The village of West Down in North Devon, England, is an historic site, with its first recorded priest going as far back as 1272, and the current church there dating from the 14th century. Its Norman font is an exciting draw for historians, as it was buried in the churchyard during the Civil War and was only rediscovered in the 19th century.
Exploring such an historic and beautiful area can be fun for hikers and walkers, but slips, trips and falls are common in rural areas. Aside from being as careful as possible, there’s not much you can do if you are involved in an accident that was someone else’s fault.
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 is not maintained in West Down, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible to make an injury claim West Down.
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.
