Slip & Fall Injuries

A slip & fall accident can happen anywhere, especially when you least expect it. Whether you’re walking along the sidewalk or down a grocery store aisle, oftentimes one step is all that stands between you and a slip, trip, or fall.

According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls and slip & falls account for a combined 9 million emergency room visits each year in the United States. How many of those visits led to injuries that could’ve otherwise been avoided?
