    A day at the funfair is a great activity to share with a group of friends of with your family. With amusements, rides and sideshows to try your luck at there’s no end to the amount of fun you can have whilst being absorbed by all the lights and sounds around you. A specialist injury solicitor in Sunderland would say that an accident will happen when you least expect it, and surely enough accidents at funfairs are not that uncommon.

    Hazards at a funfair

    Despite being attractive and amazing to look at, all the lights involved with the rides and the funfair itself all need to powered from somewhere. As you walk around the fair it is highly likely you will see signs warning of a high voltage of electricity at some of the rides. Although the warning on the rides is apt, you also need to be wary of the cables and generators around the fair.

    A specialist injury solicitor in Sunderland says cables across the floor can be dangerous because of the electricity running through them, but also because they are a significant trip hazard. Though mats are used to cover them they can still be a hazard if not covered properly.

    Claiming with a specialist injury solicitor in Sunderland

    Making a claim for an accident which happened in a public place like a funfair can be useful. Public places have many people in attendance so there are bound to be witnesses to the accident. These eye witnesses can give statements to your specialist injury solicitor in Sunderland who can then use the information as a part of your case.

    At the time of the accident you can gather contact details from the witnesses and your solicitor will then follow up by taking statements. In addition to the witness statements your solicitor may also be able to get any CCTV footage and any photos taken on phones by yourself or the witnesses.
