Have you been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault? If you have suffered any injury or loss through the fault of another person, company, or public body then you could be entitled to compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline is one of the UK’s leading law firms. We have been in business since the year 2000, helping people claim the compensation they deserve for their injuries. In that time, we have dealt with a vast injury list, from the minor to the very serious.
We’ll take a look here at two of the main categories of personal injury cases we deal with and the resulting common injury list.
Slips, trips and falls injury list
Data from the Health & Safety Executive shows that slips and trips are one of the most common causes of major injuries. Floor cleaning is a significant factor in causing slip and trip accidents. Trailing cables from vacuum cleaners and other cleaning appliances can present a trip hazard. Smooth floors left damp after cleaning can be extremely slippery. This sort of hazard can be almost invisible to somebody walking across that floor, if no warning signs have been put in place. Injuries from slip, trip and fall accidents can vary greatly but we routinely deal with cases of:
- Broken bones
- Ankle injuries
- Knee injuries
- Hand and wrist injuries, caused as the victim tries to save themselves
- Back injuries
- Concussion and head injuries
If you’ve been injured in a slip, trip or fall anywhere and you think that somebody else was to blame, get in touch with our expert team now to find out more about making a compensation claim.
Road traffic accident injury list
Road traffic accidents can have a wide range of results, depending on their severity and the direction of impact. The most common injury sustained in a car crash is whiplash. While the body is restrained by the seatbelt, the head is free to move. So when it snaps backwards and forwards with the force of an impact, a whiplash injury can occur. Other injuries resulting from road traffic accidents are, as you would expect, many and varied, but commonly include:
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
Although they are there to protect us and do undoubtedly save many lives, the seatbelt itself can be responsible for injuries such as:
- Broken ribs
- Internal injuries
