There are few places in the world as famous as New York – the city so exciting they named it twice. The Big Apple; home to Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza, Broadway, and where Macaulay Culkin wreaked havoc in Home Alone 2. Also known as a shopper’s paradise, many Brits fly across the pond just for a weekend of retail therapy. Although the city is safer now than its gritty past in the 1970s, visitors still need to safeguard themselves against threats which could result in accident claims in New York.
New York is an incredibly busy city, making it easy for a pickpocket to grab a wallet from a loose pocket or bag as they ‘accidentally’ bump into you in the crowd.
New York has an underground system like London does, and although they are typically very busy during the day, they can be eerily quiet in the late evening, leaving you vulnerable to attacks.
Accident claims in New York for Falls
Unlike the perpetual summers in California, New York experiences extremely cold winters, with heavy snowfall and icy pavements. The treacherous conditions can make slips, trips and falls all too easy, possibly resulting in fractured or broken bones.
New York is one of the USA’s most susceptible cities to hurricanes, and although they occur less often than in certain other cities, like New Orleans, the location of New York makes it vulnerable to flooding and wind.
The roads in New York are busy, filled with yellow taxis. One risk in the city is being injured in a road traffic accident as a result of a car crash or being hit as a pedestrian resulting in accident claims in New York.
Trips and slips are common, and although always embarrassing they can also be injurious, to the extent that a no-win, no-fee injury claim can be filed.
