Although numerous people do live in the county of Cornwall on a permanent basis, many people who once resided there have been forced to leave in order to find work. As there can be relatively few employment opportunities in some areas of the county, people who once lived in more rural locations have now moved closer to the larger towns and cities in order to look for more work.
Unfortunately, an increase in house prices in the area can mean that it’s difficult to get on the property ladder. With many people keen to buy a second holiday property in the county, it can mean that local residents who are trying to buy their first property need to save for a significant amount of time before they are able to do so.
Due to the distance between Cornwall and London, many people who work in the City are unable to commute to the county on a daily basis. This means that they are unable to move there completely but this doesn’t stop people from buying property in Cornwall and using it at the weekends and in the holidays.
As the popularity of Cornwall continues to grow, it seems that demand for houses and apartments all over the county will continue to increase as well. With picturesque coasts and idyllic beaches, it’s not surprising that so many people are keen to put down roots in the county.
Although the slower pace of life in Cornwall can mean that people are less stressed and less likely to suffer avoidable injuries, this doesn’t mean that you won’t fall victim to a Cornwall accident at some time or another.
If you live in the county, or you simply holiday in Cornwall, it’s possible that you may have suffered a Cornwall accident or been hurt whilst you were there. If you’ve suffered injuries because of a Cornwall accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be relieved to know that you could make a compensation claim.
If successful, whoever caused the Cornwall accident could be required to pay you compensation and they may take steps to ensure that another similar accident can’t occur. If you want to make a claim for a Cornwall accident, why not contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out more?
