Blackpool, nestling on the coast in Lancashire is a popular attraction to day visitors and tourists alike. The famous ‘illuminations’ still attract many thousands of people each year.
With the Pleasure Beach offering thrill seekers the opportunities to scream at the top of their voice, eat candy floss and generally have a great time, it is no surprise that this beach side resort has continued to attract people over the decades.
But you expect to be safe when you visit Blackpool along with all the other resorts across the UK. Local councils, companies and owners of tourist attractions must reasonable steps to safeguard the safety of their customers.
When they fail to do this, and people are injured, then the injured party is entitled under law to make a claim for compensation. This has been the case in UK law for many, many years. It is not a recent addition or invention to match what people see as the American import known as the ‘compensation culture’.
However, it is clear from the law that there are criteria that need to be met so that an injury lawyer in Blackpool can take your case further.
It needs to be shown clearly and without doubt that YOU were not responsible for the accident or event that caused you to be injured. For example, if you were hurt when a roller coaster derailed, your injury lawyer in Blackpool will need to clearly show that there was poor maintenance etc. that caused the accident.
The accident must also have happened within 3 years of the date on which you lodge your compensation claim. There are some exceptions to this which your injury lawyer in Blackpool will be able to explain further but in the case of accidents, this 3 year deadline is firm and immovable.
Finally, you must have received medical attention for your injured even it was cuts, bruises and a touch of whiplash – you need to clearly show that the accident did cause you medical problems.
