Avoiding a public transport accident in North Kesteven
When walking through a train station, the last thing you consider is that a lack of maintenance could result in you being injured. But if a loose light fixing has not been fixed, causing it to fall and strike you on the head, the repercussions can be life changing.
A serious head injury can be caused by such an accident. As can whiplash, or many other neck or back injuries. In the worst case scenario you could suffer a broken vertebrae or even brain damage.

If you break a vertebrae, recovery time can be extensive and rehabilitation can be incredibly painful.
Months and even years of agonising physiotherapy can follow, meaning that your working life and social life become non-existent. This is a lonely and depressing experience, and it is not rare for people in similar situations to suffer mental health issues as a result. Depression and anxiety mean further hospital visits, further medication and frequent counselling appointments.
