Set in the north-east of London, Waltham Forest is a place of contrasts, with marked differences between the north and the south. The northern part is well known to be a place of green open spaces and affluence, with an abundance of parks, reservoirs and playing fields.
To the south the landscape is predominantly urban in design, with built up areas and a more ethnically diverse population. Epping Forest, the inspiration for countless famous writers including Charles Dickens, Ben Johnson and Lord Tennyson is found here and green areas in total cover about a fifth of the borough.

The potential for accidents exists everywhere, irrespective of where you live, but hazards are especially prevalent in places where other people have behaved negligently or dangerously. Though the likelihood of being injured is higher in a sprawling metropolis, green open spaces also carry risks of injury. Waltham Forest ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can help you if you have been injured in the following ways:
- Playing fields – a great many injuries are caused by problems with surfaces which regular inspection and maintenance can address and correct. Poor drainage, obstructions, surface quality and surface type can affect the performance and safety of real or artificial sports fields and pitches. Injuries can occur when players slip or fall, which may lead to dislocations, fractures or sprains and strains.
- Forests – cycling tracks offering a chance to ride off road can be problematic if those responsible for their upkeep fail to notice erosion, holes or obstacles. Fallen trees or large rocks on trails may lead to collisions resulting in concussions, lacerations or spinal damage.
