Ripon in North Yorkshire is a charming cathedral city located right in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside. The town itself was founded over 1300 years ago and has historically been a market town, and due to the fantastic Ripon Cathedral it is the fourth smallest city in England. Ripon is also located just three miles from UNESCO World Heritage Site Fountains Abbey, one of the largest and best preserved Cistercian monasteries in England which brings hundreds of visitors to Ripon each year. There is no shortage of historical sites to visit here, as well as the sweeping Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors which are right on Ripon’s doorstep, however it is important to take some steps to prevent suffering any personal injury while exploring Ripon.
What kind of accident claims occur in Ripon?
While the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors provide ample opportunities for country walks and fresh air, walking over naturally uneven ground can lead to a slip, trip or a fall. Similarly, many of the historical attractions near and within Ripon are majestic and fascinating to explore, but all that looking up and not watching where you are putting your feet can increase your chances of suffering a fall in public.
Additionally, public transport facilities are often impractical and inadequate for sightseeing in rural areas of the UK like Ripon, so it is likely you will be doing your travelling by car. While this is great for saving time and giving you more flexibility in what you can visit, it also increases your chances of suffering a road traffic accident.
How can I avoid having an accident in Ripon?
Often taking some simple and easy steps such as wearing sensible footwear, staying aware of your surroundings, and planning your car journeys in advance will greatly lower your chances of suffering a personal injury in public.
