When to see a doctor after slips, trips and falls in Havering
In most situations, slips, trips and falls in Havering won’t be anything serious and you should be able to recover on your own without any further problems. However, in some cases, a fall will be more serious than you may realise, and require further treatment so that you can get back to normal and healthy as soon as possible.
You should think carefully after any slips, trips and falls in Havering to decide whether or not you want to or need to see a doctor, so that you can be treated for any injuries you do have, and stop them getting any worse.
- If you are in a lot of pain. Even if you cannot see any obvious injuries which require treatment, the body feels pain when there is something wrong, and your doctor does need to look you over to find out whether or not there is something that needs immediate treatment. Remember that the sooner an injury is treated the faster you can get back to normal.
- If you have excessive bruising. Even if you haven’t broken any bones and feel okay other than a little sore, excessive bruising can actually be very serious, and can lead to things like compartment syndrome or clots which require surgery.
- If you hit your head. If you know that you hit your head on the way down, or suspect that you may have hit your head, then you must go to a doctor or even the hospital right away, so that you can be checked over and any head injuries can be treated. If you do have a head injury, it may not become apparent until a little while later, which in some cases will be too late.
If you have sustained fairly major injuries as the result of slips, trips and falls in Havering, one of the things that you may be thinking of doing is making a claim for compensation.
