Canterbury is perhaps one of the most famous locations in the whole of Kent. Its history reaches far back to Paleolithic times, and is home to Canterbury Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and situated on the site since 597. Many tourists come to Canterbury throughout the year, and most of them will go home with nothing but great memories of their time there. Few will experience different injuries in Canterbury, because the standards there are nothing short of excellent.
Let’s say though that you were to suffer an injury while in the city. What could happen to cause you to suffer in this way? Injuries can potentially occur in road accidents, either if you are driving or if you are a pedestrian. You might even be hurt while visiting a tourist attraction or while shopping locally. Fortunately, such events are incredibly rare and most locations are perfectly safe at all times.
Let’s focus in on one of the incidents you might experience in any city or town, or indeed any location at all. This is the act of slipping over. It sounds simple, doesn’t it, and in fact it can happen very easily. A car park that isn’t gritted in winter could be covered in ice, causing you to slip and hurt yourself, for example.
On the other hand, people slip over all year round, and sometimes it could be because the floor surface hasn’t been cleaned. You could use the local swimming pool and if there is algae forming on the tiles because they haven’t been cleaned, you might slip over and hit your head or otherwise suffer some other injury.
Did you slip over and hurt yourself, and was someone else at fault?
Your primary concern upon slipping over anywhere, either indoors or outdoors, is whether or not you have hurt yourself. Getting your injuries seen to will ensure they heal properly and that nothing goes undetected. You could end up being treated for a hairline fracture you didn’t know you had, for instance.Open Claim Calculator
