High Bickington is a small rural village in Devon, England. The village still remains largely unspoilt and retains much of the character of an isolated rural country village, including many thatched cottages, cobbled pavements and narrow streets.
Some of the most common accidents to occur in such rural areas are slips, trips and falls. Of course, these can easily occur due to human error and lack of caution, but sometimes a nasty slip or fall is not your fault, and can leave you with an incapacitating injury to deal with.
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. On many occasions, people suffer slips, trips and falls in the countryside due to uneven footpaths, negligence in the maintenance of steps and walls and even overgrown plant life. If safety measures and general upkeep is not maintained in High Bickington, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible for assistance from a lawyer in High Bickington.
If your accident was in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you should check today and see if you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible for a lawyer in High Bickington. Such injury claims can include injuries sustained as a result of:

The local council is responsible for ensuring that High Bickington is a safe place for you and your family to enjoy.
