Cornwall has long been an immensely popular tourist destination in England and it is no surprise that Truro is the centre for leisure and culture in Cornwall due to its many attractions. The city itself is a historic market town situated in the centre of western Cornwall and home to a beautiful cathedral and a wide variety of shops, cafés and bistros. The Royal Cornwall Museum is also situated here where you can find a wealth of information about Cornish history and culture. Additionally, the coast is never far away in Cornwall and Truro is a great base from which to visit the rich coastline of the South-West. If you are planning a trip to Truro, ensure that you take some steps before you set off to protect you and your family from suffering a travel accident compensation claim.
What kind of accidents occur in Truro?
Truro’s many cobbled streets are a delight to walk around, however they will become slippery and wet in bad weather and may cause you to suffer a slip, trip or fall in public. Additionally, where paving such as cobbled stones are uneven it leaves visitors more liable to suffer from a trip or a fall. In order to avoid yourself or a member of your family having a slip or fall in Truro wear comfortable shoes when walking around and avoid stepping out in bad weather.
Additionally, if driving to and from Truro, the twisting country roads surrounding the city may leave you more liable to suffer a road traffic accident. In order to avoid having a car crash or a personal injury on the road take some time to familiarise yourself with the city on a map beforehand and use a satellite navigation system if you are unsure of your route.
