Hove, part of the city of Brighton & Hove in East Sussex, is considered to be the fancier of the two locations that make up the city’s name. If you suggest to someone who lives in Hove that they actually live in Brighton, they will invariably rely in a rather haughty tone “Hove, actually”. And with good reason. It’s a lovely part of the country. While it may not offer great employment opportunities, it’s just over an hour away from London by train and is home to some great schools.
Like most major cities though, especially those in the south, Hove isn’t cheap. House prices rose 14% in Brighton & Hove between 2013 and 2014. In April 2014, the typical property in the city would have set you back £356,862. If you already live there or can afford these prices, all well and good, but just because you live in an area with high property prices, it won’t mean that you’ll be free from the risk of being injured in an accident that was not your fault.
If you do suffer an injury as a result of an accident that was not your fault while in Hove, you might well be able to retain the services of a top 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitors in Hove with a view to taking action against the individual or organisation that was responsible for you getting hurt, regardless of whether you’re a resident of the city or are just visiting.
Personal injury compensation and solicitors in Hove
Perhaps you contracted food poisoning after visiting one of the many restaurants that line the streets. This can happen wherever you are in the UK, it does not have to be in Hove. If you did and can produce evidence that it was a meal you ate out that was responsible for your condition, a decent 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitor in Hove might be able to win a compensation pay-out on your behalf.
Perchance you were making your way along the path by a seafront, only for a sign that had been left out by a cafe owner to hit you in the back as a consequence of strong wind. As the cafe owner would have had a responsibility to make sure that his sign posed no threat of doing a passer-by an injury in an accident that was not their fault, again, a good solicitor in Hove might be able to help you.
Although you’ll typically have three years to take action against a negligent party after being injured in an accident that was not your fault, it may work to your advantage to strike while the iron’s hot. Call Accident Advice Helpline now if you need solicitors in Hove, just dial 0800 689 0500.
