Mawgan Porth is the most delightful of UK holiday destinations. Found in Cornwall, steeped in history as well as sandy beaches, there is no wonder that visitors of all ages simple fall in love with this part of the UK, returning time and time again.
No matter where you are, on holiday or not, you should be safe but whose job is it to ensure that all places are safe for you to go? And who can help you if things go wrong?
Public spaces are places we go often, from walking along the street to taking a trip round our local supermarket. Wherever we go, we make an assumption that someone has checked that these places are safe to not only visit, but use as well.
We also hold this assumption when we visit other places, although unfamiliarity should make us more cautious but our lawyers know that this can also add to the unseen dangers, lurking in places we least expect them.
Take street festivals and carnivals; the Police keep law and order but what other aspects of safety? The trailing cables or the food we buy from food vans?
The local council has the ultimate responsibility to ensure that its residents and visitors alike can safely enjoy all aspects of its towns, cities and villages.
When processes and systems fails, or someone exploits the rules, people can be hurt and this is when our lawyers come in:
- Is the accident or incident was not your fault, you may have an entitlement to compensation. Written in British law for decades, personal injury law is quite clear in this respect – liability (that is, fault) must lie with someone else other than the victim. It may be the council in some public spaces or, if on private owned property, either the business or property owner.
- British law is also clear about injury, or injuries, which as our lawyers will be able to tell you more about, must be significant enough for the person to have sought medical treatment and advice. Some claimants who have been represented by AAH’s lawyers have claimed thousands of pounds for complex and severe injuries, but some people have injuries which impact less BUT, if you were hurt and needed treatment, the entitlement to seeking compensation is open to you
- Likewise, time is also a factor that figures in personal injury law; put simply, the victim must make a claim within 3 years of the date of accident – beyond this, and our lawyers cannot help (even if they really, really wanted to!)
