The Cornish town and port of Penzance is famous for its pirates and pasties, but not for people suffering accidents that they weren’t to blame for. Don’t let this lull you into a false sense of security though; if you’re visiting the area, there will be a chance you could get hurt as the result of somebody else’s irresponsible or negligent actions, no matter how aesthetically pleasing your surroundings are.
If you do get hurt as the result of an accident that wasn’t your fault while in any part of Cornwall, you may be able to avail yourself of the services of an injury lawyer in Penzance and sue the responsible party for compensation.

Tap in a few details about your accident, and you’ll find out what you could end with if your case were to be successful.
What types of incidents can an injury lawyer in Penzance help with?
The number of accidents an injury lawyer in Penzance might be able to win you compensation for is far too long to list here, but includes accidents suffered at work, food positioning, sports injuries, industrial injuries, and slips and falls. At the end of the day, if you were hurt as the result of somebody else’s negligence, you might be able to win a pay-out.
You’ll need to have collected evidence to support your claim for compensation. You’ll need medical evidence recorded by a doctor, preferably from as soon after you were injured as possible, as well as any photographic evidence of the scene of the incident you can get your hands on. You should also try and get the contact details of anybody who might have witnessed what happened to you. You’ll typically be able to take action within three years of the incident that led to you being injured, but this may not apply if the accident took place when you were a minor or if you’re taking action over an industrial illness.
