Getting a personal injury lawyer in Chumleigh to help with a roadway or footpath camp site claim
The main hazard that a personal injury lawyer in Chumleigh would deal with on a camp site footpath or roadway would be slips, trips of falls or collisions with vehicles. It may be possible to prove that a camp site owner was to blame for an accident because:
- They did not maintain access roads or pathways in a good condition.
- They did not impose a speed limit on the roads on the site.
- The pedestrian routes were not clearly marked to separate vehicles and people.
- Handrails were not provided on steps.
- Footpaths were not lit adequately.
- There was no clearly marked road system.
- Vehicles and pedestrians were not separated as much as possible.
There will usually have to be a combination of evidence to prove the above which may include witness statements, photographs, sketches or records.
Getting a personal injury lawyer in Chumleigh to help with an amenity bock accident
The main hazard that a personal injury lawyer in Chumleigh would deal with in a camp site amenity block would be slips and trips, electrocution, disease and scalding. Floors can become very slippery in amenity blocks as they are covered in water a lot of the time. This hazard may be averted by providing non-slip flooring in this area. There should also be adequate cleaning procedures to keep the floor as clean as possible. Signage should clearly indicate that the floor is slippery.
Very hot water can prevent a scalding hazard – which can be very dangerous especially for children. Thermostatic control valves at all water outlets would prevent this hazard occurring. Warning signage should also be clearly displayed stating that the water is very hot and that care should be taken.
There is a risk of contracting Legionella in the shower block as the organism can be transmitted in droplets of water (water vapour). Maintaining the boiler according to the manufacturer’s instructions will help to reduce this risk as will running all the showers weekly to avoid any stagnation – which allows over growth of Legionella.
