    Accident in Grimsby?

    Have you had an accident in Grimsby? Have you been injured as a result of slips, trips or falls? Can you prove you were not to blame? If so, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation.

    Public place accidents in Grimsby

    Grimsby offers a host of public services and facilities and the people in charge of providing these services have a responsibility to comply with the latest health and safety guidelines to prevent public place accidents, such as slips and trips, falls from height and injuries caused by poorly-maintained fixtures and fittings. Shop managers in Grimsby, for example, should take steps to ensure that customers are able to do their shopping without any harm; this may include removing obstructions from the floor, keeping doorways clear and making sure that any spillages are mopped up as quickly as possible.

    Avoiding public place falls in Grimsby

    In many cases, accidents can be prevented with effective health and safety measures; however, sometimes, it is down to the individual to protect themselves from injury. Nobody wants to end a day out with an unscheduled trip to the hospital, so here are some simple tips for avoiding falls in a public place:

    • Wear suitable footwear.
    • Pay attention to the path ahead and watch out for potholes, changes in the level of the surface and rips or tears in carpets or flooring inside shops and restaurants.
    • Watch where you are going; this sounds really obvious, but many people like to listen to music or use their mobile phone while they walk and this increases the risk of accidents.
    • Try to stick to the pavements and use the pedestrian crossings provided.
    • Take extra care when going down the stairs.
    • Report any problems, such as spillages or loose floorboards, to the manager or supervisor.
