    Most dangerous places to take a selfie: Tyrol Platform, Austria

    The selfie is most definitely taking over the social media world. It has become such a familiar concept and such a typical part of everyday life that 2013 saw the addition of selfie to the English dictionary, followed in quick succession by the birth of the selfie stick.

    While we are all busy getting snap happy, slips, trips and falls do occur. It is too easy to become distracted by capturing the perfect shot, and momentarily forget about issues such as uneven flooring or small steps that can leads to slips and trips while you are out and about.

    Dangerous selfie spots: Tyrol Platform, Austria

    We’ve all seen some of the worst selfie slip-ups go viral; falling over in public and being struck by flying objects are top of the internet giggle list for procrastinators. One thing is for sure though, as the popularity of the selfie increases, even those opposed to the phenomenon can’t help but make a click when in breath-taking locations.

    The Tyrol Platform in Austria is definitely an optimum selfie spot. With the look of a high-dive platform, 10,500 feet above ground level at the top of Stubai Glacier, there aren’t many people who would say this doesn’t meet the spec for a striking selfie.

    That being said, when in unfamiliar places – especially those covered in ice and snow – it is important that we remain aware of our surroundings to avoid slips, trips and falls, as well as other accidents in public.

    Who is to blame when you are injured in public?

    When you are out and about it is inevitable that accidents in public do happen from time to time. Human error and lapses in concentration guarantee that every once in a while we’ll trip up along the road.

    That being said, if you feel that you have sustained an injury due to a public accident that you believe is the fault of a third party, you could have a case for personal injury compensation.

    Whether you are close to home or holidaying far away, there is always someone responsible for the area in which your accident occurred. If it was poorly maintained or there is an issue there that caused your injury, you could have an eligible case to claim.
