The market town of Todmorden in West Yorkshire, England is a beautiful rural area surrounded by stunning moorlands. Such an area is the perfect enticement for tourists and walkers to explore, but often such surroundings can also lead to accidents and injuries.
Some of the most common accidents to occur in such small towns are slips, trips and falls. Of course, these can easily occur due to human error and lack of caution, but sometimes a nasty slip or fall is not your fault, and can leave you with an incapacitating injury to deal with.
At Accident Advice Helpline we know that sometimes an accident just isn’t your fault, and it is unfair that you should have to suffer because of it. On many occasions, people suffer slips, trips and falls in the countryside due to uneven footpaths, negligence in the maintenance of steps and walls and even overgrown plant life. If safety measures and general upkeep are not maintained in Todmorden, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible to make an injury claim in Todmorden.
If your accident was in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you should check today and see if you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible to make an injury claim in Todmorden. Such injury claims can include injuries sustained as a result of:
- A fall on a broken pavement
- A trip due to unruly overgrowth
- A slip down a poorly maintained stairwell
The local council is responsible for ensuring that Todmorden is a safe place for you and your family to enjoy. If you are badly injured in a slip, trip or fall, you should seek medical attention immediately as well as gather statements from any witnesses if possible. Do your best to photograph the scene of your accident (even on a camera phone) to add further weight to your claim.
