Bala is a welsh market town which is located in the historic county of Merionethshire. It is famed for its lake, named Bala Lake and has a population of 1,908 according to the 2001 census. Bala is a top UK holiday destination and is extremely busy in the summer months with many tourists from around the country choosing to holiday here. The weather is usually typically Welsh, when it is hot it is beautiful and when it’s not it’s raining!
The high street and shopping parade, which is really little more than one wide street, gets very busy more so in the summer months with many tourists using the little shops in search of anything from groceries to souvenirs. Slips trips and falls are the most common kind of accident that injury solicitors in Bala see, and these can occur usually in public places such as streets or shops. Usually someone will be at fault when you receive an injury in a public place.
Streets by law need to be safe at all times. This means that things like broken kerbs or cracked paving stones need to be repaired efficiently and speedily and until they are there must be clear signage to notify the public of the hazardous condition of the pavement and thus preventing falls. If you have slipped, tripped or fell due to bad conditions on a pavement and there wasn’t any notifications to warn you then injury solicitors in Bala can pursue the council or owner of the particular pavement for compensation.
Shops can be independent or council owned. Small tourist type shops tend to be family run businesses with one owner, and it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that their premises are entirely safe at all times. Overfilling of a shop, things left unrepaired, faulty electrics, missing floor tiles or anything down to their pet dog: if they have caused you an accident we can pursue the person responsible for this to get justice for you in the form of compensation.
