Canterbury is one of the major settlements in Kent. It is a cathedral city with plenty of history, and it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which should tell you something about the history of the area in itself. Back in the modern day, though, some people have sustained injuries while visiting the city. While things like this are incredibly rare, the people who go through these experiences may sometimes consider making a Canterbury claim for damages.
Let’s be clear about one thing before we go on – Canterbury is a beautiful city and a very safe one to visit. But as we all know and recognise, you simply never can tell when an accident could possibly happen, much less if it is going to happen to you.
Examples of what might potentially occur
It won’t surprise you to discover that slipping over or tripping on a hazard are among the more common incidents that can lead to injury for those unfortunate enough to suffer them. There are other things that can occur too, such as a fall – even on a flat surface rather than from a height – and injuries incurred in road accidents.
It always pays to be alert to your surroundings, particularly if you are visiting an area you are unfamiliar with. Paying particular attention to roads, traffic lights and pedestrian crossings is very important if you are walking around and you wish to cross the road safely. Of course, even if you are driving, you need to be alert to what is going on around you.
