Have you had a hiking related accident? You need to speak to the injury solicitors in Chippenham!
Hiking and hill walking are popular pastimes which enable people to explore areas around where they live and discover the natural beauty of their local environment. However, accidents can often happen when you least expect them to and painful injuries may be sustained. If you, or a fellow walker, have suffered a walking injury as the result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be legally entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Keeping safe whilst out walking
There are a number of precautionary measures that you can take in order to reduce the likelihood of being injured whilst out walking.
- always wear appropriate waterproof and windproof clothing to reduce the risk of exposure should you become trapped or lost whilst out walking
- wear sturdy walking boots with a ridged sole that are designed for the rigours of walking over uneven terrain
- pack adequate high carbohydrate based foods to supply the body with calories and energy whilst out walking
- pack enough water to avoid dehydration and sip regularly
- pack a hat and gloves to keep warm
- pack a whistle, mobile phone, OS map and compass
- always take local advice and follow designated paths
- keep dogs on a lead for their safety around livestock
- shut gates after you and follow local signs
- tell someone where you intend to walk and an anticipated time for your return
