Some places have names that make them sound small, don’t they? You could definitely say the same about Church Stretton. While it is a town, it is on the small size, homing just 4,671 people according to the results of the 2011 census. Despite its compact size, it does have a vibrant market, and the last thing you would think of while visiting the area would be to look around for a solicitor in Church Stretton.
When you visit a market, you may not know what to expect. This is certainly true if you have never been to one before. For instance, you might end up looking at several different stalls, all of which are selling entirely different things. From toys to food and clothes to antiques, you never know what might be around the next corner.
Are street markets safe?
Yes, absolutely, for the most part. Market traders want to encourage as many people as possible to buy things, so there is every chance you will be able to enjoy your time browsing around a market. As such, the vast majority of those who visit markets will go home without incident – hopefully with one or two bargains as well.
If you were hurt in some way, it would be vital to find out who was to blame. For example, the stall owner might be at fault if their stall was not constructed properly and collapsed on you as a result. On the other hand, if the market was held in a public place such as a market square or car park, and you were injured tripping over a pothole, the local council may be at fault.
Do you need legal advice?
Even if you did suffer an accident at a market in Church Stretton, you don’t need to find a solicitor in Church Stretton to talk to about the prospect of making a claim. In fact, while it is rare for anyone to be injured at any street market, the location where an accident occurs doesn’t matter.
