Boston is a delightful medieval market town situated on the east coast of England in Lincolnshire. Indeed, it is the ‘original Boston’ of Massachusetts in the United States, which was so named after many Bostonians set up home there. There are many things to do for families and history fans here including a walk around the port, a visit to the bustling twice-weekly markets, or a trip to ‘the Stump’ more formally known as St Botolph’s Church. This fascinating church dates from the 14th century and its interesting nickname derives from its tall tower which at 83 metres high can be seen for many miles around Boston, and offers visitors magnificent views of the town and surrounding countryside. If you are planning a trip here you will find plenty to keep you occupied, however, it is a good idea to take some steps to prevent suffering a travel accident compensation claim while exploring the town.
What kind of travel accident compensation claims occur in Boston?
One of the most common travel accident compensation claims that occurs in towns like Boston comes from having a slip, trip or fall in a public place. This can often be the result of walking over uneven ground and the dangers of this are exacerbated in wet weather. Therefore, if you are spending the day walking around Boston, or attempting the 239 steps to the top of the tower, be careful to remain aware of your surroundings at all times and use handrails where provided. Try to avoid wearing impractical footwear which may leave you more liable to suffer a slip or a fall.
