Fallen and broken a bone? Don’t sit back! Claim your legal right to compensation today…
Falls are one of the most common, everyday types of accident that can result in painful and debilitating injuries being sustained. Whilst the more vulnerable members of our community may be at an increased risk of suffering a fall, such as the elderly and infirm, unfortunately falls can affect anyone, of any age.
If you have sustained a fall that was caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years and you sustained an injury as a result, then it is important that you establish if you are legally entitled to pursue personal injury compensation using an expert Holywell law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline.
Tripped, slipped or fallen?
Trips, slips and falls can occur anywhere and at any time. Common causes of these types of accidents may be:
- uneven flooring
- lack of adequate hand railing
- poor lighting in passageways and staircases
- loose or frayed carpets
- highly polished flooring
- uneven stair treads
- loose paving
- loose kerb stones
- icy or untreated pavements or steps
- wet flooring
- obstacles or debris
- lack of railings or poorly supported guard railings
- unsecured ladders
- lack of health and safety training
Injured as a result?
Injuries from slips, trips and falls can be devastating for the victim as they result in many weeks of rest, rehabilitation and treatment; leaving them unable to walk independently and even unable to work.
The elderly are particularly vulnerable to becoming seriously injured following a slip, trip or fall. As they age, the elderly may suffer from a thinning of the bones which can mean that a simple fall results in a painful break to the hip or limb.
Typical injuries may include:
- bruising and lacerations
- soft tissue injury such as sprains, strains and muscular damage
- broken bones
- dislocations of the shoulder or hip joints
- neck injury such as whiplash
- head injury
- facial injury
- internal injury
- loss of consciousness
- brain injury
- fatal injury
