Earls Court is a London district that falls within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It may be hard to believe today, but this area was once rural in nature. Today it is anything but, providing homes to nearly 10,000 people in the 2001 Census. People have moved here from other countries over the years, leading to its cosmopolitan nature. Injury lawyers in Earls Court are among those who work in the area.
Any busy area that is densely populated may have an increased chance of seeing people being injured in various ways. It is important to note the majority of people who live and work in this area never experience any injuries that are attributable to other people. However, it is good to know advice can be given if this should happen.
Getting around on two feet
While Earls Court is home to numerous bus routes, and can also be found on the London Underground via Earl’s Court and West Brompton, many people choose to get around the area on foot. This does allow you to explore more of the area, instead of missing some of it through being below ground.
Pedestrians usually complete their journeys in complete safety, but in some instances things can happen that can result in a pedestrian being injured. Obviously it is important to obey traffic lights and use proper crossings whenever possible, but even if you do, a driver or cyclist may ignore the signs and end up striking you while you are crossing the road.
