    Accident in Southend?


    There are actually quite a few places called Southend in the UK but one of the more common ones that many people know is in Essex. Simply due to the fact it is located in a busy city it can get very busy and such accidents as slips, trips and falls can happen.

    What type of slips, trips or falls can occur in Southend?

    There are several ways you can sustain a slip, trip or fall injury whilst visiting Southend. The trip injury could be caused by something as simple as debris on the ground, to a corner of a pushchair or even another tourist. More serious slips, trips and falls can happen on the underground especially during peak times. This is when a simple trip or fall could become very serious if you are too close to the edge of the platform.

    How to avoid a slip, trip or fall injury in Southend

    The main thing to remember whilst walking around Southend is to always look where you are going. If you are focusing on where you are going the chances of sustaining a slip, trip or fall injury decreases greatly.  Also, make sure you are aware of those around you, this will not only make you more observant to suspicious people lurking about trying to pick pockets but it will be easier to prevent that slip, trip or fall as you may be able to pre-empt a possible hazard.

    When travelling out of London to Southend, in order to help prevent a slip, trip or fall injury, avoid travelling at peak times if you can. However, if you have to travel then make sure you are standing far away from the edge of the platform so that if you do have a slip, trip or fall it won’t result in you falling on the tracks.
