The small village of Umberleigh was formerly a large manor within the historic area of Tawton, but today it lies in North Devon in England. The manor house of Umberleigh and the ruin of Umberleigh Chapel are important historical buildings within the village and are popular with visiting tourists. However, perhaps due to the age of the village, accidents such as slips, trips and falls can be a common occurrence.
What should you do if you experience an accident in Umberleigh?
If you have suffered a slip, trip or fall in Umberleigh, the accident may not have been your fault, but instead many have been caused by uneven ground or poor maintenance of the local area. In such instances, you may find that the local council is to blame for your injury. If you have suffered an accident in Umberleigh that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation with help from a solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline.
