As the selfie craze takes over the social media world, the competition to post the most original picture to your timeline continues.
While, generally speaking, it is harmless to take selfies, it is essential not to get too distracted and experience an accident in public. Slips, trips and falls, whether you are at home or away can all too easily happen if you have a lapse of concentration.
Risky selfie spots: Huntington Ravine, New Hampshire
Located in New Hampshire at the heart of the White Mountain range, Huntington Ravine is glacial cirque in the USA. Standing an impressive 3,392 feet above ground level, only one hiking trail leads through the area, as the trek requires numerous difficult scrambling moves.
Due to the weather conditions of the cirque, the paths aren’t available until late spring to early summer each year. While the snow tipped, ice cirque is a magnificent sight, the dangers of exploring the area make it one of the most dangerous places in the world to take a selfie.
No doubt, a snap here will impress your friends and followers, however, it is imperative that you stay aware of your surroundings to avoid fatal slips, trips and falls.
Placing blame for your public accident
Wherever you sustained your injuries in public, whether abroad or in the UK, if you believe that your accident was someone else’s fault, you may want to claim personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.
When an accident occurs due to a problem with the public facility or area you are using, the owner of that establishment or land could be liable for the public accident you experienced.
Claiming compensation for public accidents can be complex, and so seeking advice from a law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, can help simplify and streamline the claims process.
