When you visit the contemporary location of SoHo New York, you’d be forgiven for wandering mesmerised, and as such experiencing slips, trips and falls. But if a travel accident compensation claim isn’t high on your list of things to do on your return to the UK, be savvy in SoHo and stay safe.
SoHo New York
With a nod to London’s West End, SoHo New York is located to the south of Houston Street, originally popular with locals and tourists alike for its eclectic mix of artist lofts.
Nowadays, shopaholics visit the area to shop the boutiques and stores within the bustling ambience, while culture-seekers can appreciate the inner city regeneration, including its cultural and architectural developments.
Staying safe in SoHo New York
If you have not been to New York before, your first experience of the city can be quite overwhelming. The heights of the architecture and vibrant billboards combined with the hustle and bustle of city life fuses to create a vivacious atmosphere.
Remember to stay vigilant to the dangers around you, employ general common sense and do not allow yourself to become distracted by the excitement of your trip.
- Keep possessions close to minimise the risk of your items being pick-pocketed
- Keep any valuable items in a safe
- Decline any lift invitations and only use registered, marked NYC cabs
- When in your hotel room, always use peep-holes before answering your door
Claiming for a holiday accident
Have you sustained an injury while on holiday, through no fault of your own? When you book a holiday with a UK travel company, they have a duty of care to ensure your health and safety while you travel with them.
Should your holiday accident occur in the air or on land, if it took place during an element of the holiday that your travel company was responsible for – such as your flight, hotel, pre-planned excursions – it is likely that they could be liable for the harm you have suffered.
In this case, you could have an eligible case to claim travel-related compensation.
