Do you need help from a compensation lawyer in Cornwall?
Although many people reside in the county of Cornwall on a permanent full-time basis, it is also a popular holiday area. Every year, thousands of people travel to the county for a holiday or mini-break and some even return numerous times throughout the year.
With coastal areas on both the north and south borders of the county, there are plenty of beaches to visit and the range of inland amenities and facilities means that there is always something do, regardless of the weather!
Whilst some people have purchased second homes in Cornwall, this isn’t an option for everyone. However, with an extensive range of hotels, B&Bs and self-catering holiday cottages throughout the county, it should be easy to find somewhere to stay.
Fortunately, the internet has made it far easier for people to find accommodation which suits their needs. You can now view photos and even take interactive tours around potential holiday homes. Whilst most landlords and owners do keep their properties in good condition, there is a small chance that you could be disappointed with your accommodation on your arrival.
Have you been injured by dangerous holiday lets?
If the accommodation isn’t as it was described in the advert, you may wish to cancel your booking. However, you would need to find somewhere else to stay and there is no guarantee that you will be able to get your money back. Unfortunately, this means that people can end up staying in accommodation that they’re not completely happy with.
This can be worse if you suspect that the property is actually dangerous. If, for example, the appliances don’t work well or if the fixtures and fittings are very old, someone may suffer an accident as a result.
If you, a family member or a friend, have been hurt whilst staying in a holiday property, you may want to contact a compensation lawyer in Cornwall in order to make a compensation claim against the owners or the landlords. As long as you can show that the injury wasn’t your fault, there’s a good chance that your claim will be successful.
