Lewes is located in East Sussex and is notable for having its very own castle. It also has a strong tourism industry, partly thanks to its location near the south coast of England. When the last Census was performed in 2011, the population was found to be 17,297. This was an increase of over 1,000 compared to the previous Census. It’s reassuring to know the odds of having a Lewes accident are very long, since this town is very safe and appealing to visit, and also to live in.
Of course, you could pick any town in the UK and you would be able to find a few people who had suffered accidents there. No one ever sets out first thing in the morning and expects to have an accident that day. You simply never know what might potentially happen at any point during the day, though, do you?
What should you do if you are involved in an accident?
Firstly, it is wise to get information from anyone else involved. If there are witnesses, they could help provide a picture of what happened. In some cases, an accident may not involve anyone else at all. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you are at fault and can do nothing about it.
Imagine you are walking across a car park in the middle of winter, for instance. If that car park belongs to a company or a business – think of a supermarket car park, perhaps – it should be gritted to make it safe to walk in. If it isn’t gritted and there is black ice present (or even ice and snow) you could end up slipping over even when you are being careful.
Do you suspect negligence on the part of a third party?
If so, you might wish to consult an expert about your Lewes accident, or indeed an accident you had anywhere else in the country. The good news is this is easier to do than you might assume. Accident Advice Helpline is experienced in handling all manner of claims relating to accidents that were caused by a third party.
