Long term effects
The reality of slips, trips and falls in Surrey Heath is that they are no laughing matter. In fact they can be very serious situations for people to deal with. And not just in the short term, there can be many long term effects.
This is something that people underestimate when they hear the term “slips, trips and falls” – they assume that it is tantamount to a grazed knee or the like. But this just isn’t always the case, and in fact it can be very serious.
It is a shame that so many do not understand quite how serious this can be and assume that people have just experienced a minor injury, when the reality is that in many different ways the effects can last a lifetime.
How people are affected by slips, trips and falls in Surrey Heath
First off is the obvious: the physical effect. Injuries can be very serious, and if you fall in the wrong way can cause problems that last a lifetime. This does not just mean that people will experience mobility problems, but that their entire quality of life is diminished – and this includes their opportunities.
Opportunities can encompass a wide array of things, from people’s careers, to their pursuits. Some people may not be able to work in their field anymore, others may have to give up their favorite sport. Many of these situations can come not from a long term injury, but an underlying condition or vulnerability (the fact you can’t play rugby because of a bad break before is just one small example).
