Forest of Dean Accident Claim Solicitors
As we grow older, we begin to realise just how precarious our lives can be. Simply by leaving the house, or not, as the case often is, we are potentially subjecting ourselves to be in harm’s way and as careful as we may be or might believe we are, accidents can and do happen anywhere.
In many cases, there is nobody to blame for these unfortunate incidents and we simply must brush ourselves down, recover and then attempt to learn from the experience so that it stands a smaller chance of happening again.
However, there are other cases where the accident occurred because of an action or lack of action on someone else’s’ part. In this case, our law allows that we can choose to seek a claim for compensation and for this purpose, many people choose to use Forest of Dean accident claim solicitors.
For many people, there is nothing better than a good hike or ramble. The fresh air, the lovely views and the physical benefits mean that thousands of people every weekend can be found marching through the countryside.
In many cases, a good walk is one of the least dangerous of activities and most leave unscathed, short of a little mud on the boots.
However, rough terrain and all that mud does mean that the scope for accidents is maximised.
Accidents in the countryside tend to fall into two categories. Those which are simply part and parcel of being in the great outdoors and those which could have been foreseen and therefore prevented. For example, if a person were to slip on a log they had climbed on to get a better view then the accident occurred because of their own actions. Nobody else was involved and therefore nobody else can be held accountable.
However, if the same person were to fall from a faulty stile which was either on farmland or in land owned by the National Trust then they are not to blame. Someone else had the responsibility for maintaining and repairing that stile and therefore the fault must lie with them for the injury sustained. In the event that you have received an injury through an accident which was not your fault, but the fault of another person, you are entitled to make a claim through Forest of Dean accident claim solicitors.
