Accidents and nature – do you need our personal injury lawyer in Coltishall?
Coltishall is a not very well known village on the River Bure which is west of Wroxham, in the English county of Norfolk. Its location means that it’s nestled within some lovely woodland and nature trails. There are lots of people who enjoy nothing more than a lovely refreshing walk in the great outdoors. Activities such as cycling, running, abseiling and climbing are some of the other activities adventure seekers enjoy partaking in.
Taking part in outdoor activities can mean that you may be more prone to experiencing an accident. If you are part of an organised group, and you’re not looked after properly, you may be able to claim for compensation through a personal injury lawyer in Coltishall if you endure injuries from an accident.
Hypothermia is a common outdoor related accident
It’s no secret that the outdoors can cause a threat to individuals in the winter months. If you take part in outdoor sport activities, or water sports such as white water rafting or canoeing, and you are not provided with the appropriate equipment there are many injuries you can suffer form, including hypothermia. Some common signs of hypothermia include:
- Shivering with pale, cold, dry skin
- Experiencing serious disorientation, or irrational behaviour
- Slow and shallow breathing as if you can’t catch a breath
- In extreme cases the heart may stop and fatalities can be caused.
If you have been involved in some form of outdoor accident, or you have contracted hypothermia and it was not your fault, please take a moment to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to discuss making a claim through our personal injury lawyer in Coltishall.
