    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Lawyer in Hurst


    Hurst is a small, but bustling village nestled in Berkshire but don’t let appearance deceive you. This village is home to two large annual shows – a horse show and a large country fayre.

    The summer months of June and August play host to these two shows, swelling the local population considerably on a short term basis but bringing many advantages; many local hotels and B&Bs enjoy increased take up of rooms, along with local pubs, restaurants and eateries enjoying increased sales too.

    With so many other attractions in the locality too, it is the perfect English village in which to spend a week or two.

    Accidents can happen anywhere…

    But there can be dread and catastrophe looming around the corner in the shape of an unwanted accident – add to this heady mix the fact it was as the result of negligence or carelessness on the part of somebody else, and you can see why some of our customers do need the help of our lawyer in Hurst (although accidents can happen anywhere!).

    Festivals, carnivals and county shows – a lawyer in Hurst can help when you’ve been injured

    When people spend summer weekends taking in the delight of local shows, they walk around the show ground, seeking out local produce and enjoying the sunshine, thinking – assuming – that they are safe. They also take for granted their children are safe.

    Although it is our responsibility too to avoid what seem like obvious hazards, when things do go wrong, and you or someone you love is hurt, there is an entitlement in law that you can claim compensation for personal injury.

    Hazards are everywhere but they need to be managed (by the company or person).

    When companies or local committees set up these annual outdoor events, they will perform a vital risk assessment of the day, identifying potential hazards and dangers, as well as offering solutions to these.

    Many people think that when an outside contractor or company is on-site, they are responsible for their own management of health and safety. But, overall responsibility of ensuring the event is safe – and that customers will NOT need the legal services and expertise of a lawyer in Hurst – are the people or group responsible for the actual event.

    These health and safety requirements are part of their insurance requirements and simply must be completed. Hence, anything dangerous will be marked for your attention with instructions to avoid!

    This is the ideal scenario but it does not always work out this way; people do trip or fall at these events and when they do, the injuries they receive can be nasty, as well as being a nuisance and unwanted in their busy lives.

    If this sounds like something that has happened to you – or you have been injured in another kind of accident – our lawyer in Hurst may be able to help. To find out more, all you need to do is call us here at Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
