Anglesey is an island connected to mainland Wales by two bridges. Holyhead, a well-known town in Wales, isn’t on the island itself, but on Holy Island, which is just to the west of Anglesey. It is however officially part of Anglesey. The population has grown over the years to around the 11,000 mark. As you might imagine, the smaller the population in an area, the rarer accident claims tend to be. This doesn’t mean there would never be any chance of a Holyhead accident claim being warranted, though.
Some accidents are seen more often than others, and one of these types concerns falls. It’s possible to fall from a height and be injured – something that can potentially happen in some jobs where working at height is required. However, you can easily fall while on ground level too, and this can also be painful.
Injuries occurring as a result of falls
Falls can result in all kinds of injuries. At best, you might suffer some cuts and bruises, some of which might need treatment if the cuts are deep. Fractures can also occur, especially in cases where people fall and have no time to do much about it. Your instinct would be to put your hands out in front of you, but if you can’t or you don’t manage it in time, you could hurt your fingers, hands, arms or even hit your face or head on the ground as you land.
As you can see, it could be easier than you’d think to suffer several injuries if you were unlucky enough to fall. The reason for your fall should be looked into as well, because in some cases someone else could be the reason why you fell, especially if they were negligent.
