Leicestershire is a county that is just about right in the centre of England. It shares borders with seven other counties to varying degrees, and the county is home to around 980,000 people. More than half of those people live in one city – Leicester. This is the city the county has taken its name from. With such a large population and a wide area taken up by the county, it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn the occasional Leicestershire accident might potentially occur.
It’s important to point out that accidents here are about as rare as they would be in any other county you chose to look into. When you consider how many people live in the average county, accidents really are quite uncommon. On the other hand, you never know what life might have in store for you next, and things do go wrong for a small minority of people on some days of the week.
A broken wrist
Make no mistake – a broken wrist is a painful and inconvenient injury to suffer. It can potentially happen in all kinds of accidents too, from a simple trip and fall to a car accident. It only takes an awkward landing or a hard impact to your wrist to break a bone there.
You will usually be put in plaster until the bone knits back together, and this can make it difficult to get on with everyday things. In some cases, you may still be able to work, but this is not always the case. If you are self-employed and unable to work, you could be unable to earn money for several weeks until the injury heals.
