Tourism is now a major contributor to the economy throughout Devon and also in Great Torrington. Much has been done to cater for this with a lot of holiday accommodation and activities such as biking, hiking and fishing. Tourism can also increase the risk factor of accidents especially Road Traffic Accidents with many of the country roads being dated and having not been built with today’s vehicles in mind.
Slips, trips and falls are also more common in more rural areas such as Great Torrington, though not always will they be eligible for a compensation pay out. This is because in order to claim compensation your accident needs to be as a direct result of another persons negligence. Slipping on a hillside for example, is unfortunate, but nobody can be blamed for this. Slipping due to an uneven pavement or broken kerb, however, is down to someone else and you will be entitled to seek compensation for this.
If unsure, you can contact us around the clock on our free phone numbers.
Our call handlers deal with over 25,000 enquiries each month. It is clear that many people are very unsure of what they can and cannot claim compensation for. British law states that if you have been involved in an accident, within the last three years, and it was not your fault, then you could be eligible for compensation.
