What Are The Most Common Types Of Personal Injuries In Scotland?
The following incidents and accidents cause the most common types of personal injury in Scotland:
Road Traffic Accidents (RTA)
Road Traffic Accidents can cause personal injuries to other motorists, motorcyclists, cyclists, and pedestrians. Common personal injuries caused by an RTA include whiplash, concussion, scarring, fractures and psychological trauma.
Most workplace accidents lead to scratches, cuts, strains, sprains, bruising, lacerations, fractures, breaks, respiratory conditions, dermatological conditions, cancers and others.
Medical negligence also occurs in Scotland, which can cause personal injury. Personal injury commonly occurs when:
• A specialist fails to diagnose, delays diagnosis or misdiagnoses a condition leading to deterioration.
• Surgical errors that injure you or worsen your condition.
• Incorrect treatment including medical mis-prescription, incorrect dental or eye (Ophthalmological) treatment.
Slips, Trips and Falls
Slips, trips and falls are a common occurrence, which makes personal injuries sustained, very common. You could obtain scrapes, bruises or cuts, but it is possible to suffer serious injuries too, such as broken or fractured bones, spinal injuries or head and brain trauma.
