Skegness is a seaside town on the coast of Lincolnshire and is perhaps best known for being the first town to open a Butlin’s holiday resort in 1936. There’s much more here for tourists than just Butlin’s though; you can take a relaxing walk along the pier, visit the famous Diamond Jubilee Clock Tower built in honour of Queen Victoria, visit the nearby Tower Gardens, or take the children to the fairground rides and amusement arcades on the seafront. Whatever you decide to do in Skegness, ensure that you take some steps to keep you and your family safe from having to make a travel accident compensation claim.
What type of accidents occur in Skegness?
The fairgrounds and amusement arcades that the Skegness seafront is famous for can make a great day out for the kids but they can also provide many slip, trip and fall hazards. If taking the children for a day out at the seaside, keep a close eye on them and ensure that they don’t get too carried away in their excitement and have an unwanted slip or fall.
British weather is unpredictable and in wet weather the streets around the famous clock tower and paths at the Tower Gardens may become slippery and liable to cause a fall in public. Therefore, try to visit Skegness on a sunny day, and if rain does look likely wear sensible shoes to avoid suffering a personal injury.
