Lostwithiel in Cornwall is a town of many festivals and when people accidently sustain an injury at one of them, the solicitors in Lostwithiel may get called into action to help injury victims to raise personal injury claims to obtain compensation. The myriad of festivals that take place here include:
- An arts and crafts festival
- A beer festival
- A cider festival
- A Dickensian evening
- A food festival
- Summer carnival week
There’s plenty going on for one and all, but unfortunately, plenty of opportunity for people to pick up the odd injury too.
Most injuries are minor and of little consequence
Most injuries at these sorts of events are only minor; the odd slip or fall, or the occasional upset tummy. Certainly not the sort of thing one would normally consider raising a compensation claim for.
Some injuries can be more serious in nature
But some accidents can be more serious in nature. A road traffic accident injury for example, in and around the car parks; or a fall taken by someone with osteoporosis who breaks an arm or a leg as a result; or someone with a compromised immune system picking up a mild case of food poisoning, which because of their condition, becomes much more serious than it would with someone who has a healthy immune system.
