Having fun in the sun is what having a trip to the seaside is all about. Getting away from it all just for the day and having fun in a way you can’t normally do on a daily basis is not only refreshing but also a great way to let off steam.
However any trip away, even if it is for the day, can turn upside down if you have an accident. If you are injured through no fault of your own you may need solicitors in Carmarthen.
Hazards at the seaside
Despite the tranquil look of the seaside there are many hazards which could potentially cause accidents. The high amount of footfall which uses the seaside throughout the year does take its toll and signs of wear and tear can show up.
Walking along the promenade seems harmless enough but solicitors in Carmarthen point out that since this is where a lot of the footfall resides then it is likely this is where a lot of accidents can happen. Upturned paving slabs or potholes can cause injuries and a lot of pain as well as damaged railings which could collapse. Either of these incidents could result in a compensation claim.
Claiming with solicitors in Carmarthen
After your accident, making a claim may be the last thing on your mind but it is always important to act sooner rather than later. If there are any witnesses to your accident, get their contact details if you can so that they may later be contacted by your solicitors in Carmarthen in order to give statements.
Photographic evidence can also be very useful. Having pictures of the hazard, the surroundings and any other relevant item to the accident can really help to strengthen the case. The other party will find it difficult to argue something that you have in print.
If you have had an accident in a public place you may be entitled to some compensation. Many people don’t claim on public accidents and lose out. You could walk away with some compensation money for your accident and we can help you get it.
