Thanks for your question.

It is theoretically possible for a fall from a kitchen working surface to a hard floor to cause these injuries in a 10 month old child.

At 10 months of age, bones of a child are not very strong and even playing activities can cause fractures.

Having said that multiple fractures in a child who is below walking age would always raise suspicion of child abuse and other factors need to be taken into account including any previous injuries, injuries to any other part of the body and suspicious history.

Feel free to ask any follow-up questions.

Do take a moment to honor my work and time by rating my answer, hopefully, 5 stars.

Dear Dr.Sawhney,in your opinion,is it possible that this accident account for these 3 fractures at the same time?The doctors in UK are very funny,they say this accident can account for these injuries,but somewhat unusual account for 3 fractures at the same time.
It is uncommon to have simultaneous 3 fractures with this type of injury. Therefore the suspicion.
