South Hams is the name of a government district situated in Devon. It sits on the south coast, and includes several appealing places such as Salcombe and Dartmouth, so it welcomes many tourists each year alongside those who live there full-time. The total population for all these areas comes in at around 84,000. If you were to assess figures for South Hams compensation cases, though, you would find they would be very small indeed.
This is mainly due to the safety of the area, and the hard work done by all those who live and work there to make sure it remains so. Of course, there could always be something that might potentially occur that could cause someone injury, just as might be the case anywhere in the country.
Assessing the risks
It is always a good idea to be as careful as you can be while enjoying the world around you. However, we cannot always avoid accidents. When someone else creates a situation that might potentially lead to an accident, we cannot always make sure we are able to avoid whatever might occur.
To give some examples, an employer may potentially neglect the duties they should fulfil under the health and safety laws. A driver may not take due care and attention when they are out driving on the roads. It might even be the case that a shop owner doesn’t keep their floors nice and clean and free from spillages, thus causing someone to slip over.
Can any of these situations lead to potential compensation?
It is worth noting that compensation claims are by no means unique to South Hams, or anywhere else in Devon. However, you can indeed consider they are rare. It is good to know, though, that you could potentially make such a claim if you have been injured through someone else’s actions.
