Slip Fall Injuries are Costly!

April 24, 2017

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS):

65% of fall-related injuries occur as a result of falls from same-level walking surfaces

Over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury every year

An estimated 20 – 30% of people who experience a slip and fall will suffer moderate to severe injuries such as bruises, hip fractures, or head injuries

The most common fractures that occur from slip and fall accidents are fractures of the spine, hip, forearm, leg, ankle, pelvis, upper arm, and hand

Slip and fall accidents are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and these account for 46% of fatal falls among older Americans

Slips, trips and falls account for between 12 - 15% of all workers' compensation expenses

These injuries cost employers approximately $40,000 per incident
