    No Win No Fee Flint Compensation Claim

    Are you making a no win no fee Flint compensation claim after being injured near water?

    Talk to Accident Advice Helpline if you need to make a no win no fee Flint compensation claim. With many lakes, rivers and streams situated in Flintshire, you don’t have to go to find water in the area. Whilst some people do own land with streams or large ponds, most bodies of water are actually located on land owned by organisations such as local councils.

    In many instances, these lakes and rivers are situated in green areas or in parks so the public can access them easily. Whilst many people enjoy walking alongside rivers, it is generally considered dangerous to try and enter them. In the warmer months, some people do attempt to swim in rivers but this can be extremely dangerous and isn’t recommended. Unlike swimming pools, open water is not restricted and the ground beneath the water can vary significantly. If you attempt to enter a river or lake, you may assume that you will be in fairly shallow water, only to find yourself stranded in deep water within seconds.

    However, staying out of the water doesn’t necessarily mean that you will avoid being hurt or injured. As bodies of water are constantly moving and constantly being affected by rainfall, river banks must be carefully tended to. In some cases, councils are forced to widen river banks to cater for an increased amount of water. If they didn’t do this, it is likely that a flood would occur and people would be hurt.

    If you have been hurt whilst walking alongside a river or lake and you don’t believe that the accident was your fault, it may be possible for you to make a no win no fee Flint compensation claim. If the council, or the people responsible for the water, have failed to take action to make the area safe, there is a chance that they could be held responsible for your injuries and your ‘no win, no fee’ Flint claim could be successful.

    If you have fallen into the water or have become submerged under water, you may suffer from shock, as well as other physical injuries. If, for example, you were in difficulty and had to be rescued, you may have feared for your life. Often, when people have been in such traumatic situations, they can suffer from anxiety or flashbacks afterwards.
