The A&E ward is designed to help people with major injuries, so it’s to be expected they see people after a car accident. You can be a safe driver, but it’s impossible to plan who you’re going to meet on the road. If you are injured in a car crash, the NHS will take good care of you but you may need other help, too. Personal injury solicitors can help you claim compensation. Please take all necessary cautions when driving to avoid an accident.
Even though exercise is important for your health, it does come with its own risks. You injure yourself in a lot of ways, and sometimes for quite simple reasons. From a lack of proper warm up to falling during a game. Minor injuries you can treat yourself – such as swelling or bruising. However, it’s important to visit A&E if you’re suffering from broken bones or dislocation, or a severe head injury. You can help protect yourself by not pushing yourself too far and knowing how to use the appropriate equipment.
Figures released by the NHS show that 300 people a week have to go to A&E due to DIY accidents. This can involve falling off ladders, using household machinery, or even mowing the lawn. The data went on to show that approximately 77,000 people have injured themselves in DIY related incidents in the past five years. It has been recommended to people who are keen to fix up their home that they are aware of their risks of the job, and take all precautions necessary.
Falls are the main reason why elderly people, 65 or over, go to A&E. Falls can lead to serious injuries. The data showed that approximately 1 in 20 older people living in the community experience a fracture or need hospitalisation after a fall.
Accidents happen every day so it’s important to try and stay as safe as you can. Whether it’s following your own common sense, or being aware of the potential risks, it’s important to be cautious. Have you had much experience in A&E?
