Have you been injured in Cornwall?
Due to its location and amenities, many of the people who visit Cornwall are tourists. Although a significant number of people do move to the area, many people need to stay nearer to bigger cities in order to continue working.
As a result, many people travel to the county for holidays, mini-breaks or long weekends. In some instances, people even buy second properties in the county.
Due to this, many people in Cornwall may not live there on a full-time basis and, therefore, they may not as familiar with the area as local, full-time residents. This means that they may be more at risk of accidents occurring.
If you aren’t familiar with local roads, for example, you may be more likely to be involved in an accident or collision.
Making an injury claim in Cornwall
If you’ve been hurt whilst in the area and the incident wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in Cornwall. Whether you’re a local resident, a holidaymaker or a part-time resident, you could be eligible to take legal action if you’re affected by an accident that was caused by someone else.
However, in order to be eligible to obtain injury compensation, you’ll need to have received some kind of medical treatment. Whilst you can make an injury claim in Cornwall for less serious injuries, you will need to have been diagnosed and treated by a medical professional.
If you visited the local hospital, a walk-in clinic or a doctor, this should enable you to move forward with your claim. Fortunately, your medical records should indicate the treatment you received so this should be a relatively easy part of your claim to prove.
