You would expect walking to be one of the safest hobbies there is, but unfortunately this is not the case, and injuries happen to the walkers all the time. Sometimes being hurt in a trip and fall in Stockport is the result of someone else’s negligence, which is why so many innocent victims of these accidents make a no win no fee accident claims.
Being hurt in a trip and fall in Stockport while enjoying a stroll
Not all walkers go over hills and dales to enjoy their hobby, many people will go for a walk in the local park, or maybe along a beach. The different places people walk all have their own hazards, and even walking along a pavement can result in someone being hurt in a trip and fall in Stockport through no fault of their own.
Pedestrian accidents are quite common. Victims are run over by road vehicles every day of the week, or it could be that they trip up a broken paving slab, and depending how they fall and what onto, could sustain some very nasty injuries.
Walking in a local park could result in having a stray football hit your head, or an angry dog could attack you. The same sort of things applies to a nice stroll along the beach on one of the few sunny days we have in the UK.
As a tiny example of how walkers can be injured, these show how easily it can happen in any circumstances, no matter where you decide to go.
The injuries sustained by walkers that result in them making a Stockport ‘no win, no fee’ accident claim
Some injuries are more common than others for walkers, but it really does depend on what type of accident they have been in, but generally the could include:
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Damage to joints
- Facial injuries
- Loss of limbs or digits
- Fatal injuries
Some of these might seem extreme for a walker to sustain, but just image what the outcome would be if the trip on a paving slab threw the victim into the path of oncoming traffic that could not stop to avoid hitting them.
