    Accident in Scarborough?


    Scarborough is a town located on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire and is well known for many things including the ruins of an 11th-century castle on one of its cliffs. This town mixes old with new and attracts many visitors each year. However, the town is not without its accidents and Scarborough has its fair share of slips, trips and falls.

    How is a slip, trip or fall caused in Scarborough?

    There are several ways a slip, trip or fall can happen in this town. Perhaps the most likely is through tripping up near the historical sites. This may be because the ground and monuments are slowly worn away by the weather and time so the ground will never be even around these areas thus potentially causing a bad trip injury.

    Another cause of a slip, trip or fall in Scarborough is simply through the amount of visitors and people who live in the town. During the summer, this can be a very busy place and with holiday makers and residents all visiting the same places, this can cause a potential trip hazard if people are not looking where they are walking.

    How can I prevent myself from sustaining a trip injury whilst here?

    The main thing to remember in order to prevent a slip, trip or fall injury is to always stay alert and look where you are going. With beautiful parks and historical ruins it is easy to get distracted but if you start looking elsewhere and continue walking you may sustain a nasty trip injury.

    Other than this, avoid the peak times. If you really want to enjoy what Scarborough has to offer without all the tourists, visit the town during the off peak season which will not only be quieter but will be easier to enjoy the attractions at a more leisurely place.
