Slips, trips and falls occur everyday and these types of accidents are the most common reason for admissions to Accident and Emergency departments.

If you, or some one you know, have been the victim of a slip, trip or fall accident that wasn’t caused through your own fault within the last 3 years’, then the law states that you are entitled to claim compensation for any injuries that may result.

Typical slip, trip and fall related injuries
Slips, trips and falls can cause severe injuries that may take a long period of time to overcome and recover from, particularly for the elderly and infirm. These include:
- lacerations and bruising
- soft tissue injuries such as muscular, sprains and strains
- broken, fractured and dislocated bones
- internal injuries
- internal bleeding
- spinal injuries

Treating slip, trip and fall injuries
Often the victim is taken to the Accident and Emergency department for assessment and treatment. The medical professionals can examine the patient and establish any injuries using x-rays, MRI scans and CT scans.
Soft tissue injuries can be particularly difficult to treat and may take longer to heal and overcome than broken bones. Anti-inflammatory drugs may be recommended to reduce any swelling and provide pain relief whilst the tissues settle. Rest, ice, compression and elevation are all recommended to ensure that the soft tissues can heal and repair. Broken bones may require setting with plaster or surgical intervention using titanium wire, screws and plates to provide the most suitable means of securing fragments of bone, whilst reducing scarring.
