With a population of some 120,000 people, Gateshead is ranked as a city – and the most populous location within the borough of Gateshead. It sits almost exactly in the middle of Tyne and Wear. Anyone looking for an accident lawyer in Gateshead shouldn’t have too much trouble finding one once they start searching for someone specialising in this field.
Accidents of any kind are rare, thankfully. With that said, some people do end up getting injured every day. The numbers are small across the entire country, but you never know whether you could end up being involved in an incident that leaves you with injuries. Slips, trips and falls are easy to suffer from in this way.
Slips, trips and falls
These are among the most common accidents suffered by people in all kinds of ways across the whole country. Many slips, trips and falls can be avoided completely if the proper steps are taken to ensure this happens. However, while health and safety laws are in place to help keep people safe, there are instances where things go wrong or where someone neglects to follow the laws as they are intended.
You might slip on ice that hasn’t been cleared from a car park. Maybe you could trip over a hazard in a shop that should have been dealt with but wasn’t. Perhaps you’re working on a building site and you suffer a fall because the area you were working in wasn’t protected to help prevent falls from taking place. There are all kinds of other examples that could be cited in similar situations as well.
