The small and historic village of Wickham is located in Hampshire, southern England. The town still holds true to its traditional roots and holds an annual gypsy horse fair every May. However, despite the seemingly idyllic scene of historic village life, the fair is controversial due to the fights and local burglaries that occur during this time.
It’s a pity that such festivities cannot be enjoyed without trouble, however such incidents can also lead to accidents and injuries through no fault of the victim. Of course, sometimes fair accidents such as slips, trips and falls can occur due to human error. However, sometimes these accidents can occur through no fault of your own, but instead due to a lack of health and safety measures or jostling pedestrians.
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. If safety measures and general upkeep is not maintained in Wickham, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible to make an injury claim in Wickham.
