Torrington is a small market town in the north of Devon, England. Although a very beautiful area, it can also be quite dangerous due to parts of the town being located on high ground with steep drops down to the River Torridge below. Unfortunately, the lower side of the town is also prone to occasional flooding.
Although living or visiting such an area requires due care on the part of each individual, sometimes accidents can occur that are not your fault. The town of Torrington is prone to locals and visitors experiencing nasty slips, trips and falls, which are sometimes due to proper safety measures not being put in place.
If you have experienced an accident in Torrington in the last three years that resulted in you needing medical attention, and the accident was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Torrington. If you suffered an accident due to an unsafe or hazardous public environment, then it may be the case that the local council is liable for your injury.
If you are unlucky enough to suffer an injury due to a slip, trip or fall, seek immediate medical attention and try to photograph the area as evidence of your lack of culpability. You should attempt to speak to any witnesses who saw your accident.
Such personal injury claims can be as a result of the following:
- A trip on broken pavement
- A fall down a stairway
- A slip on an icy pathway
