Types of fall accidents
Fall accidents are quite common in a number of different settings, we have found the most common fall accidents to occur in either the workplace, or while out and about in public. Here are the most common causes of accidents we see:
- Workplace: falling down the stairs, tripping over an obstruction in the workspace and falling due to damaged flooring causing a tripping hazard are all common workplace accidents
- In public: tripping on broken or crumbling pavement or slabs, falling over an obstruction that is not easy to see or tripping down damaged stairs are all common public accidents
These accidents are usually considered the responsibility of the workplace or council; as such if you injure yourself in one of these ways you may be able to claim compensation.
Injuries from fall accidents
Nose injuries in a fall are one of the most common problems we see at Accident Advice Helpline, and though this might not be considered a life-threatening problem nose injuries in a fall are actually quite concerning, as are any facial injuries in fact, and can cause a deal of suffering for the victim, especially if the nose does not repair itself properly and ends up changing your appearance.
Other injuries include brain and head injuries, spinal cord and back injuries, broken bones and internal injuries. To add to the physical injuries, the accident might also cause psychological problems, causing the victim to be unable to live a normal life, potentially meaning they have to change their job.
