Have you tripped up while checking your phone, fallen off a treadmill or had a DIY accident? If so, you’re not alone.
National Accident Helpline is launching the first ever Accident Awareness Week on Monday 9th November to highlight the avoidable accidents that befall millions of people in the UK each year.
From the comical to the serious, this week aims to get people thinking about how they can look after themselves and avoid some of the hazards that modern life throws our way.
The week will kick off with a story about accident-prone Brits, and keep your eyes peeled for something special on Friday the 13th – a superstitious day for some but not always unlucky!
