Three potential accident claims in Covent Garden

Covent Garden is a thriving, cultural hub and a dazzling mix of colours and characters. It’s an exciting and fascinating place to visit but, as with any sort of trip, can be ruined by suffering a serious accident in public.

Avoiding accidents in Covent Garden – slips trips and falls

One of the main things to be wary of on a visit to Covent Garden is the crowds. It is a busy spot all year round and so it’s important that when you go, you know both where you are going and what to expect.

The main dangers of visiting places with large crowds include:

–  Getting pick-pocketed

–  Getting lost

–  Suffering a trip or fall

The best way to guard against these sorts of public accidents is to be well prepared. Keep your valuables close to your person or in a closed bag. Plan where you want to go before you travel and dress accordingly to avoid slips and falls.

Avoiding accidents in Covent Garden – accidents at work

Workers in Covent Garden Market, particularly those who do the night shifts, can employ a number of techniques to stay safe at work. These include:

–  Wearing high-visibility jackets

–  Wearing hats, gloves etc. during the cold months

–  Working in numbers when doing heavy lifting etc.

A large part of avoiding injuries at work is common sense and avoiding unnecessary risks.

Avoiding accidents in Covent Garden – road traffic accidents

Roads crowded with traffic are as synonymous with London as Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, and Covent Garden is no different.

It’s particularly important for first time or occasional visitors to be aware of their surroundings. Not only are there collisions between vehicles to be concerned about, but accidents with cyclists and pedestrians as well.

One of the keys to staying safe on the roads around Covent Garden is to know where you are going and make confident, decisive movements when behind the wheel.

If you do suffer a trip or fall, then you may be able to make a claim under public liability law. If your accident:

–  Occurred within the last three years

–  Caused injuries that required medical attention

–  Was the fault of someone else either through negligence or other means

…then call Accident Advice Helpline on their Freephone service – 0800 689 0500 – to see whether or not you have a case to make.

Their team of experienced professionals are usually able to settle out of court.
