Funfairs are great fun. Whether it is a touring funfair or one that is in place at the seaside the whole year round the fair can offer a unique and different kind of fun which is a breath of fresh air from the everyday norm.
Despite the glamourous exterior and image funfairs are actually filled with potential hazards. Hazards which can cause some serious accidents which will need the attention of solicitors in Weston Super Mare.
Funfairs and their hazards
Looking around a funfair you can see all the bright lights and music emanating from all the different rides. If you stop and think about it, just how much electricity does it take to power all of those rides?
Electricity itself is a very dangerous hazard which can cause serious harm. Although rubber is used to coat the wires faults can still develop and any individual can still receive a substantial electric shock. This could be fatal to someone with a pacemaker.
As well as dishing out large amounts of power the very same cables provide another reason to cause trouble. Being trailed across the floor the same cables also become trip hazards. In all the excitement of the funfair many cables are not noticeable and could cause some injuries. Either injury caused by the cables could be a compensation claim with solicitors in Weston Super Mare.

Photographs also prove to be very useful. With the use of a camera or a mobile phone photographs of the hazard, injuries and any other relevant item can also aid in strengthening a case for your solicitor in Weston Super Mare to present to the necessary parties.
