Fairgrounds are great fun for everyone. Usually found at the sea front or on tour around the country fairgrounds offer a welcome break from the everyday norm and allow us to have a little fun. With sideshows and rides and countless burger vans they are a great opportunity to wind down.
However they can also be one of the most dangerous places to be. Although they are fun and enticing there are many hazards which could cause serious injuries. If you have an accident at a fairground you may need solicitors in Westgate-on-Sea.
All the lights and the sounds are appealing and inviting in fairgrounds and the familiar smell of static electricity on the bumper cars is almost intoxicating. However all this electricity needs to come from somewhere. With so much power going in to the light displays and the intricate rides the power supplies hold a very large current which can be fatal.
Solicitors in Westgate-on-Sea advise that although the cables are coated in heavy duty rubber along the floor, these cables can also pose as a trip hazard. Regardless of how well they are coated if they are laying across the ground with no hazard tape or mats to cover them they could be just as dangerous than if they weren’t covered in rubber.
