    The consequences of serious leg injuries


    Most of us are guilty of taking our bodies for granted. We walk some distance every day without once thinking about how our legs are powering us towards our destination, for example. Yet if we were to suffer an accident, the consequences of serious leg injuries may soon become only too apparent.

    Injuries like this are uncommon, but some people will know all too well how devastating such injuries can be. They can change lives, and even if the person survives their accident, they may no longer be the same as they were before.

    Examples of leg injuries that may occur

    All kinds of accidents can result in someone realising the consequences of serious leg injuries. For example, if someone is hit by a car, injuries to the legs are very common indeed. The faster the vehicle is travelling, the more likely it is those injuries are likely to be serious.

    Additionally, some accidents have occurred in the workplace that have led to serious injuries being sustained to one or both legs. In this case, they could potentially occur if someone is struck by a fork lift truck; pinned to a wall or other immovable object by something that is moving, or by becoming caught in moving machinery. These are just examples – there are other situations that may potentially cause similar injuries to occur.

    Have you suffered severe leg injuries in the past three years?

    Perhaps you already know the consequences of serious leg injuries, and how they may have the potential to restrict the amount of walking you do. Some have ended up in wheelchairs, or can only walk through the use of a walking stick, and only for short distances. In any event, the consequences can be painful in an ongoing manner, not to mention tough in other ways, as the individual may not be able to do everything they did before.
