Birkenhead is a town located on Merseyside near Liverpool. It is famous for its ship building and its sea port. This is a popular destination for tourists as it has plenty to see and do including an extensive travel network from trains and trams to boats and even planes. However, travel accidents can and do still happen in this sea faring town.
What types of travel accidents happen in Birkenhead?
As the main focus for this town is its port and other seafaring items this can be a focal point for many travel accident claims. This could include falling into the water, tripping over near the edge of the port and sustaining a nasty travel injury or even an accident caused whilst on a boat.
On dry land one potential hazard or travel accidents is other tourists. The reason they can often cause a travel accident is because they are too busy admiring the town and rushing from place to place to really see what is ahead of them which can mean it is not uncommon for them to bump into someone, sometimes causing a travel injury.
