A large portion of the 3 million accidents that happen every year in the UK are slips, trips and falls. Sounds like quite minor incidents and some of them are, with cuts and bruises, and sometimes a whiplash injury in Sheffield being the result, but nothing much more.
Then there are the ones where:
- The slip is in a factory and the victim is thrown against moving machinery
- The trip over an obstruction left out by a shopkeeper that ends up with the victim going through the shop window
- The fall off the fifth floor on a construction site because of faulty scaffolding
These are not made up scenarios, things like this happen every day and victims are seriously injured, if not killed, in these types of accidents.

A whiplash injury in Sheffield may cause you financial problems
A whiplash injury in Sheffield, as well as all other injuries, can cause severe financial problems for the victim. If they are the main breadwinner in the home and their wages are suddenly reduced to sick pay, then the household income could drop dramatically.
To compound the problem, injuries always mean extra expenses. Most of the time nothing that costs too much on its own, but prescription charges, taxis and other similar things soon mount up to a lot of money. Then if you have to pay for help about the home or with the children, as well as the trauma of the accident, the financial problems can cause a huge amount of stress.
