Slips, trips and falls in Kings Lynn
Slips, trips and falls in Kings Lynn happen all the time. They are the most common cause of injuries here in the UK. Most occur because some neglectful person leaves a trip hazard where an unsuspecting individual can easily fall it and get injured.
Sometimes those injuries can be quite severe, especially where the injury victim is someone who suffers from the brittle bone disease, osteoporosis.
The word osteoporosis means porous bones. It is a condition where both the density and quality of bone matter is reduced. The more porous and fragile the bones become, the greater the risk of fracture. This disease is one which progresses without notice until some sort of a fall results in a bone fracture.
It is estimated that over three million people here in the UK suffer from osteoporosis, and it results in more than 500,000 fractures every year. Hip and wrist fractures are the most common of all breaks involving a person with osteoporosis.
Whether you suffer from brittle bone disease or not and you are significantly injured in a fall accident, you should contact our team of advisors here at Accident Advice Helpline. You can reach them by using the national helpline service we provide.
