Looking for somewhere to say on holiday? Why not book your own cottage and have a break in a home from home. Sound ideal? Well it can be as long as things go to plan. Having a self catering break can be great fun but can also be hard work and although you are staying in your own cottage there are still things that you should be aware of as a holidaymaker if you want to avoid employing the services of an injury lawyer. Cottages all over Kent are rented out to holiday makers all year round and are maintained to the highest standards. All will have safety notices displayed and it pays to read these carefully if you are to avoid mishap on your holiday.
Getting there safely and avoiding a holiday injury in Kent
The first task is of course getting to your holiday cottage. Plan your route well ahead and make sure you take your time whilst driving. Impatient driving is a major cause of accidents on our road and you want to arrive at your cottage in one piece. If you are travelling a long way then check your car before you set off.
There will be safety notices displayed in the cottage or these may have been sent to you under the terms of the rental. Pay attention to them particularly those in relation to the gas and electricity and the use of appliances. Should anything seem faulty then contact the owner straight away and raise it as a concern.
During your stay.
If you should fall foul of an accident that was not your fault during your stay then you need to contact an injury lawyer. Cottages all over Kent will have contact numbers for the local emergency services on display but finding a personal injury lawyer is something you will have to do for yourself. Attend the local hospital to have your injury assessed and make sure you make a note of the date and time of the appointment and who you sae during your visit. This is all part of your medical treatment and may be needed as evidence during your claim. Don’t wait until you return home as this could cause problems with confirming the cause and time of the injury.
