Burton-upon-Trent, also known as Burton-on-Trent or simply Burton is a town running alongside the River Trent in East Staffordshire. This is a town which has a lot of history. It is mainly known for its brewing of beer and the abbey. However, when it comes to visiting the town there are several potential hazards to be aware of including slips, trips or falls.
What types of slip, trip or falls occur in Burton?
A common slip, trip or fall injury in the town can be caused by uneven ground. As this town has a lot of history not all roads and paths are perfectly level as there are many cobbled areas amongst other materials.
As well as this, as this town is famed for its brewery a lot of visitors come to sample the beer and this can cause severe impairment of senses. The more impaired the senses are the less balance you have and the more likely you are to sustain a slip, trip or fall injury.
How to avoid a slip, trip or fall whilst there
The best recommendation is to always look where you are going and always be aware of your surroundings. If you do that you are more likely to the see that loose slab or that rock on the ground which could have caused you a nasty trip injury.
Finally, if you do find yourself sampling a bit too much beer and find yourself a bit unsteady on your feet there are several options you have to prevent a nasty slip, trip or fall. Get someone else to help you home, sober up a bit before leaving or if you need to get home then take extra care when walking to avoid a slip, trip or fall claim.
