    Compensation for leg injuries from a fall


    A slip, trip or fall can leave you feeling more than just shocked – you could sustain serious leg injuries from a fall, particularly if you are elderly. Falls from height are the number one cause of fatalities at work in the UK, but it’s not just whilst you’re at work that you are at risk of a fall.

    Here are a few examples of other situations that could cause a fall:

    • Unmaintained pavements
    • Falling out of a vehicle
    • Slip or trip on an uneven pavement
    • Fall from height
    • Falling down steps or stairs

    If you or a member of your family has suffered leg injuries from a fall, the good news is that you might be able to claim personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Our professional personal injury lawyers don’t charge a penny upfront for their services and work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis. So you can afford to make a claim, no matter your financial circumstances.

    How did your accident occur?

    If you’ve tripped and fallen because you were wearing shoes with too high heels, that’s really your own fault. But many falls are caused by negligence on somebody else’s part. For example, if you fall through the pavement when it collapses, the owner of the basement which has collapsed or even the local council could be to blame. Leg injuries sustained after a fall from height at work could be blamed on your employer, if they haven’t followed Work at Height Regulations.

    Whether you’ve suffered a complex fracture or even crush injuries from objects landing on you after your fall, we can help you claim personal injury compensation. Since 2000, we have helped hundreds of customers successfully claim, and we’re endorsed by our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen.

    Dangers of falls

    Falls can be dangerous no matter what your age, but elderly people are more at risk of sustaining serious injuries in a slip, trip or fall. That’s because their bones are more brittle, and hip injuries are common amongst the elderly. A hip injury can be very serious and many people never make a full recovery. If your elderly relative has been injured after a fall, or if you have suffered leg injuries, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors today. Our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so there are no upfront fees to worry about.
