Fallen flat on your face? Don’t despair! A personal injury lawyer in Newton Mearns can make your claim stand up
Slips, trips and falls often occur when we least expect them. Unfortunately, although common, these types of accidents often cause devastating injury for those affected. These types of accident can be particularly difficult to overcome for the elderly and infirm, who may take longer to recover and sustain more serious injuries.
Slip, trip and fall accidents
These types of accident may occur through no fault of your own, but as a result of someone else’s negligence. They may include:
- Wet and slippery flooring;
- Trailing wires or cables;
- Obstacles left lying around;
- Lack of lighting;
- Lack of hand railing;
- Lack of safety barriers at height;
- Lack of toe guards on scaffolding;
- Uneven flooring;
- Loose steps;
- Loose paving;
- Unmarked changes in floor height;
- Sporting injury;
- Winter sports injury; and
- Water sports injury.
Injuries caused by slip, trip or fall accidents
Injuries can range from simple lacerations through to fatal injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the injuries may include:
- Lacerations and bruising;
- Internal injury;
- Internal bleeding;
- Soft tissue injury;
- Neck injury;
- Head injury;
- Facial injury;
- Broken, fractured or dislocated bones;
- Loss of limb;

Diagnosing your injury and receiving treatment
A medical practitioner will perform a thorough physical examination and diagnose your injuries using X-rays, CT scans or an MRI if internal injuries are suspected. It is important that medical advice is followed regarding pain management and recuperation, in order to promote the best outcome for recovery.
