Voted the world’s fourth friendliest city and offering a wide range of excellent shopping venues, attractions and events, Liverpool is also generally described as a welcoming, safe city. This does, however, not mean that visitors do not need to be aware of the risk of accidents.
Spending Christmas in Liverpool
Transformed into a magical wonderland by the annual Snowflake Trail, which offers visitors a spectacle of seasonal window displays, magnificent snowflake sculptures, street art and performers, light projections and festive markets, Liverpool tends to be a bustling, crowded hive of activity in the run up to Christmas. With dense crowds milling around all over the place, it is no surprise that occasionally, slips, trips and falls do occur.
Spending Christmas in Liverpool therefore, means that in order to prevent being injured by trips, slips or falls, visitors should be vigilant and look out for potential trip or slip hazards. Slip injuries could, for example, be caused not only by potentially icy patches (obviously depending on prevailing weather conditions), but also by dropped food items, spilled drinks or wet flooring in shops, restaurants and other establishments.
Trip hazards to avoid while spending Christmas in Liverpool
Injuries by tripping could be the result of dropped or thoughtlessly deposited bags or packages both on the streets and in stores, pubs or restaurants. Being pushed along by crowds could also result in tripping off or over kerbs. There may also be the occasional pothole on roads, pavements or car parks.
Spending Christmas in Liverpool without accidents
In short, both visitors and locals wishing to avoid sustaining personal injuries in the pre-Christmas period need to keep an eye on the ground to avoid potential trip, slip and fall hazards.

There are, however, times when even the most alert locals or visitors suffer accidental injuries. If such injuries were the result of someone else’s mistake, irresponsible behaviour or negligence, the injured party could have a case to claim for personal injury compensation.
