Compensation in the Forest of Dean


The Forest of Dean is a beautiful place, positioned as it is very close to the Cotswolds to the east and Wales to the west. Plenty of people come to the area on holiday each year, and many more pass through it on their way to nearby areas such as Ross-on-Wye and Gloucester. While you may correctly assume that compensation in the Forest of Dean is rarely called for, there are occasionally rare instances where people suffer accidents while driving in the area.

There are many other ways to get around in the forest as well, not least of which is cycling. Walkers also make use of paths that criss-cross the area and provide access to some of the best viewpoints of all.

If you are hurt, isn’t it just an accident?

Sometimes we are all unlucky. Things can happen that are pure accidents and are no one else’s fault. You could trip on a log while walking through the forest, for example, and sprain your ankle in the process. That would be bad luck, but no one would be to blame.

But sometimes things can happen that do cause injury that were someone’s fault. Let’s suppose you are cycling through the forest and a car speeds around the corner and knocks you off your bike. If they were speeding, they may well have been driving without due care and attention. That in turn could lead to you suffering some nasty injuries.

So is it possible to claim compensation on some occasions?

Compensation in the Forest of Dean may potentially be paid out to you if someone else’s actions resulted in you suffering an accident. Your injuries do not need to be serious or life threatening to be compensated in this way. Proof of negligence is the one thing that matters the most.
