Ferryhill was once a thriving mining town, but while the mines are now all closed, the area is still home to over 10,000 people. You’ll find it in County Durham, but while the county is located on the eastern coast of England, Ferryhill itself is further inland. There are many opportunities to enjoy some walks and hikes in and around Ferryhill, and if you take proper care, there should be no need to go looking for an injury solicitor in Ferryhill once you’re done!
There are many footpaths located in this area, many of which are south of the town itself. Whenever you are out walking, it is important to observe rights of way and not to stray onto private land.
Are you safe when out walking?
Many walks all over the country do incorporate some parts of towns and villages. These may provide you with a good starting point, before a particular walk winds off into the countryside or less built-up areas.
You should always take great care when out walking, but this is particularly true if you are walking in a road where there is no pavement, or if you need to cross. Of course, no matter how careful you happen to be, you could always come across a driver who is speeding along with no regard for anyone they might meet. If this should happen to you and you are hit even when you are taking care and observing the Highway Code, there could be a chance to claim compensation.
Recovering from injuries
A pedestrian is certainly no match for a car. Even if someone is driving slowly, they could seriously injure you if they don’t see you or they are driving in a way that ends with you being hit. Multiple injuries are not uncommon for car accident victims, which means you could potentially end up with severe injuries that affect your life for some time to come.
