The Forest of Bowland, also known as the Bowland Fells, is an area of barren gritstone fells, deep valleys and peat moorland, mostly in north east Lancashire. A small part lies in North Yorkshire and much of the area is in the historic West Riding of Yorkshire. Once described as the “Switzerland of England,” it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) since 1964. The area is used for grouse shooting, walking and cycling, and is popular with locals and visitors alike.
However, in rural areas such as this it can be all too easy to suffer an accident or injury. 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 it is unfair that you should have to suffer because of it.
If your accident was in the last three years, you should check today and see if you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Take our quick and simple 30-second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible for help from a lawyer in Forest of Bowland. Such injury claims can include injuries sustained as a result of:
- A shooting accident;
- A trip due to being pushed or jostled; or

If you are badly injured in such an instance, you should seek medical attention immediately as well as gathering 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.
