    Things to remember in flood situations

    Flooding increasingly seems to be a problem during winter and early spring in the UK. Not only do flood waters wreck households and communities, but they also damage wildlife and the natural environment, sometimes permanently.

    Protect your property if you can

    This can be hard to do if you live in an area prone to severe flooding, but there are some things you can do:

    • Move electrical items and valuables such as TVs, computers, books and precious items to high shelves, or take them upstairs.
    • Use sandbags to block doors wherever possible.
    • Get extra supplies of food, water and essential medication in case you are stranded.
    • Make a note of the numbers of the relevant emergency services for your area.
    • Keep your mobile phone and charger upstairs.

    Getting around

    In seasons of floods, the authorities advise people not to attempt to drive, cycle or walk through flood water. Cyclists can be drowned if they fall off their bike in flood water. Water entering the exhaust pipe of a car can damage the engine, and it doesn’t take much water to wreck the electrics, too. Experts also advise that attempting to walk in even 30 cm of running torrent carries a risk of being swept away, such is the force of the moving water.

    There’s not a great deal property owners can do to prevent their places being flooded, although it is reported that flood defences overall have been more effective recently.

    Injury Solicitors in Lower Slaughter

    If you have been injured whilst attempting to deal with a flood situation, it possibly is just unfortunate, since the majority of people are battling to control the problem. But if some kind of accident happened which you think is attributable to a third party, you may possibly have a case for compensation. If this is the case, call us to ask about injury solicitors in Lower Slaughter, or local to you.
