    Common injuries in Hyde Park

    Hyde Park is one of London’s most notorious green spots. With summer fast approaching, many people will be hoping to enjoy al fresco picnics and lazy days at the park. If you’’re planning a visit to Hyde Park, it’’s a good idea to bear some health and safety tips in mind to prevent accidents, such as slips, trips and falls.

    Common injuries in Hyde Park

    Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of accidents in public places, such as parks. Wet weather, crowds and obstacles, such as litter, can increase the risk of slips and trips.

    Playing sport may also increase your risk of getting injured in a public place. Injuries that may arise from slips, trips and falls can include:

    • Broken bones
    • Ligament and soft tissue damage
    • Dislocations
    • Bruising
    • Cuts and grazes
    • Head injuries
    • Internal bleeding

    If it’’s warm outside and the sun is shining, there may also be a risk of sunburn and heat stroke. Wasp and bee stings are also more common in the summer months.

    Staying safe in Hyde Park

    If you’re hoping to enjoy a relaxing day at Hyde Park, or a fun game of Frisbee with friends, here are some simple safety tips:

    • Watch out for bikes and horses

    Who is liable for accidents at the Hyde Park?

    If you’’ve been involved in a public place accident, there is a chance that somebody else may be liable for your injuries. Local authorities have a duty to ensure that public parks are safe. If you believe your accident was caused by negligence on the part of the council or another organisation, you may wish to find out more about claiming public liability compensation.

    If you slipped on a damaged paving stone, or you were injured as a result of sitting on a broken bench, for example, you may have a case for personal injury compensation.

    If you do wish to make a no-win no-fee* claim, Accident Advice Helpline can process your claim and take over all the stress and hard work for you. We have over 15 years’ experience in the claims industry. Call us now on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
