Bassenthwaite is a village towards the north-western region of Cumbria. It has a population of just under 500 people, according to an estimate taken in 2011. It is often viewed as a typical English village, and there are no shops in the area, so residents need to travel out to nearby settlements to buy whatever they need. Similarly, this means you wouldn’t find any injury solicitors in Bassenthwaite, instead needing to go elsewhere to find someone with this speciality.
You would hope never to need to speak to someone who specialises in personal injury claims anyway, but if you did, this might happen because of a recent accident you’ve had. Among all the types of accidents people might experience, trips are one of the more common scenarios that can potentially occur.
Have you tripped and sustained an injury recently?
We’ve all tripped over things occasionally, and sometimes it happens simply because we were not looking closely enough at where we were putting our feet. For example, we might be rushing to get somewhere and we don’t look where we are going, tripping up a step as we go. But sometimes, things like this happen even when we do take care. When this occurs, we can be frustrated at being hurt when it wasn’t our fault.
Trips can potentially lead to falls, and when this happens it can mean we suffer injuries that could very easily have been avoided. For example, we might trip over a trailing cable in a shop that should not have been there. If we fall awkwardly, it is very easy to break one or more fingers, or maybe a wrist, in mere moments. If that cable hadn’t been there, we wouldn’t have tripped and suffered that injury. And there are other tripping hazards that should be dealt with and removed or made safe in another way, too. Shops, offices, and public places should all be free from potential hazards like these, and if they are, fewer people would be in situations whereby they have been injured by tripping over something.
