Incorporating stunning countryside, ocean views and a relaxed and friendly Welsh attitude, Pembrokeshire is a true beauty spot.
The region is popular amongst those looking to relocate and commute to work and for retirees. The beauty of the region also sees a large amount of tourist traffic pass through every year. With such a variety of citizens and visitors, Pembrokeshire is heavily reliant on the quality, effectiveness and safety of its transport links. For the most part this is maintained very well, but all it takes is one careless person, making one mistake, and there is a risk of serious injury.
A slip or fall at a station can be very dangerous
It is embarrassing when you slip over, especially in public. You are very aware that many strangers just watched you fall and it can be a very humiliating thing to deal with. But if you slip while walking through a train station because nobody has put up a warning sign letting you know the surface is slippery, it isn’t only embarrassing – it can also be incredibly dangerous.
If you are carrying shopping bags, returning home after your weekly shop, you could be unable to get your hands down to break your fall. This can result in your neck, back or head taking the brunt of the impact, which could lead to a variety of serious injuries.
Head injuries, ranging from a mild concussion all the way to brain damage can be sustained by slipping and landing on your head.
If your neck or back takes the full force of the impact, then you could easily suffer a whiplash injury, which can be debilitating in the short term. However your injury could be far more serious, such as a broken vertebrae. Such an injury can have long lasting damage and even cause paralysis or loss of movement in a limb.
