Falls are one of the leading causes of injuries in the United Kingdom and according to various reports they account over two million visits to the hospital to individuals of all ages every year.
Some falls are minor and the person can stand up, laugh it off and walk away but as our Injury lawyer in Staxton has found through their experience not everyone is so lucky. For some, falls can be much more painful and serious and in worst case scenarios can diminish the ability for some to lead active, independent lives.
Most people known someone who has suffered a fall at some point or perhaps it you yourself who has fallen. The risk of falling, and fall-related problems can often occur.
Common locations for falls:
•Areas with heavy traffic
•Areas prone to wetness or spills
•Unstable work surfaces
Often a fall takes place when another person or group of people have a duty of care to take steps to prevent falls but have failed to make this prevention.
Fall preventions include:
•Keeping electrical wires and phone cords secure and out of the way.
•Remove small throw rugs which may slip and cause a potential hazard.
•Remove other tripping hazards from walkways
•Regularly check the condition of walkways and steps, and repair damages accordingly.
•have regular training and information available to all on basic health and safety. Clean up all spills immediately
