The small town of Barnwood in Gloucestershire, England is home to the beautiful Barnwood Arboretum. The arboretum consists of an enclosed woodland area that is cared for and conserved by Gloucester City Council alongside the Friends of Barnwood Arboretum. The Arboretum provides its visitors with various habitats, for example, grassland and wetland, and is set amongst a collection of mature native and exotic specimen trees.
Are you the injury victim of a fall in Barnwood?
The Arboretum proves a popular place to visit, and it is made even more so as the Friends of Barnwood Arboretum also organise a wide range of events throughout the year to encourage local citizens to use the area in an educational manner. However, as can happen in any uneven or rural area – accidents do happen. Public areas that are not properly tended can easily become hazardous and cause slips, trips and falls. If you are the victim of a fall in Barnwood, in which you were injured and you think the local authority is to blame, you could be entitled to compensation.
Anything from tripping and falling on a badly maintained footpath, to slipping on a wet floor and getting injured, can be sufficient cause to register a compensation claim with the local authority or the owner of a store, if you suffered an injury that required medical attention.
It is the responsibility of local councils and the owners of premises open to the public to make sure that these areas remain hazard free. If you get injured as the victim of a fall in Barnwood,(or anywhere else here in the UK), these authorities can be held liable and can be sued for financial compensation, and this is where Accident Advice Helpline can be of assistance.
