Can You Develop a Blood Clot After Slipping And Falling? Answers Here
A lot of individuals often think that blood clots only occur in the elderly or people who travel by plane on a regular basis as this is what we’ve been led to believe due to the numerous news items on this topic. Slip and fall accidents, while being embarrassing and life-changing, may also cause blood clots due to reasons we’ll take a look at shortly. Before we begin, it is important to note that blood clots may actually be more dangerous than the initial injury caused by the slip and fall, and it’s precisely because of this that it’s in your best interest to head over to the ER and have a full body workup even if you feel fine. Blood clots are insidious which means that you may feel fine until you’re not, and they can kill in just a few minutes if not caught in a timely manner, and once they’ve reached the lungs or the heart. If you were in a slip and fall accident, chances are that someone else’s negligence was the cause of your accident, and filing a legal claim with experienced injury attorneys in order to recover money damages is the best route to take.

Blood clots after slip and fall accidents happen due to the bruising and breaking of blood vessels typically caused by a sprained arm or foot, or a limb breaking. In addition, the body hitting the floor very hard can also cause blood vessels to burst open, causing an internal wound of sorts that the body must heal in one way or another.
Here are the signs of a blood clot after a slip and fall event:
- Warmth in the affected arm, limb or body part
- You may feel unusually tired, and needing to rest more than usual
- The affected area may swell up
- The area affected may become discolored and take on a grey pallor
- The veins around the clot may become much bigger and prominent
