South Carolina Slip And Fall Turns Into Major Headache For Walmart
“Slip and fall” cases represent the bread-and-butter of the “premises liability” tort – a personal injury genre which supports an entire industry of attorneys, insurance agents, physical therapists and related professionals.
The tort is among the most common civil actions in the United States, fueled by millions of “slip, trip or fall” injuries that take place all over the country each year.
Anyway, of these incidents an estimated 800,000 require hospitalization, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And the annual cost in terms of medical treatment related to these falls was (at last count) north of $50 billion– of which anywhere from 50 to 75 percent gets subsidized by Medicaid.
And that’s before we get into attorneys’ fees and related costs …
