Slip and Fall Injuries Are No Joke

When you think about slip and fall accidents, you might be picturing a banana peel and a pratt fall from a cartoon. In reality, slip and fall injuries are no joke. They account for over 1 million hospital visits each year. Slip and fall injuries are the leading cause of workers compensation claims and on the job injuries for people over 55. Twenty-two percent of slip and fall injuries each year results in more than 31 days of missed work. The most common on the job slips and falls occur on slick floors.

Slip and fall injuries pose a significant risk for people as they age. The incidence of falls goes up with each decade of life and the likelihood of death from slip and fall injuries also increases. For people aged 65-84, slips and falls are the second leading cause of injury-related deaths and for people over 85 falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths.

Occupation and age may be a contributing risk factor for slip and fall injuries but people of all ages and occupations can be the victim of a slip and fall accident and injury. These injuries can be slow to heal, can result in lost wages from time off work and can require visits to a variety of medical professionals before completely healing (emergency room visits, physical therapists, neurologists, etc.). The medical bills can pile up and even if you are covered by Worker's Compensation, the process of filing a claim can be extremely complicated.
