People who live in the Forest of Bowland are environmentally aware and promote sustainable living and tourism. You may not know where the Forest of Bowland is, but it is also known as Bowland Fells, which gives you more of an idea. It was once a forested area but is now more of a heath, with barren gritstone fells and deep valleys. The people of the area are trying to attract more tourists to this area of Lancashire but want the tourism to be sustainable, as the Forest of Bowland has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
However, even in such amazingly beautiful areas accidents happen, so you may be looking for a firm of injury lawyers in the Forest of Bowland because you have been injured in an accident for which you were not to blame.

Accidents on holiday
If you go abroad on a package holiday which you booked through a UK tour operator and you had an accident in the hotel you were staying in, you might be able to claim compensation for your injuries, as well as for a ruined holiday if you can prove that your accident was the fault of the hotel owner or staff. Anyone who receives money for services from the UK tour operator is deemed to be their representative at the resort.
For example, if you slipped on a highly polished floor and broke an arm when you fell, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury, the cost of medical treatment and medical expenses, and so on, if you keep receipts. If your accident occurred outside the hotel and its grounds you may still be able to claim compensation, but the claim would be subject to the laws in the country where you had your accident.
