Hazards at the seaside
The amount of visitors that visit the coast every day is astonishing. The heavy footfall does not go unnoticed and here and there there are signs of wear and tear. These signs of wear and tear need to be maintained and properly looked after in order to prevent any accidents from happening.
Accidents can happen anywhere and solicitors in Weston Super Mare say that if any of these accidents are not the fault if the injured party they could make a claim. Whether the accident happens on an upturned paving slab, a stray pothole or a broken railing all these accidents could potentially become a compensation claim.
Solicitors in Weston Super Mare and compensation claims at the seaside
A small side bonus of having an accident at the seaside is the potential amount of eye witnesses to the accident. By collecting their details at the scene of the accident your chosen solicitors in Weston Super Mare can later contact those people to retrieve eye witness accounts.

Being able to prove what happened is crucial to winning a claim for compensation so by having these eye witness statements your compensation claim stands a good chance of being successful.
Making a claim after an accident can be a daunting experience but it shouldn’t put you off from making a claim. Even if you think that you may be partially responsible for the accident you may still be entitled to some compensation.
