Coalpit Heath is a small village in the parish of Westerleigh, South Gloucestershire, England. It contains three public houses as well as numerous shops, a post office and a hugely popular 27-hole golf course named the Kendleshire. Originally a coal mining settlement, with the last pit running out of coal in 1949, there’s been a lot done here to preserve the history of the coal mining of the town by the South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group. This brings in a lot of tourism, which is a boost to the village’s economy.
The majority of Coalpit Heath is grassy, with many fields and much in the form of easy accommodation, and this has made it a well sought after place to live. Our injury solicitor in Coalpit Heath has a passion for the area and its people, and we are seeing many accidents occur here through slips, trips and falls, possibly due to the cobbled streets and dated roads, or wider population during summer months which means crowds.
Slips, trips and falls are events for which nobody can plan, and they can have an astronomical effect on the rest of your life depending where on your body you fell and where took the largest impact. For example, a head injury can be utterly devastating — it can leave you with lifelong difficulties such as severe headaches, personality change, migraines, memory loss, or they can even be fatal.
Sometimes something as innocent and ordinary as a slip, trip or fall can change your quality of life permanently. A bad break, for example, in extreme cases could even mean amputation — the loss of your limb. This will mean the rest of yours life is going to be very different for a long time to come. You are also likely to incur many financial losses, such as paying for treatments like physiotherapy, purchasing mobility aids, having home adaptations, and not forgetting the travel expenses for all of the above.
Your injury solicitor in Coalpit Heath can claim these expenses back as part of your claim, which means we can attempt to win back everything that you have paid out for as a result of your accident covered. This is on top of your compensation award.
