You may have visited Helston, Cornwall, to see the traditional Floral Dance which has been performed there for centuries in spring. There are many other attractions to be seen in and around Helston and it has become a tourist centre now. Porthleven beach with its three miles of golden sand is close to the town, as is Flambards, where there are different rides for all the family as well as exhibitions which include the Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz. You might live in Helston too, and perhaps you have just been trying to find injury lawyers in Helston to represent you in a personal injury compensation claim case.
Injury lawyers in Helston
You may be seeking injury lawyers Helston if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if you have suffered injuries in such an accident.
You can also file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness which can be proven to have been caused by another person’s negligence. This is another reason why you could be looking for injury lawyers in Helston.
Accidents in public places
If you have an accident in a public place, which is loosely defined as anywhere open to the general public, you may be able to prove, along with your injury lawyers Helston or elsewhere, that it was the result of another person’s negligence.
For example, if you were at an amusement park and tripped over a wire or cable that had been concealed in grass, you may be able to make a claim for the injuries you sustained. You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owners of the amusement park.
You may have badly sprained you ankle if you accidentally put your foot in a pothole while crossing a road. If so you could make a claim against your local authority whose responsibility it is to maintain streets.
If you have an accident in the street, you should inform the police and the local authority, and have medical treatment as soon as you possibly can.
If you have an accident in a shop, supermarket, amusement park and so on, you should inform a member of staff. Then the details of your accident should be recorded in the accident book, along with the names and contact details of any witnesses.
