A camping holiday in the beautiful Isles of Scilly (Bryher is the smallest inhabited island) should be stress-free and relaxing. Camping holidays are, by their very nature, simple and straightforward. What could possibly go wrong?
The answer to that question sadly is – plenty. It may even be enough to make you look for a personal injury solicitor in Bryher to sort out your compensation claim.
You can make a claim if you were injured in an accident that was not your own fault and you have two choices of how to find a personal injury solicitor.
You can either look for a personal injury solicitor in Bryher before you leave to go home or you can get back home and then start looking for a solicitor. If you are not sure which would be best then just call Accident Advice Helpline and we will sort it all out for you. We can assign you a personal injury solicitor in Bryher on the day of your accident. You will be able to access this service over the phone – you don’t need to meet the solicitor face to face.
You solicitor will then set about establishing how your accident was caused and who was to blame – here are a few examples.
How a personal injury solicitor in Bryher establishes blame and problems with a camp site layout
If the camp site layout is poorly thought out it can contribute to a fire hazard on site – this is because it allows the fire to spread between tents and caravans. This should have been sorted out when a fire risk assessment was carried out and limits for the minimum distance between tents and caravans should have been set. These should have been communicated to all of the holiday makers and should be rigorously enforced.
How a personal injury solicitor establishes blame and hazardous electrical installations
Electricity is a potential hazard at any location and a camp site is not an exception to this. The key to electrical safety is vigilance – regular visual checks should be made to ensure that electrical installations and equipment such as electrical hook ups and tumble driers are in a safe working condition and are only being used for the purpose for which they were intended. A competent person has to carry out regular electrical testing of some installations.
How a personal injury solicitor establishes blame and problems with shower blocks
One of the chief dangers in a shower block is a slip hazard. It is inevitable that there will be a lot of water inside these buildings and this potential hazard has to be managed by:
- Adopting a design that makes water flow straight down a drain.
- Installing a non-slip floor
- Erecting warning notices
