Staffordshire Moorlands is a local government area in the county, in which is situated the glorious Peak District National Park. If you decide to explore this lovely part of the world, sensible precautions apply, and if you had an accident on a slippery slope, you might only have yourself to blame. However, if you have been injured through some kind of fall in a public place, it could be that there is a compensation claim to answer. Your accident solicitor in Staffordshire Moorlands can advise you. Contact our Accident Advice Helpline team to find out more about the claims process. You can reach them from your mobile, on 0333 500 0993 or 0800 689 0500 (from your land line). Our lines are open 24/7. Call us when it suits you.
Tips for safe hiking and hill walking
Boot Up. Always wear strong waterproof boots, made for the job, and which protect your ankles. Outdoor wear specialist retailers will be able to advise you.
Charge Up. Take your mobile phone with you, and make sure it is fully charged before you set out.
Plan your route. Tell people at home exactly where you are going, and when you expect to return.
Be prepared and provisioned. Carry drinking water and some emergency rations like high-energy bars and chocolate. Some cash in the pocket never hurts. Taxis have a habit of turning up in surprising places, if you’re done with trudging and fancy an easy ride home.
Be sensible. Check the weather forecasts, although in wide-open spaces and on mountains, weather can change in a matter of minutes, without warning.
And finally, remember to enjoy yourself and feast your eyes on the spectacular landscape and your lungs on the intoxicating air. It’s why you set out in the first place.
