will probably be less keen on the formal 16th century gardens and enjoy rampaging around the woodlands far more.
If you suffered injuries in an accident that happened on National Trust premises, you could claim compensation from the Trust providing that your accident was caused through their negligence and happened within the last three years.
What is a non-fault accident?
For example, if your children used the playgrounds on a National Trust property and the swing your three-year-old sits on suddenly collapses because of poor maintenance standards, you could make a compensation claim in Godolphin Cross with an accident solicitor’s help. If you purchased a toy at a National Trust shop which turned out to be one of those made with lead and arsenic-based paint from China, you could make a claim. Not that these are likely scenarios — the National Trust takes their responsibility towards the general public very serious indeed!
Where can you find an accident solicitor for your compensation claim in Godolphin Cross?
In small villages or towns, there may not even be an accident solicitor. Even if there is one, the law firm may not be willing to handle your injury claim on a no win no fee* basis, which would allow you to start your claim without making upfront payments of legal fees.
