Wondering how you could develop a leg injury?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we get asked all the time how you could develop a leg injury. The simple answer is sadly only too easily. Common ways how you could develop a leg injury include:
- Slips, trips or falls: Stumbling over a loose or cracked kerb or paving slab can lead to all sorts of nasty injuries. It’s astounding the injuries we encounter because a victim has encountered badly maintained pavements or poorly lit public areas. They range from sprained ankles, torn Achilles tendons, twisted knee ligaments or broken hips.
- Road traffic accidents: Pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and their pillion passengers are at the greatest risk of sustaining leg injuries during a road traffic accident due to their vulnerability and lack of protection. Cuts and bruises or broken limbs can be considered minor injuries in comparison to crushed or severely damaged legs.
- Accidents at work: Developing a leg injury at work is more common than you might imagine. Falling items in a warehouse, malfunction or improper use of heavy machinery or vehicles can lead to trapped or crushed limbs. A fall from a great height can result in leg injuries and trauma. Burns from chemicals such as fertilisers can cause long lasting damage to legs.
