Highworth is a market town in Wiltshire, England, located about 6 miles north-east of Swindon town centre. It is notable for its Queen Anne Style architecture and Georgian buildings dating from its pre-eminence in the 18th century. This makes the area popular with visitors interested in the architecture and the age of the town.
Some of the most common accidents in Highworth are slips, trips and falls that often occur in the area. Of course, if you have taken a fall due to your own lack of caution, then it is something you need to chalk up to experience. However, on many occasions people suffer accidents that were not their fault, due to uneven footpaths, negligence in the maintenance of steps and walls and even overgrown plant life can cause undue injury. If safety measures and general upkeep is not maintained, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury.
If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident in Highworth that required you to seek medical attention, and the accident wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to compensation. If your injury occurred in the last three years in Highworth and you have not tried to claim before, take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible for compensation with help from a lawyer in Highworth. Such injury claims can include injuries sustained as a result of:
- A fall on a broken pavement
- A trip due to unruly overgrowth
- A slip down a poorly maintained stairwell
The local council is responsible for ensuring that Highworth is a safe place for you to live and enjoy the local life. If you are badly injured in a slip, trip or fall, you should seek medical attention immediately so that your injuries are officially recorded and gather statements from any witnesses so you can use them as evidence when seeking compensation. You should also photograph the scene of your accident if at all possible to add further weight to your claim.
