It is not just the elderly who get hurt
There is a misconception that slips, trips and falls in Staffordshire are for old people. You know, that old stereotype of old people falling in the shower and breaking their hips? And yes, though the elderly are more prone due to brittle bones, this does not mean that a fall cannot be serious for the youngest and fittest among us.
The reality is that a slip, trip or fall can be quite serious for anyone regardless of age – it all really depends on how you land. Of course there are varying degrees of hurt, from the ‘brush it off’ brigade to those who take months off work, but it can effect us all.
This is why everyone should take it very seriously if they have had a slip, trip or fall that was not their fault. They shouldn’t just brush it off and make out like that it is no big deal, nor should they just accept it as their bad luck.
The young suffer from slips, trips and falls in Staffordshire as well
In fact in many ways, slips, trips and falls can actually be more damaging to the life style of the young. For instance, an accident like this can effect your life in many different ways. Perhaps you can no longer play the sport you love because of a bad fracture or maybe your career has been hurt because you had to take time off work.
There are many ways in which an accident like this can harm your life – and that is not to mention your ability to care for young ones – and so an accident that was not your fault is something that should be taken very seriously. And anyway, if it wasn’t your fault you should really do something about it!
