A historic town situated in the heart of the Midlands, Stafford is popular with visitors for its many attractions including Stafford Castle and other historical sites such as Ancient High House and Shugborough Estate. Historical sites are wonderful for conjuring up an image of the past but where pavements or walkways may be old and uneven they are liable to cause slips, trips and falls.
How can I avoid slips, trips and falls when visiting Stafford?
British weather is subject to very abrupt changes so it is important to be aware of the risks of visiting historical sites in Stafford in times of rainfall. The streets surrounding Stafford Castle are very charming in their historical appearance, but can become slippery when wet. Therefore, it is important to remember to wear comfortable shoes which have a good grip on the sole. With plenty of children running around at the many fun activities on offer at the castle it is important to keep an eye on your own children to prevent collisions and any possible slips and falls which might occur.
Stafford is also home to some wonderful parks, particularly Victoria Park which has a play area with swings and slides and a sand pit for children. It is best to keep a close watch on children playing in the park as over-excitement from all the fun could lead to sudden collisions, trips or falls. There is also a water area and a number of ponds in the park, which while being nice to look at poses a risk for younger children who may inadvertently fall in.
How can I avoid other accidents in Stafford?
When driving to Stafford, especially if for the first time, it is a good idea to avoid a road traffic accident claim by familiarising yourself with the route and areas of the town where parking spaces will be easily accessible. Travelling without a clear route in mind can lead to quick impulsive decisions on the road, putting you and your family at risk of a road accident.
