Ferryside is a village situated on the coast in Carmarthenshire, Wales and close to many golden sandy beaches meaning it’s a popular tourist attraction during the summer months. Ferryside was once at the heart of the cockling industry with 650 tonnes of cockles being collected annually.
Surprisingly for a job so seemingly innocent it has bought Ferryside to the front pages of many newspapers for wars over the cockle picking turf as there was no license needed for this and the industry went many years without being monitored. This led to the exploitation of migrant workers and the government put a stop to it in the early 2000s.
Like the abolishment of the cockle picking, it needed to be brought to the relevant authorities attention in order to be rectified. It is the same for accidents and injuries. If they go unreported then the hazards which are causing these incidents cannot be rectified. As accredited lawyers, our lawyer in Ferryside have the authority to make changes through UK law. We can have all circumstances looked at which surround your personal accident, what ever this may be.
The most common kind of accidents and injury cases we see are slips, trips and falls these can have varying effects on the victim and are usually as a result of someone else’s negligence – broken kerbs with no barriers or warning signs, cracked pavements left unfixed, trees left in unsafe conditions for example these are all easily rectifiable and yet are the common causes for accidents according to our lawyer in Ferryside.
If you have fallen victim to an accident in a public place that was not your fault then the chances are someone else is to blame. Councils, employers and drivers all have insurance to cover compensation claims, they all know what safety standards they by law must adhere to and if they have failed to do this they have not only let you down, they have broken the law and for this reason you are legally entitled to financial compensation
