St Martins is the northernmost populated island of the Isles of Scilly, off the coast of England. It is a quiet and beautiful island, and is mainly popular with hikers and walkers and those wishing to explore the rural beauty of such islands. However, such an environment is one that can also lead to nasty accidents in the form of slips, trips and falls if the area is not properly maintained.
If you have suffered an accident in St Martins that wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to face the consequences for someone else’s negligence. Accidents such as slips, trips or falls due to issues outside of your control such as uneven footpaths or safety measures not being followed mean that authorities (such as the local council) may be liable for your injury.
If you were injured in the last three years in St Martins and you required medical attention as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Our experienced solicitor in St Martins could help you get the compensation you need to help you recover.
Personal injury claims can be as a result of the following:
- A trip on broken pavement
- A fall down a stairway
- A slip on poorly maintained undergrowth
If you are injured in a slip, trip or fall, you should seek medical attention immediately to ensure that your injuries are officially recorded. You should also photograph the scene of your accident if possible and speak to any witnesses. All of this can help your solicitor in St Martins when pursuing your claim.
