This influx of visitors and harried shoppers can lead to an environment ripe for hazards. This chaos can increase the possibility of an incident, like a slip and fall, that can harm a visitor or shopper. The numerous guests and many potential hazards, such as spills, wet floors, or poorly placed displays are just a few things that can cause a slip or trip and fall accident to occur.Slip and Fall Statistics
According to the National Floor Safety Institute, more than one million (about 12%) of the nation’s hospital emergency room visits have been reported to be the results of slip and fall accidents. About 32% of slip and fall injuries in Florida resulted in hip fractures and 14% resulted in various brain injuries. 16% of all slip or trip and fall accidents occurring within the United States are fatal.
Slip and fall incidents should be taken seriously by the victim. Even if a victim does not initially see damage, an injury may present itself days or even weeks after an initial slip and fall. This is why it is important to seek immediate medical attention after becoming the victim of a slip or trip and fall accident, to obtain a professional medical opinion on the extent of injuries. Injuries sustained during or stemming from a slip or trip and fall accident can lead to multiple doctors visits, expensive medical bills, and lost wages due to missed time from work.Let Us Help You
