Slip / trip and fall accidents are among the leading causes of injury in the United States. Over a million people each year will be injured in a fall accident.
Dangers such as torn carpeting, changes in flooring, poor lighting, narrow stairs, or a wet floor can all cause someone to slip and hurt themselves.
There are two main types of falls:
- Same-level falls are usually caused by a slippery surface, poor lighting or walking in the path of a whole or other hazardous condition.
- Elevated-level falls are less common but can lead to the most severe injuries. A common example would be falling down a flight of stairs.
