With a name like Seascale, you would be forgiven for guessing (entirely correctly, in this case) that it is a location by the sea. In fact, it is a village and it faces the Irish Sea in Cumbria. As such, it is located on the western side of the county. You may also be right in guessing the population is relatively small, since it is a village. Indeed, only around 1,700 people lived here at the time the last Census took place. This is definitely an area where finding a personal injury lawyer in Seascale could prove to be a challenge.
Visiting any seaside place is a great experience, if not one that is affected by the weather! After all, if the wind is blowing in from the Irish Sea, you will definitely feel the bracing effect it has. If you are out walking, it would be advisable to wrap up and wear suitable footwear for the changing surfaces beneath your feet.
Watch out for potholes
When you think of potholes, you probably think of big holes in the road that do more damage to cars than anything else. However, people have to cross roads from time to time, and they would have their attention on any traffic while doing so, more than anything else.
To this end, it isn’t odd to think about the prospect of being injured through the presence of potholes if you happen to be walking across a road anywhere in the country. This doesn’t just apply to Seascale – it can potentially happen anywhere. While councils are responsible for filling potholes, and they typically do a grand job of doing so, there could be isolated incidents where people are injured because they have not seen the pothole that is near them as they are walking.
Could you claim for any injuries you have sustained?
You might want to contact a personal injury lawyer in Seascale if you happened to suffer an injured ankle by tripping in a pothole, or indeed if you’ve hurt your hands or another part of your body in the same way.
