Cornwall is a unitary authority and ceremonial county in England, forming the westernmost part of the south-west peninsula of the island of Great Britain. The area is noted for its wild moorland landscapes, its long and varied coastline, its many place-names derived from the Cornish language, and its mild climate. Extensive stretches of Cornwall’s coastline are protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Cornwall has long been a popular tourist destination due to its pleasurable weather and beautiful coastline. Although this area can be interesting and beautiful to explore, it can be all too easy to suffer an accident or injury in rural areas such as this. Unfamiliarity with an area coupled with poor maintenance can often lead to nasty injuries. Anything from a trip over a broken pavement to a fall due to some unruly undergrowth can leave you badly injured and in need of medical attention.
Of course, it is important to be careful. However, when an accident occurs that is not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline we know that sometimes an accident just isn’t your fault and contacting an injury solicitor can help set things straight again.
If your accident was in the last three years, you should check today and see if you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you need an injury solicitor who can help you in making a claim.
If you are badly injured in such an instance, you should seek medical attention immediately as well as gather statements from any witnesses if possible. Do your best to photograph the scene of your accident (even on a camera phone) to add further weight to your claim.
