What Injuries Can You Get From Slip and Fall Accidents?
Injuries suffered in slip-and-fall accidents lead to about 9 million emergency room visits every year.
Slip and fall accidents are the second leading cause of unintentional death in the U.S.
Recovering from a serious injury suffered in a slip-and-fall accident typically requires extensive medical care and physical rehabilitation.
In the worst-case scenario, a fall victim dies or is disabled, requiring around-the-clock care.
Slip-and-fall injuries are particularly harmful to older adults.
Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Falls are also a common hazard in nursing homes, where between half and three-quarters of residents fall each year. This results in thousands of nursing home lawsuit claims each year.
That’s twice as often as older adults living at home.
