Worcestershire can be found in the West Midlands of England, and is a historic county in the region. With a population reaching over 566,000 people, it is not the most densely populated of counties in England, although it does still have a sizeable population. Fall accidents in Worcestershire are not very common at all, but falls on the same level are perhaps more common than those that occur from a height – as is the case anywhere else you go in the UK.
Fall accidents can occur in all kinds of situations and circumstances. Most of us will have fallen over at some stage in our lives, but very few of these incidents are ever caused by someone else’s negligence.
How do you know if negligence is involved in your particular case?
A fall from height is more likely to happen in a work-based situation than in any other situation, although even then it is highly rare. Other situations in which it may have the potential to occur might include somewhere that has a balcony of poor quality, which could collapse when one or more people stand on it. Similarly, a loose railing could mean someone might fall over the side if it gave way.
However, falls on the same surface could potentially be far more likely to happen. If that surface is uneven or has a step that is difficult to see, this could cause an accident. Anything that causes someone to lose their balance or to trip over could potentially lead to a fall.
