SLIP AND FALLS: THE SINGLE LARGEST CAUSE OF EMERGENCY ROOM VISITS

Over one million Americans suffer a slip and fall injury on an annual basis and over 17,000 people die in the U.S. as a result of these injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 20% to 30% of people who experience a slip and fall will suffer moderate to severe injuries such as hip fractures or head injuries. The most common type of falls in the U.S. is categorized as "same-level" falls, which are accidents on walking surfaces.
