    Types of injuries that could result from a fall from height


    The types of injuries that could result from a fall from height are dependent on many things:

    • The distance of the fall
    • Whether or not the fall was broken
    • Where the fall victim landed
    • How the fall victim landed

    All of these things can impact on both the nature and severity of the injuries sustained. According to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) website and RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations), falls from height are the most common cause of fatalities in the workplace, accounting for over one in every three deaths.

    The various types of injuries that could result from a fall from height

    Taking into account the overall details of the accident, the various types of injuries that could result from a fall from height include things like:

    • Muscle sprains and twists
    • Skeletal injuries
    • Neck injuries
    • Spinal injuries
    • Head injuries
    • Brain injuries

    When you consider claiming personal injury compensation for a fall from height injury, it doesn’t matter what the nature and severity of the injury is, as long as it was severe enough to require medical treatment; also that the accident or incident must be the fault of a third party for one reason or another.

    If this is the case, and the accident or incident took place in the last 3 years, the injury victim may be entitled to be compensated financially, in which case, we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
