To get the most out of your trip to Swanage it is important to take some steps to ensure you remain safe and accident-free when exploring the town and seaside.
How can I avoid a travel accident compensation claim in Swanage?
It is possible to walk along the Jurassic Coast from Old Harry Rocks at Swanage to Orocombe Point in Exmouth, however if you are attempting part of this ambitious 96 mile walk it is important to take some steps to avoid having a travel accident compensation claim. Walking along rocky cliff paths or uneven ground which may be covered in loose stones can often cause a sudden slip, trip or fall. Similarly, if walking along beach paths or steps leading down to the sand which can be covered by water at high tide, the ground may be slippery and liable to cause a fall in public. Therefore, it is important to be aware of your surroundings and use hand rails and proper pathways where provided. This will greatly reduce your chances of suffering from a slip or a fall in Swanage.
