    Compensation claim in Penzance


    Despite its beautiful landscapes and scenery, accidents can occur in Penzance as easily as in other towns and cities around the United Kingdom.

    Perhaps you had a holiday in Penzance and had an accident while there and are now thinking about making a compensation claim in Penzance. Alternatively you may live and work in Penzance and wish to make a claim for a work-related illness or occupational disease.

    When to make a compensation claim in Penzance

    If you have been involved in an accident and have suffered injuries as a result of it, and that accident was not your fault, then you could have grounds to make a compensation claim in Penzance.

    However, in most instances, you will only have 3 years’ in which to take legal action after an accident so it’s important to seek help relatively quickly.

    Often, people make the mistake of thinking they can only make a compensation claim in Penzance if they’ve suffered very serious injuries. Although you can take action if you’ve experienced life-threatening injuries, you can make a claim for more minor injuries too.

    Providing you’ve received medical treatment for your injuries, you should be able to move forward with a compensation claim.

    Accidents on holiday

    If you have had an accident while on holiday, such as a slip, trip or fall and broken a limb, then you could have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim. If you tripped over an obstacle in the hotel grounds which should not have been there (a garden hose, for example) in the dusk or dark, then you and your solicitor could build a case to prove the hotel owner had been negligent.

    If you fell over a piece of broken paving in the hotel grounds and there was no warning sign in the vicinity, then you could also claim personal injury compensation from the hotel owner (who should have public liability insurance to cover such claims). You may also have been burned by scalding water in your hotel bathroom if the hot water system was not properly maintained. This would also be a case of negligence on the part of the hotel owner.

    There are many different scenarios and as each accident is different, the permutations are endless; there are so many scenarios that each accident and its circumstances are unique.
