Poole is a bustling, lively town that has long been a popular tourist destination due to its superb location on the coast of Dorset. Poole has been a classic seaside resort and maritime base for many years and there are plenty of things to keep visitors occupied here, be it a trip to one of its five glorious beaches, a visit to Brownsea Island, a walk along the quayside, or venturing further afield to nearby Bournemouth and Dorchester.
As with any trip to a busy town like Poole it is a good idea to take some steps before you go to prevent having to claim travel accident compensation.
What kind of travel accident compensation claims occur in Poole?
Poole is particularly popular on hot, sunny days when many visitors flock to the beaches to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. This makes for a lovely day out, but the increase in the number of cars on the road can increase your chances of suffering a road traffic accident.
Similarly, with the increase in the number of people taking in the sights and jostling for space on the beach, it is much easier to suffer a slip, trip or fall when out in public.
What can I do to avoid having a travel accident compensation claim in Poole?
The best way to avoid having an injury on the road in Poole is to plan your journey in advance and get a good night’s rest beforehand to avoid having to drive whilst tired. This will greatly reduce your chances of having a road traffic collision.
Additionally, if you are heading down to the beach for the day or simply just wandering around the town, take care to look where you are treading at all times and keep an eye on young children who in their excitement may be more prone to having a slip or a fall.
