If you are in a bar or club in North Tyneside for a social occasion, you may have many things on your mind, but one fear you should not have to deal with is the fear that you could slip over a spilt beverage that someone has failed to clean up.
This can cause not only embarrassment, but also serious injury.
Had a slip in a public place in North Tyneside?
It is not a nice experience for anyone to fall in a crowded place. You can feel exposed and vulnerable and like everyone is laughing at you, even if they are in fact just concerned for your wellbeing.
But beyond the embarrassment, a slip in a public place in North Tyneside can cause a serious and debilitating injury that can take a very long time to recover from. If you are unable to get your hands down to break your fall, your back could take the brunt of the impact when you hit the ground hard.
This can cause bruising that can be incredibly painful, or the injury you sustain could be more serious. It is very possible to break a vertebrae after such a slip. This kind of injury can have a long term impact on your life.
A back injury can be life changing
If you break a vertebrae due to a slip in a public place in North Tyneside, the effects of every aspect of your life do not bear thinking about.
It is very possible that you will suffer temporary paralysis, or at the very least, your movement will be restricted to a huge extent. This can leave you unable to work, look after your children, attend to your day to day necessities or socialise with your family and loved ones.
Nobody wants to feel like a burden, and if you are forced to rely on your family and friends it can be very difficult to deal with. Obviously they are happy to help in any way you need, but that does not stop you feeling guilty for the amount of extra work they have to do to look after you and help you with all your needs.
