London is a great place for shopping. There are so many different markets and shopping centres from Camden market to Westfield. However, one of the most popular shopping locations in London is Carnaby Street. Located in the West End, it is great for fashion lovers and shopping addicts alike.
As this is such a popular shopping street there are certain dangers and certain hazards which can cause such accidents as slips, trips and falls.
How can a slip, trip or fall occur in Carnaby Street?
There are several ways in which a slip, trip or fall can happen in this famous shopping street. Some of the most common causes are other people not looking where they are walking and causing you to sustain a trip injury. This could be through leaving a pram or trolley in the middle of the street to simply walking into you. As well as this, slips, trips or falls can occur from uneven pavements or spillages on the ground causing painful injuries.
How can I avoid sustaining a slip, trip or fall injury?
The key to avoiding a slip, trip or fall injury is to be aware of those around you and your surroundings at all times. If you make sure you are focussed on where you are walking you can avoid that pushchair left out in the pathway or that loose paving slab thus preventing a trip or fall injury.
Also, if you are aware of those around you it will make you more alert to thieves and pickpockets so you will not only avoid slips, trips or falls but also potentially avoid being robbed.
