When you venture out into the Lakes, you do so expecting a rejuvenating sojourn peppered with relaxing walks across lush, striking landscapes. Yet, as with everything in life, your journey isn’t without hazards in the Lake District.
No one likes to put a dampener on your getaway, but it is important to make yourself aware of the hazards in the Lake District so you are able to avoid staycation accidents, which could lead to a travel accident compensation claim.
What are the potential hazards in the Lake District?
To determine hazards in the Lake District, it is necessary to consider the type of holiday you will be taking. What activities will you be partaking in? What risks to your health and safety do these pose to you?
Many people experience holiday accidents in the Lakes due to uneven terrain when simply walking around Windermere and the other delightful nooks and crannies that this area offers.
Beyond this, hazards in the Lake District are typically linked to activities involving boating and water sports on the lakes. What’s more, should you choose to hike out into the countryside, you must ensure that you know your way and wear suitable attire for trekking through the Lakes’ mountainous landscapes.

Depending on the nature of your accident on holiday, liability for the injury or illness you sustained in the Lake District could be placed on a third party.
