    Accident in Lewisham?


    Accident in Lewisham?

    Lewisham is located in the south east of London and comes under the London Borough of Lewisham. This place was originally recorded as being called Levesham which, in the Saxon era, meant house among the meadows.

    One of its landmarks is the clock tower which was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee in 1897. The town has a lot of history and background and has memorials to eternalise these events. However, with monuments and statues, there is often a higher risk of slips, trips and falls.

    Why do monuments and statues mean more slips, trips or falls may happen?

    Monuments and sculptures are often seen as play items by children and even young adults which can lead to a nasty fall injury if they were to treat it like a climbing frame.

    What other slip, trip or fall injuries could be sustained in Lewisham?

    Lewisham is easy to get around due to its variety of public transport. It has trains, buses and DLR services. But, with all transportation links it is not difficult to sustain a trip injury if you aren’t careful when walking around on the station or platform. The town’s high street is also a centre for slips, trips and falls as well, especially if you are not looking where you are walking. These potential slip, trip and fall claims could happen to you or you may cause someone else a trip injury if you were to fall into them. Lewisham can be very busy at times, so if commuters and visitors are not on the ball, a slip, trip or fall can easily happen.

    How to avoid slips, trips and falls in Lewisham?

    The main thing to remember whilst walking around Lewisham is to look where you are going and always be aware of your surroundings. If you know what is going on around you then you are likely to notice that broken paving slab or that bollard at the edge of the road. This will help minimise the chances of having a slip, trip or fall and may also make you more aware of the architecture and perhaps appreciate your surroundings more.
