The small village and civil parish of Portreath lies on the north coast of Cornwall and is one of a few hedgehog-friendly villages in the UK. Set in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the two golden sandy beaches here are popular with surfers and tourists alike. Although it’s pretty small and rural, there is the potential for accidents to happen here just the same as there is anywhere else in the UK. If you’ve been injured in Portreath, whether you were living and working here or visiting friends, or even in the area on holiday, then a no-win, no-fee* in Portreath injury claim could be just the ticket.
You could find you’re entitled to compensation not only for your injuries but also for any financial losses you have suffered, and this means that you could be in line for a substantial settlement if you have been seriously injured. But it’s also possible to make a no-win, no-fee* in Portreath claim for more minor injuries too, so you should get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline if you think that you might be eligible to make a claim.
Who’s to blame for your accident?
In some cases it’s immediately obvious who is at fault for an accident. For example, if a driver is speeding and hits the back of your vehicle whilst you’re stationary at traffic lights, you have a very good chance of being compensated for your injuries and financial losses. Accidents at work can often be attributed to employer negligence – for example, accidents caused by faulty equipment or machinery or a lack of training. Slips, trips and falls can often be caused by uneven or damaged pavements or flooring and somebody else could be responsible. For example, if you slip on a spillage in a supermarket aisle then the supermarket operator could be held liable for your injuries, even if they are as minor as a sprained ankle and some cuts and bruises.
Tripping on a broken kerb in the village centre could mean a claim against the local authority, whose responsibility it is to ensure that roads and pavements in the area are maintained to a safe standard. Even if you don’t quite feel sure who is to blame for your accident, it’s well worth your while contacting Accident Advice Helpline.
