Bamford is a small village with a population of around 1,100. It is in the Peak District in Derbyshire, and is one of the smaller parishes towards the north of the county. Since it is always harder finding a lawyer of any specialism in a small village, you’d imagine finding a lawyer in Bamford would not be without its challenges. We’ll address those in a moment, but first, let’s see why you might consider speaking to a lawyer anyway.
We’re focusing on a type of lawyer here – namely one who deals with cases where people have suffered personal injuries. It is important to recognise you could only consider a claim where someone else was the cause of those injuries, and you were an innocent party in what occurred. Most of the time, it’s easy to tell whether this would apply to you, but if you need assistance, a personal injury lawyer is the person to speak to for those important answers.
Accidents while walking
While many people drive or take public transport to get around, walking is something most of us do to some extent – some more than others. If you’re a walker, you may go on walking holidays, or simply enjoy getting around on foot for the exercise. While this is usually a safe activity to do, there are times when you can be injured while doing it. Sometimes, this could be because you didn’t take proper care and didn’t pay proper attention to where you were going. However, not every accident is the fault of the walker.
For example, if you were walking through a park and the path was not maintained properly and there was a hole in it that was very difficult to see, you could easily catch your foot in it. This might lead to a sprained ankle, or maybe even injuries to your hands or face, if you fell and landed very awkwardly. Another example might be a situation whereby a driver doesn’t take proper care and either mounts the pavement and hits you, or doesn’t stop when they should to let you cross the road – perhaps at a proper crossing point, for example.
