Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries – Don’t Ignore Them, Claim Compensation Today

Slipping or tripping happens to everyone. Most of the time, it can be pretty embarrassing to fall like that. But most of the time, it isn’t your fault. And in some cases, the cases we will be discussing today, it can be the fault of someone else. Either through deliberation or through negligence, you can trip and fall.


It’s not the tripping and falling that’s the problem; it’s the injuries that are caused that become the problem. Most of the time, the injury is nothing more than a bruise. But in some circumstances, the injury can be much more severe. From fractures to broken bones, and much more can happen. There are many different types of injuries that can occur, though that depends on the circumstances of the fall.


In this blog, we will take a look at why you should consider making a claim if you are ever involved in a trip, slip and fall injury.


Severity of the Injuries

There are many factors that decide the severity of the injury, such as:



The older you are, the more prone your bones are to fracture or break. As such, when older people fall, they are more likely to break something or have a more severe injury compared to younger people. Hip injuries are the most common in these circumstances and often lead to needing hip surgery and even replacement.



The surface that you fall on can have a huge impact on the injuries that you receive. If it is a flat, marble-like surface, then the injury you receive will be more impactful, and you are more likely to break a bone.

But if the surface is jagged or has protrusions in the ground, then you are more likely to have injuries that cut you on the skin or even pierce it.

Surfaces can even have objects on them, blunt or sharp, that can affect the injuries you receive.



The angle of your fall decides the severity and location of the trauma. Some people fall face first because they trip. That can lead to knee, chest or head injuries. In comparison, others can slip and fall sideways or backwards and have injuries on their back or neck.


It isn’t just the severity of the injuries that can become the problem. It is also the later issues that people can suffer. Long-term consequences can be a thing, as many people suffer from back issues or neck issues months or even years after a fall. You can never know the damage until you go through it.

Negligence can be in many different forms. Fall can occur in the workplace because someone forgot to clean the floor appropriately or purposefully neglected their cleaning duty, leading you to fall.

The easiest way to do that is to gather the appropriate evidence. In this case, it can be CCTV footage or eyewitness accounts. Any visual account that can prove that someone else was negligent in their duties or deliberately involved in making your trip is essential to the basis of your claim.
