Falling over is a surprisingly common accident which has happened to many of us at one time or another. Yet, falling over and getting a serious injury is not as common, even for those of us who are more clumsy and fall over regularly. If you have fallen over and you don’t think you are to blame for it, then you could be entitled to compensation if you have become injured as a result. To find out more about your rights, speak to one of our trained advisors today.
Injuries which result from
a bad fall
Falling over can lead to many different kinds of injuries, with different levels of severity. You may have been lucky to just walk away from a fall with a graze or a bruise but for some unfortunate victims they may have been left with something a little more serious. Bad falls can result in bone fractures or dislocations. Victims may even land on an object, causing internal bleeding.
Accidents like these may result in surgery or require casts, rehabilitation and medication. If you were injured in a fall and needed medical attention, find out with our team of experts whether negligence was involved. If we find that someone is to blame for your injuries then you could be eligible to receive a large compensation payout.
