    Types of injuries that could result from a slip, trip or fall


    What are the types of injuries that could result from a slip, trip or fall?

    If you have suffered broken or fractured bones, torn ligaments or whiplash then you could have been involved in a slip, trip or fall. These are the types of injuries that could result from a slip, trip or fall and could leave you with weeks or months of recovery or even longer depending on the severity of the injuries.

    Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm specialising in providing personal injury advice and assistance when it comes to making a claim for compensation after an accident. We have been doing this since the year 2000 and have a reputation and success rate that is second to none.

    You’ve been involved in a slip, trip or fall

    No one expects to be involved in an accident and when it does happen it comes obviously as a shock, not only to the system but to the body as well. The types of injuries that could result from a slip, trip or fall are such that it is not always apparent you have sustained an injury right away.

    Some fall-related injuries such as whiplash may take hours to make their presence felt. Indeed whiplash generally takes between 6 and 12 hours to begin taking a hold over the victim of an accident but the resulting injuries can last for weeks or even months.

    In some extreme cases whiplash can be a long-term problem resulting in continual and chronic pain for the accident sufferer. But what other types of injuries are there? Here is a brief list:

    • Broken arm
    • Fractured wrist
    • Broken leg
    • Twisted or broken ankle
    • Concussion
    • Skull fracture

    Of course this is not an exhaustive list and in many instances the victim of a slip, trip or fall could experience more than one of these injuries as result. While some of these injuries can heal in a short space of time, such things as breaks to leg and arm bones can take much longer. It is also sometimes necessary to have surgery to reset bones in the leg such as the tibia, fibula or femur.
