Morecambe is in Lancashire, and benefits from being on the far west of the county. This puts it in Morecambe Bay, a seaside location that is popular with tourists. Nearly 35,000 people were found to be living here in the last Census, but it is likely to have increased since then. The size of Morecambe means it may not be as hard to find a personal injury lawyer in Morecambe as it might be in some other far smaller areas.
The area benefits hugely from tourism, not least because of its attractive promenade. There is a retail park and a shopping centre, for those who wish to spend some money. Additionally, it benefits from sitting at the bottom end of the Lake District National Park. This too opens the area up to many other tourism possibilities and days out for those staying in the area.
Walking along the promenade
This is a relaxing and popular activity for many people staying in a variety of seaside locations, including those at Morecambe. It is the duty of the council to ensure this area is safe and pleasant to use, and does not pose any danger to anyone who happens to be using it. Fortunately, this is typically the case wherever you go around the coast of the UK. A promenade can bring in tourists and therefore revenue for the town concerned.
Of course, there are times when people slip, trip or fall, and this does not necessary mean anyone else is at fault. With that said, if there is a clear trip hazard, or something that caused the accident to happen, there could be a chance that negligence is to blame. The difficulty is in proving this.
What should you do if you are caught up in a similar mishap?
Mishap might be a strange word to use if you are left with injuries that are painful and debilitating in some way. If this happens at Morecambe, a personal injury lawyer in Morecambe might be of use. However, if you decide not to get legal advice until you return home (assuming you were only visiting the area), you may wonder what you can do instead.
The answer is to call Accident Advice Helpline. It doesn’t cost a thing, and the number is 0800 689 0500. Make sure you find out more today while there is still time.
